This is a knife my Dad made "at work" sometime in the mid to late 70's. He worked in a Maintenance/Electrical department it a tire factory at the time. I worked there for a short time at a "banbury mixer", and every 4 hours I got 15 minutes to hit the break room. Dad was always there drinking coffee when I arrived, and was there drinking coffee when I left. So he had plenty of down time to work on the knife I'd say. LOL!
It is hanging in my living room in a box made by and old friend, maybe 30 years ago or so. It will absolutely shave the hair from your arm.
A few Barlow knives - tope to bottom - A Csse XX; 2 Schrade; a Boker; an Imperial; and a generic labeled Made in U.S.A. The Imperial was a gift from a New Holland implement dealer back in the 60's - I carried it on the farm as a kid.

Good Friday Morning to all @Pig Ninja - Very nice Western knife. I have never seen that style of blade in a Western before! - Like the arrow heads - good stuff.
@Sambane - Thank you, Sir! - Very nice collection of the Swiss Victorinox family as well. I have to say that I have never seen that Biltong Knife before, either. That is very cool. Don't see too much genuine biltong around these parts. I had some in Canada about 20 + years ago. Pretty tasty - better than jerky I remember thinking at the time! Couldn't find it then in the U.S.
Might need to dig out my Swiss Army Victorinox clan one of these days. . . .
Benchmade Proper slip joint - fun little every day pocket knife.
I recently bought a Spyderco Manix2 that I posted earlier in this thread. I love the knife but wasn’t to impressed with the plastic cage that holds the ball bearing lock and guides the spring.
When I was watching U-tube reviews on the knife some video’s came up where a company made this part out of titanium that came in different colors.
Online I went and ordered one in blue, the original was black. It came in today’s mail, I installed it per one of the excellent U-tube videos I watched. Went off without a hitch! Here are a few pics.
The original black plastic and the new blue titanium.
