It will be downright beautiful. I want to do the color with velvet flocking, not painting. The more I think about it, my scheme will only enhance the value and collectability of the piece. And putting the best knives into it rather than the proper period knives will make it unbelievably desirable. I'm doing it! You talked me into it!! Game on!!

Found a very nice 9885. Half way there!

Yehuda, you're going to be finished before you know it. Have you worked on the display it self? I haven't had the time. That 9885 looks good. ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

No. I'll get around to it. I'm​ not in a rush.

Four more to go!!!!

I have a problem don't I?!

I put my H Böker & Co's Improved Cutlery horn handle stockman in the display. I don't know if this will be it's permanent home, it's in a class all it's own, but it fits and it doesn't quite go with my collection of early Böker bone scale knives. It gives the display flavor.... we'll see.

or sumthin' like that! ::ds::

I can't wait to see it chock full o' Bokers.

Query. My display calls for a pattern #6384 and I've found a pattern #5252 that's absolutely beautiful. Are the patterns dimensions close enough for the #5252 to work in my display?

5252 is supposed to be about 1/4" longer than the 6384, so I don't think it will fit.
It's worth a shot though!

The seller says it's 3 1/4" and the hole for the 6384 is dead on 3 1/4"" so it'll be tight. The 5252 is blue bone, just lovely.

There's always this!!

Last night I ordered the blue suede flocking kit for the display and I bit the bullet and bought the rest of the knives except for one that is unavailable, the #9908 dogleg jack. If anybody runs across one in NM or NOS, clue me in! If I can get that one, I'll have the display together and in the blue color scheme by next weekend!

Got the 5252 today. It's not the style I go for but for this display it adds variety. It does fit but really snug.

The proper knives are all dark brown scales and one imitation pearl handle. I'm doing colors for this set. It just looks nice!
