Greg you give a lot to the rest of us AAPK'ers with informative posts, great pictures of great knives and always a positive attitude. So if luck is involved to some degree with these fine acquisitions, you deserve it.
Actually i have had times of luck too like the early days of GEC & Northwoods before there was any competition.

Here is a nice little Empire I got in recently. 2 5/8".
It fits nicely with the other equal ends from Empire.
A pen and a whittler, both 3 1/16" closed.
