I think that its they don't beak any nails opening them, and they think it cute. That it also cuts like the dickens helps.
You can order older girls from Ebay?!
Here are my 3 Christy knives.The top one was given to me around 1959.-1960I just bought the bottom one last year
I just ordered one today. I didn't know about them. Thank you all for posting information about this knife.
Great pics, VMAN Excited to get mine
go for the brass Mariner!!
The brass Mariner is cool looking!
I followed Christy knife on Instagram and they asked me where I heard about them, I told them here at MTO and I sent them a link to this thread Then they followed me back
That would be soooooo cool if Hal posted here!!
The main problem with Christy is, most people don't know they exist. They are an unknown gem in the world of pocket knives, where everyone knows the big names of Spyderco and Swiss Army knives, but Christy knives are like the stranger that hasn't even got to town yet. I do know that everyone who sees mine, immediately asks 'what the heck is that?' and they are very interested in it. They need more visibility or publicity. Put one in a movie or TV show and Hal will be swamped with orders!
....and for the collector with deeper pockets https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Christy-Pocket-Knife-Sliding-Blade-24kt-Gold-Plated-Floral-Carved-Rare-1940s-USA/224281151393?hash=item343832c7a1:g:9KEAAOSwM9tf2h6i
When I read this, I thought it might be in the 4-digit area. It doesn't seem that expensive. With some care from a jeweler and a new blade, it'll probably increase that value a lot.
I received more than a couple of these in the mail yesterday Oh the power of MTO and suggestion
