"I wish I had a few of the yellow handled pocket knives that you have.  They are as rare as hens teeth now days.  I missed buying when they came out and still regret it. The entire collection of bucks are beautiful."

User/Collector
How did you hear about iKnifeCollector?
I just stumbled in one day
Do you currently subscribe to any knife publication (offline)
Yes
How long have you collected knives?
41 to 45 years
Favorite Kind of Knives
stockman preferably with stage grips. But I have been known to buy a trapper or a canoe or a congress or a barlow or a toothpick or a tactical or a lockback or... who's kidding they are all my favorites. I can always find something that I like about a knife.
About Me
54 year old IT Tech, though I was schooled as a Draftsman and worked for over half my career as one, living in central Ms on the Ms River.
Married to the same woman for 35 years with 2 grown boys.
Now a 63 year old retired former IT Tech still married to same woman but with 2 boys a daughter-in-law and 2 grand daughters.
I now spend my time as an Uber driver for the girls and a baby sitter when called on.
Interests
My collection is various in nature, when I see a knife that I like the looks of I usually buy it. Most of my purchases are production not custom.
Other Hobbies
It seems that I sometimes I just can't help myself and go and purchase a gun, usually a handgun, more than likely over .40 in caliber. The problem with collecting guns is they go up in price but my retirement check doesn't go up at the same pace. I also have a small collection of 1/18 scale diecast cars, mostly 60's and 70's muscle and somehow a M48 & M4 tank and a M3 Half-Track.

A little something my son gave me.

Posted on May 29, 2020 at 15:47 1 Comment

Went over to the eldest  for lunch and not only did he feed me

he gave me a little something.

A Bastion Braza EDC folder that he got from Battle Box.

D2 steel with stainless handles and ball bearings.

Weighs a ton but a really nice knife.…

Rome,

I've tried to PM you twice now through iKC. Perhaps, the attached link presented an issue.

.

I'd preferred to send this via a PM out of courtesy to Jan ..because.. it involves a different knife form. Anyway .. I'll send it this way. 

.

I am a member of another forum that specializes in Queen City, Schatt & Morgan, & Queen in general. It is the site from which I gleaned the scissors & clippers.

.

It is unfortunate, the forum is Fb based. None the less .. I will include the "LINK". The name of the group is "Queen City & Schatt & Morgan knives". It's a "closed forum" ..but.. you'd be readily accepted.

.

When I mistakenly attempted to contact you through Fb .. I took a guess & contacted "Rome Patrick Rushing" who also hails from Vicksburg, MS. Obviously .. my bad !

.

Enjoy,

D ale
