Now there's my definition of a matching pair. Very nice Erwin. Beauty, eh.

Nice find! I'm still searching for the Old Buck without the shield to match my Young Buck also sans shield. When I saw the shielded Young Buck floating around in the bay I tried to snap it up but you'd be surprised at how high it went considering it's a recent-vintage Delrin-handled Camillus (which may no longer be in production but are basically everywhere on the secondary market).

These two white bone mini trappers have a slight resemblance...cousins, perhaps? (Relatives of "Uncle Jim" Parker)

I keep striking out just trying to get the MOP version. Hadn't an inkling that a black pearl version existed. I shouldn't be surprised that you have the set, Q. :lol: Those are some really nice knives and I am a big fan of the subject matter. ::tu:: But I wonder why the black pearl scales aren't pinned like the white pearl... ::hmm::

These two versions of the Space Shuttle Columbia knife were made by different companies (according to the tang stamps); and, in addition to the attachment method of the covers as you pointed out, have another noticeable difference in the size of the nose cone bolsters.

BTW--the Black Pearl version of this knife is the only one I have ever seen; I don't know if that's because it's particularly "rare" (as in, very few in existence) or just one of those knives that doesn't come up for sale for some reason. My white Parker Cut. Co. is not MOP, it's some type of synthetic material like celluloid or acrylic. I have also seen a brass version which has a spear/pen blade and no shield--I guess you could say the whole knife is kind of like a large size (brass) shield.

All I can say about Yin, Yang, and their cousins is that they are a mighty fine looking family, very very nice.
