I received this Allen Cutlery Co., Newburgh, N.Y., two blade pocket knife, yesterday. I really like these all metal, simple design knives. This one fits in nicely with my other 3 Allens. I'm still searching for the patterns that I don't already have, to complete the "series." :D

I have posted a display and ad for the Allen company previously. However as will happen around here while looking for something else I found a few pieces you might like to see. there aare four Allen type knives one has a niagara Falls shield obviously a souvenir knife it is marked only Made in USA. Most Allens have a single piece wrap around handle that you can see through bottom to top. However the 2 blade version seems to have a backspring. Apparently the top rivit could be large or small headed rivit. I included a pic of an Allen box that turned up. Also I ran across a group of Eagle knives These also had a single piece handle however it was bent so that it covered the back of the knife they also do not seem to have a back spring however the back of the one piece handle seems to help serve that purpose. I also included a NYK Wallkill river knife which it seems to have an eagle type handle but no backspring and to me almost seems like a combination of the Allen and Eagle. I have also seen these from Walden Knife I think I have one but I have no idea where it is. LT PS I was just putting these knives away and saw another one which I have no idea about it is a modern military style 2 blade and I have never seen another????? it is marked Allen Newburgh NY

I always enjoy seeing new Allen patterns and variations. A few posts ago (page 2), I posted pictures of a red handled knife that looks like the green handled knife in the third picture that you just posted. I now have two of them and I don't know which company made them. The only stamp is MADE IN USA. Here they are, click to enlarge.

I just bought this knife a few minutes ago. When I receive it, I'll give it the once over and post MY pictures in the appropriate location(s). These pictures are the seller's.

Well I received it this past Friday. My fifth Allen Cutlery Company pocket knife. This one is stamped on the handle and on the tang. It is the shortest one out of the five, measuring at 3 1/8" closed. The "before" pictures are in the post just above this one. I gave it a gentle cleaning and here are MY pictures.
