Blades need a skillful sharpening and the master spine at the tip filed down a bit to help re-create a pointy tip. Or leave tip blunt and use the pen blade when you need a sharp point. I think it is great that Mike will be carrying it as a daily user.

I have been hunting for a small hand full of the USA made Old Timer knives lately. First off.... they do come up for auction on ebay from time to time but when they do, the price goes past where I feel comfortable paying before the auction ends.
SO... can you guys give me a fair ball park figure for the few I am still hunting?
I know the price has to be controlled mostly by the scarcity or how many were produced.
Anyway.... I am looking for the following to finish up my collection.
I've seen pics of them all so I do know that they exist....LOL.... I guess I just need to try to apprehend these varmints without killing my pocket book.
Thanks for your input everyone!!

If you are looking for an 8OTY and a 34OTY then the 881Y and the 834Y are the same knives but likely easier to find. The yellow old timers were only made in 1990, likely from using leftover yellow handles from the then discontinued 881Y and 834Y, which both had a longer life than the yellow ot's.
