Help identiry this relic knife

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

Craftsman/Sears 95417 Stockman

I have been on a Craftsman jag lately, and wanted to get one of their clones of the Buck #303 Cadet, both being made by Camillus. This one is in good condition, just a few use scratches. Not sure of the kind of wood on the handles, but it is a hardwood. I compared it to a Camillus-made '72-'86 #303 Cadet. See any similarities? To me it's obvious, but I'll soon do a family photo of the few Craftsmans I have, in both Schrade and Camillus versions.…See More

Finally a Buck Bone Toothpick and a Buck 300 Series SFO family portrait.

     Finally!! I've been looking for a Buck Bone version of this particular Buck SFO for years, and I was finally able to find and get one. The #333 California Toothpick in Genuine Jigged Bone handles, (Buck Bone). I found one a couple of years ago but couldn't afford it, so I just satisfied myself with the Stagalon version. After that I don't remember seeing a Buck Bone version for sale until just recently. Then all of a sudden this version is all over the place, so if you want one now is the…See More

A Very Cool Colonial Stockman

Here is a very nice, seemingly brand new Colonial Stockman that I snagged on the bay. It looked interesting in the photos, so I decided to go ahead and bid. Surprisingly no one else bid on it, mine was the only bid so I got it for what I consider a very good price. When it arrived I was happily surprised at it's size, (4" closed), and it's pristine condition, it looks like it was never used at all, with nary a scratch on any blade or handles. The blades are tight as can be with no wiggle and…See More

"Here is a comparison photo between a #112 Clip Point, (in this case a 1972-1986 version with no nail nick), and my new #112 Drop Point. I also weighed them just to see if they weighed the same. They didn't, the older one came in at 6.5 oz while…"

Michael's Knife

Nothing fancy or special, but it was made in 2014 which was the year my grandson Michael was born. Been watching for awhile but finally a 2014 came up for sale. I have a knife for each kid in my life made the year of their birth, they will of course get them one day but I'm keeping them for awhile so I can carry and use them. To me the most precious knife I own is the fixed blade Kinfolks K380 my dad bought on his 18th birthday in 1926, he used it a lot before he gave it to me, and it having…See More

"Syd, I'm with you on both counts.  Killing for killing's sake is simply wrong.  And I'm a 112 fan myself -- I like the 110, but it's too popular to feel special.  Granted, the 110 has been around ALL my life,…"

"First off, an Elephant's Toe by Case is a cool knife to be sure, but unless it was found in Abe Lincoln's pocket when he died it very likely is not  a realistic price, it's a price that an "expert" wants to get for it.…"
