PARKER Smooth Bone Broken Spring by Tony Wood

Postby TripleF » Mon Feb 11, 2019 10:13 pm

I loved, loved the smooth bone on this knife and because of that I decided to have the broken spring and blade removed
and converted into a single blade slimline trapper.

Amazing job and I am truly grateful! Thank you sir!!

Nice save! Good looking too. I bet that slimmer profile rides real in the pocket as well. ::tu::

I can see why you like that knife Scott, looks even nicer as a slim single blade I think. The smooth bone on some of the Parker Cut knives is attractive, this one has some bone.
Nice save Tony. ::tu::

I agree, looks even better as a single blade. Those handles look similar to some mammoth i have seen.
Parker had a huge number and variety of knives made. Some are very good quality knives. I think the knife world is now ready for dedicated Parker collectors There would be a lot to learn.

Some of the early Parker knives were surprisingly good.
I would have just made a new backspring, though.
