Doug, I am new to this site but see that you have an expertise on Aurum etched Bowies. I just posted a discussion item about one and do not yet know how to "invite friends" or communicate. I hope this reaches you.
You are right about Schrade, much to learn about this fine company. I admire you sticking to the one collection and learning all about it. They were a fine company that made afordable cutlery. I have carried many and worn out a few. I sold quite a few years ago and now wish I had them. Still have some amd will get together and post a pic when time allows. I tend to pick up any knives that amuse me at the time thus not focusing enough on the makers. That is where I really enjoy iKC and all the knowlege that is here. I need to regroup and start to focus on a couple of makers/companies that stand out to me.
Welcome to iKC, Doug! With your interest in target shooting you should enjoy the iKC Arsenal group. We love to talk about and post pictures of our guns and shooting experiences. As host of the group I invite you to join. I look forward to seeing your posts in the group.
Also I am now running a contest to give away two knives. Here is the link.
