"Nice one Tobias! I think they were made in Japan by Vernco. If so, you're right about being 1970's. They are good quality knives from what I've seen. Congrats and great find."

"Yah, that's the way I look at it too, it may or may not make a difference, but why risk it? I also stow the auto's in my collection in the open position for the same reason. I know a few fellas that have purchased older factory knife…"

"That's a thing of beauty, Tobias! Congrats!! Does it bother you to store a knife in the partially open position? It always worries me that the backsprings will develop a memory and make the snap a bit weaker over time."

Knives without tang stamps or not in the books?

Posted on December 2, 2010 at 7:47 3 Comments

Over the years I've come across a few knives that have no tang stamps or tang stamps I couldn't find in the modest collection of price/identification guides that I have on hand.

The story of the 1942 Imperial W.C. Fields/Mae West Toothpick

Posted on November 5, 2010 at 20:57 11 Comments

My Grandpa bought this knife for my collection back around 1970 from an antique store out in Wichita KS.
