First knife acquisitions of 2020 are heading my way, from our own blazzar5. And 4 beauties no less ::super_happy:: .
First to start the ball rolling...
An Schatt & Morgan, from the "File and Wire Series", jigged honey brown bone, camper style. My very first high end camper, can't wait to look it over in the flesh.
Schweeeeet! ::ds::

Next up is a vintage Edge Brand, Solingen Germany, stag bowie. She's in mint condition (sweet ::super_happy:: ), the acid etch is in surprisingly great condition.
I've been wanting a vintage fixed blade for some while now.
Another winner of a knife ::woot:: .

I have that sheath, but not that knife. I don't know if my great-uncle lost it, or it went to someone else, and I ended up inheriting the leftovers everyone else in the family didn't want.

My Granddad gave me the smaller Edge Brand 460 (3 3/4 skinner blade). It holds an edge really well. I need to adjust the guard though--it doesn't fit my meaty fingers.

I guess I am on a camillus kick. This morning I bought a bone handle 67 pattern stockman. It was well priced.

Very interesting. Long line, bone handled (you don't see that very often) and no pattern number stamped on the pile side tang or anywhere else. ::hmm:: Looks to be in reasonably good condition for it's age.

It also lacks a shield. I've seen many synthetic and a few bone handled 67 patterns that were not stamped with a number, do you know why they did that?

I am hoping it'll be good. I can't tell if it has the shorty clip blade or regular.

Just shows how observant I am. I didn't notice the lack of a shield. What you're calling a "shorty clip blade" looks more like a sheepfoot blade to me. Opinions??

The shorty clip is an oddity with the main blade that I've noticed on some 67's and other 3 7/8'' camillus stockman patterns. Some of them have a shorter clip blade with less belly that looks like it was intended for a smaller frame knife. These were not sharpened down blades as I've seen them with the factory edge. Unfortunately I no longer have any examples with which to show a comparison.

I just bought this Craftsman, 3 blade, swelled center, "whittler" pocket knife. It's a pattern 9494 and as far as I can tell, not stamped or marked as such. When I receive it, it'll get the once over. I'll take some pictures and post them in the appropriate location(s).

Just a few moments ago, I purchased this (probably) Geo Schrade, single blade, wire jack, hawkbill pruner, pocket knife. When I receive it, I'll give it the once over. I'll take some pictures and post them in the appropriate location(s).
