Outgas Auction

Postby RobesonsRme.com » Fri Jan 12, 2018 3:51 pm

Came across this on Ebay this morning. A mixed lot of knives, mostly Fightin' Roosters, all of which are rusted, pitted and suffering from Celluloid Outgas Syndrome, an often fatal disease. ::facepalm::

Charlie, that is a sad situation! Probably been stored and what a surprise! :(
A question not about outgassing but on one of the knives. Are you able to determine the manufacturer of the double barreled muskrat? Is it a Fightin' Rooster, too? A member sent me a RR Canoe like that and they are truly a puzzle to me. Do you have any thoughts about the origin of such knives? A regular muskrat is a practical knife but with the extra width of the handle I believe it would not feel good in the hand, I know the double barreled Canoe is very awkward.

If you are referring to the dog bone shaped knife, it's Fightin' Rooster.

The scissors are Case and the little black handled pen knife is a Robeson, which is why I looked at the auction in the first place.

The worse part about outgasing is cell scaled knives stored with other knives can take out your whole collection. I keep my cells away from other knives and out in the open where I can keep a close eye on them.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
