It's In The Mail

Postby jerryd6818 » Fri Nov 06, 2015 3:03 pm

Are you like me and just can't wait until you get it to show off your latest acquisition? Feel free to post the seller's pictures here. You can post your own pictures later in one of the various threads dedicated to new acquisitions (for example: "Mail Call ! Post your new pickups here....." , "Mail Call Post your new GECs", etc, etc)

Supposed to have been here yesterday but USPS tracking still shows it as leaving OPA LOCKA, FL is this Camillus USMC MIL-K utility knife. I've wanted one for a long time and finally found one I could afford. Now if the USPS just doesn't lose it............

I'm trying to complete my collection of the Kershaw 1001 Two Can scissors knife. There are four varieties of them and I have two, polished stainless (maybe aluminum) handles and red anodized aluminum handles. I just found one with blue anodized handles so all I need to complete the set is one with black anodized handles. This one is coming from Gawguh and tracking shows it left Hotlanta last night.

Nice knives Jerry! I have a couple of those Mil-k's. Mine just say U.S. Very cool. Those Two Cans are cool! How well do they work? Being Kershaws I can imagine that perform their duty's very well.

Randy, they're Kershaw so of course they're Kershaw Sharp (which has become my definition for "hurt ya sharp"). They're a very nice little key ring knife which doubles as a very handy pair of scissors. It's my opinion that the scissors work better than those in a Vic.

I like that MIL-K utility knife Jerry, been wanting one myself. Here is a pic from the pocket knife book you sent me. You can take the description for what it's worth. It's still a K-neat K-nife.
