Awesome pictures! I really like the older horn and stag handled SAKS! They are getting difficult to find.

Cheers!

Always such excellent examples, jnoxyd!  :tu:

Is this Champion black scissor springed? Looks c. '73/74 to me.

I got it pretty recently. I spotted it at the top of the thread and was pretty sure it was the one I picked up. Had to dig it up to double check!  Markings were pretty distinct. It's a well-travelled knife by now...I gotta wonder where else it's been!

You're welcome and thanks for confirmation and the additional pics to enjoy!   :hatsoff:  It's good practice to be able to date a knife with the tools closed and from a single shot like that.  :cheers:

Well, I finally came across one of my holy grail SAK’s and I couldn’t be happier! I was always getting outbid on the horn SAKs, but Sunday everything just clicked right!

By a pure strike of luck this beauty found it's path to me. 3 days of sanding and small repairs, and the oiling still ongoing.
 The scissor gave me most of the headackes but i made them work again, and it's a pleasure to use it.
The horn scales are my first and i have to admit it was a little trial and error and i did made some mistakes during sanding/buffing
