  1. I thought you may like to see some more of j rodgers knives
  2. Thanks for that .will do.
  3. Hi .I have another leather cutting knife with screwed handles not sure how old that one is.here are 2 photos, thanks.
  4. Hi there pretty sure this is a Joseph rodgers knife cutlers to their majesties.looks like a prunner with some sort of cutters as well .I think the blade is quite worn because all I can see on the blade is rodgers &sons with a small piece of crown showing and an R..what age do you think it is and what the knife was used for ? .I would be greatfull for any help.thanks in advance.
  5. Yes .i think it is .sorry for the very late reply.i have just recently brought 2 more Richard knives which are only 50-60.mm in length.both are of the same design but I believe the s/s version is newer than the other.single blade and what appears to be a pen . The false M.O.P. knife has a pen in it if that's what it is.the S/S version unscrews whilst the M.O.P.one doesn't. So.my question is what is it supposed to be pen or scribe.?.thanks for looking.
  6. I've been looking on the net and there's a vintage taylor eye witness blade with a handle which is exactly the same.so if the one I have is antique the you are more than likely correct.
  7. Yes they did on folding knives and fixed blade knives.but just wondered if screws date back to that time that it could be so they could change blades if they were damaged.?
  8. Thanks so much for your reply .you guys are the best..cheers.
  9. Just acquired M. Hunter & son knife .above the name on the blade is what appears to be a bugle .been trying to find a date on it but can't find a date for when the bugle was used.any info would be much appreciated
  10. No joy there.mmmmmmm. what now ?
  11. A little while ago I bought this folder at a booty . Tried but can't find any info on it .think it's from sheffield but not to sure.It has G. FARMER on one side of the tang and hand forged on the other side.any help would be great.
  12. Yes you are right .paid £20 for it but alas no sheath just a cheap looking camouflage machete type scabbard..thanks for the info.boginspro.
  13. Hi there. Haven't been on this site for a while as I haven't been buying lately. Ime in the need of your help again in the hope that someone could help dating this divers knife.There are no markings on the handle but it does have john nowill &sons sheffield England etched on the blade.The blade is S/S as it is magnetic, I have seen some made of titanium with a lanyard hole.as you can see this one hasn't and it has also a yellow pommel. I assume it's not that old but if anyone can put a date on it that would be great.thanks
  14. Thanks for the info.lovely little pen knives aren't they.
  15. Hi there.no info on the knife wostenholm mmmmm.just wondered if some learned member out there has any info on this knife.with the hook and blade closed it measures 42mm.
