Started by Kevin D. Last reply by Kevin D Jul 12. 2 Replies

Good evening everybody!I have a question that will probably have as many answers as there are opinions on it.I recently came into the stewardship of a 1888 Prussian bayonet.  Before actually taking possession, I thought it was a 1940ish bayonet,…Continue

Got it.  Thanks for the pointer.  It should be fun and informative to marry these two and come up with one usable knife.  Any thoughts on the MOP?  I am very aware of the fragile nature of this material.  Am also aware that working with it can be risky healthwise, so don't plan to do any abrasive work with it.  Had a custom knife maker friend in Illinois years ago that warned me about the potential health risks.  He has since gone to his reward, but was a knife maker of the first order in my opinion.  Thanks again for the help so far.

Also Bruce .. the bold letters on my most recent comments are "LINKS" that will take you direct to the pertinent data.

Re: the Schrade LB7 w/ broken liner. 
.
If the blade's in good shape .. you might be able to save that toward another LB7 w/ a used up blade. Sorry about the broken liner .. I think your out of luck on that one. On the 'bay .. used one's in good shape can be had in the 20~25 range.

Comment by Bruce Zenge on December 6, 2019 at 15:59

And while I'm on a roll, the other question is about a broken liner on an LB7 Schrade.  Are there any replacement liners that can be accessed for this knife and is it worth repairing, other than the practice, that is.  Pics attached, thanks to D ale's instruction.  All opinions appreciated.

?? does the gap close up if you squeeze the effected area of the knife between your finger & thumb ??

Good & useful pics !

Comment by Bruce Zenge on December 6, 2019 at 15:53

Gonna add another couple.  First one on the first reply shows the general condition of the knife.  Seemed like a good investment at the time...

Comment by Bruce Zenge on December 6, 2019 at 15:43

OK, here we go.  I can post more if it will help but thought this may get it started.
