Great story and knives, thanks for sharing them.
That to me is what collecting knives is all about; the stories behind them. For the past several years I have been attempting to assemble a book filled with stories of some of the knives I have acquired over the past sixty-odd years.With this forced recuperation on me I just might be able to finish it now.For me it is very hard to select just three of mine as there are so many that have a story to go along with them but I will try:
Vicman those are three treasures! Thank you for sharing them with us.
Nice knives and stories, I'm just a Joe Schmo with some modern stuff, nice that you guys have some history to your stuff which most of us never will
Here is one of my most prized knives and the story of how it came back to me. The Buck 112 is another.
So here are my other two most prized knives.This knife was given to me for my 8th birthday. We are from Scotland originally and immigrated to the US in 1975. I remember taking a trip over to Glasgow from the Town of Hamilton where we lived to a small shop. My older Brother had gotten a similar knife a few years before and I had been begging for one of my own. We would carry these when we would go and play in the woods by our house.William Rodgers hunting knife(Image removed from quote.)The Buck 112 that I got for my 13th birthday.20180206_144017 by SteveC, on Flickr
