The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
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 recognize the frame, I have a CC-made Trapper with a similar shape & size, but this isn't exactly a Trapper? Neither is it a Jack, (or is it?). The master blade is a liner lock, and the other similarly-sized blade is serrated, (the main thing that attracted me to this knife). It fits in nicely with my small-but-growing collections of both vintage Camillus knives and folding knives of various makes with a serrated blade, (I just love serrated blades!). An interesting knife for sure, beefy, lightly used and factory sharp. Apparently made for Crossman, (of air rifle fame), sometime before Camillus went belly up in 2006. If anyone recognizes this knife or knows what frame it is please speak up, inquiring minds, (mine), want to know.
I also picked up a few sundry Buck 300 Series knives but haven't taken nice photos of those yet, I'll post photos here when I do.
In the meantime I'm going back to my "day job" as a volunteer community sound technician, and will be running sound for this weekend's Morro Bay Kite Festival. I play the music for the pro kite flyers who do synchronized kite flying demos to music on the beach here in Morro Bay. The event attracts professional kite flyers/competitors from across the nation and the world, and this will be my 6th year as sound technician. It is also the first major event I am doing after my recent surgery so it's going to be a real physical challenge for an old gimpy goat like me....pray I don't vapor lock!
