I am pleased you can find something of interest and or usable in the Box.
Had I drawn another name I would likely not have sent quite that many knives. Your fine reputation as a master mechanic is why I decided to fill the box as much as I could.
You just never know when somebody may ask you to work up an old Kabar & you could use some of those parts.
The little wood knife is actually a Shapleigh & does have some shoe advertising faintly visible on the side.
The second reason I went for Quantity is .... well I was severely lacking in any quality this year. I completely understand the rules of this game & It's only my second year to participate but I would always like to include at least some good with the bad. I just didn't hardly have much of anything good on hand at the time.
A few of those came to me in last years box. The rest were mostly provided by my dad. He likes to bid & Buy at estate sales also. I told him a few years ago that pretty much any knife made in the US has at least some value. I have since amended that a few times to include Intact blades, etc. He snagged a few batches of knifes that were 70% broken. It's fair trade , I buy as much old train items for him & my picks are not always stellar either.
I did receive the pack last Friday & will be posting on your Poetry & knife selections later today.
