I had this a while, since a third cousin of mine passed away. He didn't have much and I was asked to help move his stuff out of the retirement home when he died. This was kind of the only thing worth keeping. An old KutMaster with a blade broken off. It was almost a ball of rust, but I spent a few hours today getting it back to a useful condition. Made a small utility blade from the broken blade, cleaned/polished up the other blades, and cleaned/polished the handles/bolsters/and liners.
My family is rather small, so I was closer than most would be with a third cousin. Don't have any first cousins. This was the only thing I have to remember him by, as there wasn't much he originally had in his retirement apartment. He did have his old pocket knife, but it had been thrown in a toolbag for a decade with no oil on it, along with an assortment of dollar-store screw drivers and China socket set. :(

I figured he might appreciate this if he were around to see it.

Thank you very much, gentlemen! :cheers:

It always saddens me to go through people's stuff, when they have passed away. I'm quite sentimental and do try to find mementos to remember them by. A good pocket knife is just one of the best things for that purpose.  :)

My cousin's KutMaster will see pocket time, once again, soon. :cheers:

 :like:  Especially the Kutmaster's bone. I'm a big fan of the 301.   I have a Camillus made 303, but not even a Buck made user 301 (I do have a 1992 301 but it was the 1993 Christmas knife for a local quarry (who was bought out last year and changed names), and is like-new, so I don't dare carry it).  Thinking I'll get one in wood.

Got this BRK Bush Seax in A2 steel ordered. Its kind of a departure from my normal taste in a knife. But for some reason this knife caught my attention several years ago and I've been eye balling it ever since. This particular knife has been on my radar for a while and finally decicded to buy it and try it out. Sellers pics.
