I do like your Queen City, it just looks like a labor’s pocket carry in the ‘60s

David, a good pairing of blade types. 

The Angus, everytime, I see, reminds me of the Bull we had on the farm I worked.  The only difference was he had a 6” nose ring, in which we would attach a 5’ length if chain, that weighed 12# per foot.   Otherwise he would break the backs of the yearling cows just because. 

When the bull first arrived, the first season he only needed a 3’ chain😜. But he was determined and active.  He required longer chain by season 3.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Off the top of my head I'm thinking 1940-1946. Since they have steel liners they are probably war time knives.   :think:    :D

Thank you David for the insight about steel liners.

Yes, during WWII, brass was used for munitions, and steel still was in short supply.

I begin observing knives being used by adults around me when about 7 at the earliest. That would be 1960.
Lots of equal end jacks, the oldsters my Grandfathers age used to cut ends off their cigars.  Carpenters working with my dad always had two blade Barlows and small blades for sharpening pencils, etc

My dad carried a Muskrat pattern as I knew he always had a sharp blade in his one knife.

But the older guys hanging out with gramps awl had the same style Jack knife. As I have learn were called equal end style or Tobacco Knife.  So when got my first I snuck and bought a trapper, two blades same length, long handle, but different tips with purpose supporting muskrat trapping and rabbit cleaning venture for the fur. Still have that knife😜

My gosh, I rambled on, like a old guy🙄

I agree with David, Steve, and Gareth. Ramble on all you want, LC  :tu:

Besides, it is interesting reading about your recollections. As for me, I don't remember my maternal grandfather or my uncle carrying a pocket knife. Both were glass men, and I only remember them carrying utility knives. However, my father, who was an electrician (retired now), always carried an Uncle Henry Stockman and a whetstone in his pocket.

Beautiful, sleek, stylish knife Gareth, and a very nice photo worthy of being a calendar pinup👍

Thank you guys for the kind words of support.

I mentioned my first knife, a Trapper, made by Sabre Japan…
 

The smaller knife was my Grandpa’s mom’s dad) work knife at the paper mill.  I received this after his passing in ‘71😔

His at home pocket carry was a equal ended clip point, and still remember him skinning the Bullheads we would catch when the bluegills were not biting.   My older cousin received that knife.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Thank you, I wish I could find my small pen knife and my CubScout knife, those went missing from my old room and thought my brothers took possession  since we awl shared a room until I left for tech school.

But, then awl my baseball cards and comic books went missing too! Per younger sister, dad cleaned my room and burned them when I did not return home after i graduated.  It must have been ugly as non of my siblings ventured far from home as they grew up.
My mom still lives in our home at 90.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Ramble on LC all you want.  Part of my journey with these knives are all the tales that go along with them.  While I have none to share myself as I didn't know either granddad, or dad, I love hearing of knives passing down thru time. 

When I get a new to me knife I like to imagine the person who went to the store to buy it new.  What was this knifes life and did it pass many hands before mine.  Its the main draw for buying older knives.  Its also what keeps me from buying too many new knives. 

I don't have history with any of my knives but I do enjoy reading about yours and others.
