The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
The local hardware store had their annual sale this weekend, I didn't go to buy a knife, because usually I can get better prices online, but today was different. I found a Bear & Son #753 fixed blade which was priced at $27.99, (7-1/8" total length with 3-1/8" blade), but the sales guy said they have had that particular knife in the showcase for years and it's price hadn't been updated. So, with 20% off I ended up getting it for $22.39. Not bad for a USA knife of any kind. Now I'm not a…Continue

If I didn't mention it before my daughter was born in 1993, and my grandson Michael was born in 2014. Therefore I collect knives made in those years, it's kinda like popcorn, once you start you can't stop. It's the main reason I collect knives in the first place, to pass them down like my dad did for me.
The newest 2014 arrivals are pictured below, a 2014 Buck #501, and a 2014 Case #10254 Large Trapper in smooth Black Canvas Laminate, which I like very much by the way. I already have…Continue

I found this knife in a free box on the side of the road a couple of weeks ago, and didn't realize what it was until I looked it up online. I just thought it would be a cool knife for in my tool box.
I have decided to try and restore it as best as I can. Here are some pics of it before any work, and after scrubbing rust off of the blade this morning.
I have a lot more work to do, but it's a begining....…Continue
I have two other knives on the way, but this came in first so I'll share it first. This comes from a Facebook Camillus Collectors group member who lives in New York, and knows one of the former managers of Camillus, who now has a knife shop near the Camillus Museum. These Remington Bullet Knives were found in a box just prior to the auction, and his friend managed to grab the box among other things, including the already to install parts for these knives, (but without the engraving). He is…Continue
I know that national chaos stops many things, but it doesn't stop a knifeaholic, at least not this one! In the mail box today, a Camillus Medium Stockman, (3.25" closed), with a box, (possibly generic), and appearing to be unused and NIB. Not a Buck, but I am bidding on a 310 Whittler at this moment, which I hope to win in a few days. Neither the box, the knife or seller's description mention or show a model number. However, every standard of expected quality of a NIB knife are there.…Continue

These two knives are similar and are likely made in the same factory. They are possibly made by Empire. Timeframe may be 1910. The size of the knife pulls differ slightly.
