Weird mother of pearl

This knife has me totally baffled. I have a lot of mother of pearl handled knives but this knife displays a very "smoky" appearance that I don't think is natural. There is no apparent sharpening of…Continue

"That is, most likely, zebrawood.  It almost has a camel thorn look to it, but very much doubt that Queen used camel thorn."

Quite Unique and very limited

Posted on April 17, 2016 at 8:53 5 Comments

Handle material is quite often unique, beautiful and durable, or all three of these features, but I think the handle on this knife of mine "takes the cake" as far as uniqueness especially. The wood on this handle came from the bottom of one of the first oil wells drilled near my home over 140 years ago. Many of the wells were abandoned after the oil gave out and just recently within the past 5 or 10 years these wooden rods (called sucker rods), were removed from the average depth of 600 feet…

Price and Value guides

Posted on April 11, 2016 at 22:53 2 Comments

I've been a collector of American antiques for over 65 years starting at about age 13. My main interests were mechanical items, American glass and stoneware, Indian relics, early timbering tools, pocket and sheath knives including firearms.

Sorry I missed you the other night, Don.  I usually leave my browser open, so I'm guessing the site was reporting me as being online even though I was in bed sleeping.  I've been checking if you're on whenever I hop on, but you haven't been.  Congratulations on being featured.  I've been enjoying your posts in the Queen group.
