The last one today is a sweet John Primble Belknap in the original box that held 1/2 dozen of these little guys as a store display.
We are probably talking in the 40s for this set, so it is hard to keep the box (cardboard) and in such good condition.
The blade is etched (sorry it is hard to read) and says:
John Primble Finest Steel
The handles are peach seed imitation bone and both are in excellent condition.
The box itself is close to…Continue

And some new vvintage folders for you. The first is a Winchester Barlow with two blades. I have a couple of open slots in that case I posted photos of awhile back. This one has beautiful handles, it's damn nea minty since it is some 80-90 years old. I like these old Winchesters.…Continue
Cutlery of all kinds including knives were made in Sheffield, England for centuries. Large factories employing thousands of people turned out all manner of tools, knives and generally cutlery. The products were exported all over the world. Sheffield salesmen were at work in every continent. It’s products were synonymous with quality and those of it’s craftsmen who failed to live up to the exacting standards required might expect to see there products smashed on the guildhall…Continue
Will post a few knives today. The first is probably the best utility knife I have ever held. It's from Garrett Wadeand is a MORAKNIV from Sweden. The name is etched on the blade but hard to read in these pics. You can see it on the sheath in one photo though.
Why do I like it? Durable grippy rubber…Continue
I'd just like to share this Cattaraugus Cutlery Co. straight razor with everyone.
This was my grandfather's razor. He got it while he was the manager of the Gaut & Becker Hardware Store in Jeannette Pennsylvania in the 1930's. These were made up for the store, as you can see the Gaut & Becker - Jeannette Pennsylvania etch.
This is one of my cherished possessions...........…Continue

I wrote the following not knowing "My Latest Activity" is limited to 140 characters. So I decided to post it as a blog.
My wife and I are getting ready to move her/my business to a different location in Elkhart, Indiana. I am hoping this new location will result in more sold knives. I recently bought via Ebay, a handsome oldish Case display case. I am excited about this.
I still haven't connected with Wayne Whitted about getting a Purdue knife, but I would like to do this…Continue
I am new to iKC, and thought I would describe to you my knife collecting life (which is not too long). To start with, I am a recently retired structural engineer. I worked 34 year performing stress analysis on aircraft wheels, brakes, and struts, mostly for large commercial aircraft, but also some military aircraft. If you don't mind me "tooting my own horn", I structurally designed the B2 (stealth bomber) main wheels and brakes. I retired in March of 2011, and picked up an old hobby I…Continue
