Thanks Floyd. Solid knife with warm bone handles. This is the finest SABRE I have. I was quite surprised how well built it is. ::handshake:: :)

I have owned a few well made Sabre folding knives, made in Japan. I think Sabre had some knives, fixed blade ?, made in USA.

I have a couple Sabre stockmen, that were my Grandfather's. I think they are better than the credit they are given. That's a nice looking one!

When I was a boy, there was a Sabre countertop display case at Lane’s Drug Store.

There was a decal on the knife board that read, “$1.99 Your Choice!”

Don’t recall if the Daddy Barlow was there.

Don’t let that price discourage you from hunting Sabre knives, Case knives were not a whole lot more back then.

Thank you Charlie. I never knew Sabre knives had these bone handles. I have a fake pearl watermelon knife that is a Sabre and another Daddy Barlow Sabre with plastic handles. I seen this bone handled one a few months back and couldn't get it off my mind. So when me and my wife were back up at Cape Girardeau antique store it was still there so I just had to have it. I like the Daddy Barlow's looks. Thank you for your nice comments and know that the Pearl Tiny Robeson Barlow you gifted me a few years back still holds a special spot in my display cabinet. I dont carry it but I admire it often! ::handshake:: :)

That is a beautiful knife!
Sabre's are like a lot of knives - their quality and design may vary widely based upon many factors.
Some are shell-handled, while others (like yours) are of higher quality and traditional build.
It looks really good, and probably holds a great edge!

Thank you Reverand. I was very happy to have found it. I put a very sharp edge on it. Lot of blade and handle on this one. I couldn't be happier with it. I appreciate your kind words! ::handshake:: :)
