I have been told that this is a very rare Boy Scout Knife that I have.

The dental spatula (A) on top isn't technically a knife, but it is my favorite tool. Took these locks apart in very short order without any help.

eKat that is a great story.

Thanks, FRUMY.

There are so many great cultural and natural history stories about Mammoth.
Kinda fun to write up extensions of them, sometimes.

Cool knives!

My favorite aunt brought me this from Oaxaca when I was about 13. You can
see why she was my fave.



I was taking Spanish then but the colloquialism on the blade had me a bit
stumped so I took it in to my Spanish teacher. He got all red in the face
and said, "Never you mind!"



"No te fijes en las culecas, fijate en las que estan poniendo"

More or less it means: "Don't bother with the young chicks, go for the ones that are putting out" LOL!!!!!!!

Small enough to leave permanently on my harness, big enough to be useful, opens easily with just one hand, cuts all the things I need it to cut quickly and cleanly.

Here's one I made about 15 years ago for a pretty extensive restoration job. I have a pretty complete set of European carving chisels, but this made my life easier.

NW Coast style crooked knife . Unlike the Eastern Crooked knives both edges are sharp, so you can carve in either direction depending on grain.


The steel is from an old Nicholson file.

Hey Nita,

unfortunately I don't know the history of those little gems. I remember seeing them on top of my Dad's dresser in a little bowl with other knick-knacks when I was a kid, but never asked about them. My Mom knew nothing other than to say that my Dad had had them for as long as she knew him. My Dad lived his entire early life in Ohio except for his service in the Navy in WWII (N.Atlantic and Mediterranean). That lady's leg knife looks like something a sailor would have.

Say Lorenzo that reminded me of when we would take about a 3&1/2 nail and pound it flat with a hammer, curve it a little and then scrape it on the sidewalk into a sort of sharp blade. Oh yeah and clothes pin matchguns.

Not mine.



Not these either, we were too impatient.



anita514:

What material is on the handle of your knife?
