Toothpicks and relatives
« on: April 14, 2014, 05:37:57 PM »
I do not have any fancy toothpick knives but I love their shape.
The mini-toothpick is my minimalistic knife; bigger blade and shape than the too small for me peanut.



From the top: RR, RR, Kissing Crane, Buck, Buck, RR
The yellow Buck mini is the only one I use. I love its size and capabilities. You get a lot of blade for a tiny size. It's plastic (the other knives shown are bone and stag) and its scales were falling off when I got it (got a refund). I have some other toothpicks too, not shown here, but you get the idea on their looks.



The jigged scaled RR looks very sexy.


Other options: Similarly shaped blades (traditional European and (nowdays) African styled knives)





The proper toothpicks tend to have a thin body, as well as a slim, thin blade.

Great collection. I allways wanted toothpick knife, but never found myself making an order. Maybe someday. What are the specs on those smaller ones?

~6cm blades, made by the same factory, good finish, 440A steel on the RR,  420J2 for the buck, both perfectly adequate. No blade play, good walk and talk, cheap (The price will depend on the scales.)... The RRs are flat ground.
Buy any one.

You should be able to get them to Finland for $15 to $20, depending on the model. Or, cheaper if you win an auction. I have not bought any in some years.. They used to be even cheaper, until the US shipping costs went up.

One more knife added to my want list. That is not bad prize for it.

I have no experience on RR's. Heard of it couple of times. How good are they?

They are pretty good. Not always perfect but definitely value for money. There fancier models cost more but tend to be even better. Also try Colt, made by the same factory but with better finish.



Have a read through this if you want to see more models and read more opinions:

I like the fact that you get a nicely long blade in a small package.

Yes. This is true. Knife itself loses totally in hand, but blade is long, and nice to use. I like to use it for food cutting.  Like some fruits.

Great knives dks! I have accumulated a few of them over the years. I particularly like the mini toothpicks as I like to be able to carry a knife comfortably in my pocket and with larger knives that cannot be done.
Here are three large older ones and a group of three mini toothpicks.I especially like the one(unmarked)with the,"end of days" handles. For those not familiar with the term;supposedly when the makers got finished making all the different colored celluloid handles they would throw any remaining celluloid into a melting pot(at the end of the day)and that would be the result.I think this tale is just that and not really based in fact.These handles look like they were planned that way in advance.
The first large toothpick is a Hibbard,Spencer,& Bartlett which was likely made by KA-BAR or Union Cutlery Co(their early stamp).It is a bit fancy in that it has jimped liners(decoration similar to filework on blades).
The second is a Union Cutlery Co. probably made just after WWI.
The last is a Colonial Knife Co. with a curved arch stamping indicating it was made just after WWI.

Nice Winchester.

Automatic toothpicks...  Nice! I think there is a way, using a matchstick to make a toothpick into an easy opening/wave tyoe of knife, but i have never seen an automativ one before.

Mini toothpicks have been my to go knives for years.

Here are a couple really nice ones by J.Mongin.Handles are one piece of blonde horn(goat maybe?)polished with a ring lock affixed. Blades are highly polished.
