The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
So I really like older pocketknives such as:
They tended to confuse me early, when I was even "dumber" than I am now. They confused me because when they are closed they look so much alike. The blades stick so far above the handle on all of them. Now I can mostly tell them apart.
When they are open, the blades confused me because I didn't understand the differences in blade styles. Now I mostly do.
With the help of a lot of research books that have pictures (!!!) I have increased my knowledge a bit.
Anyway, I think part of why I like these is the same reason I like Barlows.
They are large, working man's knives. Sailors, farmers, hunters, soldiers.
Some more of these types of knives will be in the next post.
