DELBERT COVER replied to Scott King's discussion If you were to join a knife association....?
"At my age joining any club is not going to do me much good.  I have noticed more each year that the major knife collecting is with newer knives and my collection of Cattaraugus and Jack Knife Ben knives only involves about 5 % of the members."

DELBERT COVER commented on Scott King's blog post Now that is way too controversial to talk about here!
"The only time I have seen blood pressures go up is when I say I don't collect any of the newer knives. Some get a little huffy and say they can't afford to but the old real collectable knives."

Hello Delbert- thought I'd stop by to say "Hi." Hope you are doing well! Going to any knife shows soon? I'm probably headed over to Dalton, Ga in a month or so to catch what used to be the NKCA show...not quite sure what it is now, but it's still gonna happen.

No Delebert. Out of the couple hundred knives I have the only ones I will actually cut something with is 1) a Great Eastern stag toenail and my Mantis Jyro.

I did order me a full time everyday carry last week. It is a Strider PT- CC


It should come in on Monday. It is about 4 inches closed. My is a plain blade without the tiger stripes. My plan is to carry it everyday, except when I'm flying.

Delbert- I started a discussion on this topic (see my last post here on your wall) in the Elephant Toenail Collectors Group here at iKC. Let's pic up the discussion on this there, plus I want to see what the others answer is.

Delbert- I can only speculate about what affect "new" jumbos will have on old ones. My opinion is it will help, long tern. Short term- no affect at all.

Long term, folks buying the affordable new ones could eventually decide to get an old one. These folks might have never really thought 'bout buying a jumbo before...and as you know once you get hooked- katy bar the door.

Short term- it is two different buyers. The new ones will have to be somewhat affordable, probably under $500. And as you know an old one can't be gotten for that, so I don't see any competition between the two. Heck, the old junker jumbos sell for between $500 and $1000. The really good ones are $3500 to $6000 today.

I'd love to see a "new" old knife. Ka-Bar is now making a replica of its Union Razor and I don't believe that has hurt the old authentic ones...don't know that it has helped the old ones either, for that matter. Case makes the "Case Family" knives and don't see any affect on the old ones as a result either.

Rare knives will stand on their own, as you know.

Hi Delbert,
I don't know if you remember me, but I bought a super nice H. Boker & Co.'s Improved Cutlery jumbo jack from you off ebay a year or two ago. It's a great knife that I still have. Thanks again for an honest, old knife.
Roger Russell
