The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Just got my second vaccine shot so gave myself permission to go on a binge. These arrived today: US made Schrade Old Timer #50T with very nice sawcut Delrin handles and original sheath, (3 3/4" closed), the sawcut handles are what attracted me, have never seen it on a lockblade. Also received a really nice Colonial lockblade, (do not know the model number), also with sawcut Delrin, SS blade, (4" closed), with original sheath. Bought this one because it is the first Colonial lockblade I have ever seen, and this one is barely used, this will be in my EDC rotation. Buck #302, sawcut Delrin also, (3 7/8" closed), because I already have every #300 Series model ever made other than a #302, so this completes the collection. I started collecting the Camillus-made versions from 1967 to 1986, so that is why I didn't already have one, but now I am wondering why I didn't. This is actually a splendid pocket knife and will also go into my rotation, in fact it is in my pocket right now. On another note, when I went out to the mail box to retrieve these this morning, I learned my next door neighbor is positive for Covid, and getting sicker every hour. Now I am VERY glad I got my vaccinations, this is a little too close for comfort, (not to mention the three acquaintances of mine who died from Covid). I guess there are rewards for being old, I got my vaccine before a lot of other people, (btw: no bad side effects at all). That's all for now, stay tuned, there WILL be more. Cheers.
