Let's see if I can resurrect this thread with the few R. Klaas knives I own. An identical sleeveboard made an appearance in this thread six years ago, so I felt it was safe to post another one after so long. :mrgreen:

The two stag knives are duplicates from my EDC pile. I have safe queens (that are probably better-looking, honestly) but I'd have to go digging to find them. So I'm giving you the working knives instead. :lol:

Thanks, basser5! ::handshake:: The sleeveboard was so nice when I got it that I resisted carrying it. However, at some point I figured life's too short and slipped it into the watch pocket. It's got even more patina now and the big master spear (which seems almost oversized relative to the knife) is still shaving-sharp to this day. It regularly gets toted these days, especially to complement a larger knife on the belt or in the LFP. ::tu::

I'm new to the site and the extent of my knife collecting is that I carry a Spyderco pocket knife and have a Benchmade Bushcrafter for camping. I came across this Klaas knife and have searched online but have only found examples that have a kissing crane logo and don't have the sawtooth back. This one is marked ROB T KLAAS Germany on one side and has a KLAAS logo and Solingen on the other. Any info and if any value would be greatly appreciated. Thanks you

Hi all,

I just saw this one on eBay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Robert-Klass-S ... 0&LH_BIN=1

It looks brand new, not just NOS. It's marked Solingen, so I'm hopeful that it is actually made (and assembled) in Germany ::pray::
It also looks well made. I assume that it is a contract knife with another manufacturer, but I'm not sure at all.

Any thoughts?
Thanks!
Keith

I'm not real familiar with Klaas, but I think it is real, made in Solingen, sometime around 2012-2016.
If you go to the web page printed on the box, using the WAYBACK machine, there are several versions of the klaas web page between 2012 and April 2016. The pictures are gone, but the text remains. After that date, the page disappears. (http://www.robert-klaas.de)

SOLINGEN is on both the tang stamp and the box. ( not "SOLINGEN STEEL" like Frost does)
<edit> Added some pics from the auction for future research.

Here is an older KC, has seen some significant use but still a "Klassic Klaas".

Thanks, I appreciate that comment. These old Kissing Cranes are hard to come by, at least in my area.
