MYSTERY OF THE 3" 6265

 My knife measures 3-1/4" long it has 2 blades one pen like and another some longer but about the same style. Both blades are tang stamped with the tested 1920-1940 stamp the longer blade has 6265 with XX stamped over it. The handles are a redish greenish bone.(excuse the scientific color description) The shield shows a closed c.On page 120 of Sargents 7th edition, he shows a 6165 large frame hunter with a 1914-1919 Bradford production date.

The Viper has struck.

I saw the production schedule on GEC's website yesterday. I had told myself ,sternly , that I would resist for a while.

A Preliminary Thought on The Trapper Pattern

By preliminary, I mean I hope readers will be kind and,if I say things that are wrong they will help me to get it right.  Anyway, here it is:

 The “Trapper” pattern pocket knife emerged in the 1920’s and quickly overtook the Barlow as the leading American pocket knife form.  Although no pattern for pocket knives or for just about anything else emerges “whole cloth” or totally new, the Trapper seems to me to come about as close to that as possible.  It is not difficult to see the…
