Help identiry this relic knife

Started this discussion. Last reply by Syd Carr Oct 1, 2016. 5 Replies

This knife was found buried on the side of a hill at the site of an elementary school in Big Sur, CA; it was given to me by the principal because he knew that I collected knives. It obviously was…Continue

A new acquisition. I collect Camillus-made Buck 300 series knives, and though I already have a CC-made 317, (the equivalent to this knife), I thought it would be nice to have both the Buck and…Continue

"Yet another correction, but I did manage to identify the knife and it's manufacture date; apparently it's a LB11 with BSA# 1068 from 1989, but unfortunately it is handled in Jigged Delrin. Oh well, at least it's an…"

Thrift Store Treasure

Just found this Camillus 5" Boy Scouts Of America Folding Hunter, jigged bone handles, single bolster, BSA shield & inscription, and oh, did I mention the oh-so-cool secondary serrated blade? This has separate locks for each blade, something I have never seen before. I've been watching this knife at a local thrift store for months, hoping no one would buy it out from under me, fortunately it was priced so high no one snagged it, so I took a chance and waited for a sale. Well, today they had…See More

I'm back.....kinda

Posted on October 25, 2018 at 0:36 20 Comments

Well, I've not been that active in collecting knives the past year, but having had two major surgeries and concentrating on trying to pay off the knives I had purchased previous to a year ago has kept me otherwise occupied; until today. Having been pretty much confined to home most of the year got the best of me today, I was feeling good, and was done with the major event I put on in Big Sur annually so I decided I needed to get out of the house and me being me I chose to go on a thrift…

Spring 2018 Update

Posted on April 25, 2018 at 17:30 6 Comments

    Finally recovering  a bit from cervical spinal fusion surgery, talk about steel, I now have a titanium plate/screws in my neck and am now getting ready for yet another surgery sometime in May, (rotator cuff repair), that one may require hardware too; sigh....

    Despite those distractions I have managed to obtain a knife or two that I will mention here. Just received this very nice Camillus-made Crossman 932A 3 3/4" closed wood-handled folder, (Ash handle I think?). I don't…

1990 Buck #314 Buckbone Trapper

Posted on November 16, 2017 at 15:04 6 Comments

Having recently endured a cervical vertebrectomy, (removal of discs and bone, replaced with bone grafts & SS plates leaving my spinal cord exposed until the grafts grow in), I wondered if the surgeon had cut out the part of me that addictively purchases collectible pocket knives? I got my answer today with the arrival of a 1990 Buck #314 Buckbone Trapper. My neck seems to be healing up well, but the urge to practice retail therapy remains. I already have a #312 Buckbone Mini Trapper from…
