1972 Rare 3 Blade electrician in beautiful shape !

"I do not know where you found this but t is indeed rare.  The 3 blades are not seen as often as they were heavy users in the trades.  To find one in this condition is just awesome!"

Hand Forged CASE

"Good score...  I'm guessing it was an estate sale find (or an auction from an estate sale)? I really like that cutting board -- spalted maple?  Whatever it is, I like it!"

Thanks for your very generous comments, Alec! I do play with paracord a little. Some of my lanyards I make myself and some I just make better by adding beads to lanyards made my someone else.

Have a great evening, my friend!

Thanks for your comments about my dad's knives. I wish I had more to post but I can't find the flash drive that has them on it. I'll start working on that as soon as I have time. Kind of cool you are a musician. I've been a singer all of my life. I've won a few competions and I know a few musicians in Branson. What's your genre.
