I always enjoy each new acquisition no mater if it is NIB or just new to me, but honestly I enjoy most of all, the older ones that can be cleaned up a bit, sharpened, fondled and actually carried and used.
Today such a Queen was in our mailbox. This one really rings my bell! I've cleaned it a bit with Mothers and touched the blades up and am pleased beyond measure. It is a real HOK. It is a Queen #19 ('58-'60) with real Winterbottom bone handles, the blades are not full and the clip is a bit short but I can live with this one. It also has the proverbial gator characteristic, snap! It is the result of a trade with member just bob.
