Great looking knives!

Thankyou Michael A Losicco.  You can't  hope for anything much more with these two knives.  I have a mixed collection of hunters-lock backs, coke bottles, also a lot of Canal Street Cutlery (contemporary)  fixed blades, etc.  Also some classic and contemporary Sunfish; Daddy Barlows, and Barlows.  Not all are shown in my photo gallery.

Hi Paul, what about my question about the Hawk and Barlow being for sale?? Mike 

Michael,

   Nothing I have here is for sale. Some of my knives are from the golden age of knife collecting. Ones preserved over the years show respect to those who took pride in their hand work.  The pictures here show detail that the older reference books could not.  One may wonder if the older crafts people from companies such as Napanoch had workers who knew that their knives would last through time.
