vintage English soldier's pocketknife

Started by Bryan OShaughnessy. Last reply by Bryan OShaughnessy Nov 19. 7 Replies

I recently picked up a couple of these pocketknives and plan to clean and make them usable for everyday carry.  I own probably ten of these things (see the clasp-knife in the link below, not the bayonet) and none of them are easy to use; all the…Continue

Marbles safety knife

I found a Marbles Safety knife (I think it is made to be a fishing knife, because it has jimping on the back of the blade, sort of like "scalers").  This design has three separate pieces pinned end-to-end, to make the blade fold inside the middle…Continue

WR Case & Sons, Bradford PA Slim Trapper question

Started by Terry Koch. Last reply by Terry Koch Oct 9. 24 Replies

Factory markings on backsprings

Started by Bryan OShaughnessy. Last reply by D ale Sep 23. 2 Replies

  I'm restoring (read: cleaning/polishing/sharpening/lubricating) a Utica utility/camping/Boy-Scout knife.  I usually rotate each blade until the backspring has elevated to its highest position so that I can wire-brush any rust or dirt.  The end of…Continue

Im not sure if its an improvment either but there are a lot of those alloy SA knives, now he has a unique knife. Very well done.

If I was your Shop teacher I would give you an A+ for that project.

Especially nice work on those pins! If I were the owner of that knife I would be very pleased.

One of the more fiddly projects I have taken on. Is it an improvement? I trust the owner thinks so.
My first time ever with Micarta which was interesting and as always I learnt heaps along the way.

Derek

I .. like you .. don't do it for the money.

I do it for the knowledge I gain in the process.

.

I find something very self rewarding when I succeed

i.e. when the final result is .. nice.

and

I learn something EVERY time.

.

I add just a lil bit more to my skill set.

That is my reward for doing the projects ... some of which I've posted here.

.

I can relate

 D ale .... why?  You are correct I didn't ask I guess he just has a 'thing' for micarta.

I'm actually asking why I said yes right now... I am a bit apprehensive that this last little bit of the build will test my skills. I don't do this for money ... just for the challenge.

Got "Side Tracked" (it happens a lot)

Fella asked me if I could put some Micarta handle scales on a Victorinox Solo

I like a challenge soooo....  (All pics are reduced file size)
