I’ll keep my eyes out Lyle but have seen only a couple in a few years - BTW - you said top left ::hmm:: - top left knife is a Moose pattern :lol: - top right pattern a nice FJ - unless the photo flipped - nonetheless I personally would jump on either one ::nod::

As I said nice knife Ray !! Based on background measurements is that 3 1/2 “ closed???

:lol: - Lyle - I can use a Remington Hawkbill - just patiently waiting for the right one - honestly still have to find a Miller Bros (just never see many) and Holley Hawkbill too - I’m picky though these days :wink: ...

Great pattern, great maker. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a H&B in the flesh.

Nice H&B quill gypsumele ::tu:: ...

H&B Crown Whittler (2 ½” closed length)…. No doubt a small whittler but very well made... Overall in great shape with inside still retaining original finish – MOP; hard snapping blades all the way around with wedged back springs… lightly used.. interesting as there is not a deep stamp H&B on master but given the relative small size of blade it would have had to been a very small die to work…

What a little beauty, Lee. Great lines on that one. A very clean whittler. ::tu:: ::tu::
