The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
IS IT A TAYLOR CUTLERY MOP PEANUT PATTERN?
Ok - 1st I love this Sunday Go to Meeting Knife. I agree with Mr Parker Payne that it has the look of a peanut. My addled memory has fermented a bit and I offer a couple of thoughts on which I would welcome corrections. I think that this might have been a contest Knife from Jan's collection that came home home to you. I think it is a prototype and that it was made shortly after the Daniel's family acquired Queen Cutlery. Please, let me know if any fragments of my memory are real - LOL. Best regards and Joyful Holidays !
Bill Fletcher, you have pretty good memory.
I bet it has a COA and a wharncliff
I will allow Ms. Jan to describe the knife more completely than I can.
I do know it was a Parker pattern. It came in three sizes in the Case Classic line
I think it went something like this.
First special project out since The Daniels Family had taken over, it was called The Dawn of a New Era. Most folks may not remember that it was also the first founders day here at iKC where I was an owner not a manager :). Schatt & Morgan Dogleg whittler, Pearl w/Abalone inlay. There were only 5 of these made for iKC
And I love mine Ms. Jan!
Cool knife Ms Data, It is a beauty. Jan, if I ever knew, the memory of the fixed blade had disappeared in the mists. A very neat pair of Founder's knives. All the best regards.
That one was an experiment to see how many of the members asking for a fixed blade would commit. Hence the low number of 5 LOL
