Pressbutton guardian pair

Postby knfcollector » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:22 pm

I was fortunate to come across a heretofore unknown variation of a Pressbutton Knife Co guardian in the size of a PB "Buisness". I would be interested in any comments as well information regarding its manufacture, such as any catalog reference or any knowledge of the existence of another you may know of. Note the lovely "Guardian" etch.

WOW - Those are nice.

All I know is from reference books and Pressbutton Knife Co was founded by George Schrade and operated between 1982 to 1923

Edit - Oops - Dyslexic fingers meant from 1892 to 1923

The words vintage and antique are vague. Actually most words are vague. Even the word vague is vague.

Beautiful knives.

Research says ladders in the home are more dangerous than firearms, so I keep 20 firearms in case some idiot tries to sneak in a ladder!

Thanks. This is one of the rarest Pressbutton that I am aware of. I'm blessed to own it.

What Roger said "WOW"!
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

This is one of the most desired American made switchblades and is on many collectors Holy Grail list. Named the 'Guardian' from the Press Button Knife Co. patented in 1892 and designed by George Schrade. This model, with nickle silver fixed-guards, was only made for a few years and is very hard to find. This knife is in exceptional condition and a true beauty to look at.

We're slowly returning to the "glory days" of automatic knives. We need to learn to enjoy these times and bask in the glow by purchasing and using these knives, regardless of their origin.
