BUCK KNIVES. USA. "Vintage MODEL 110".
Made in 1989, with a Damascus blade and stag handle. No belt sheath but a very nice wooden display box included. Actual cardboard box a little creased. Mint, unused condition. £190 inc. UK p&p.
BUCK KNIVES. USA. "Custom Shop MODEL 112".
Vintage knife. please email for details.
CHRIS REEVE KNIVES. USA. "SEBENZA".
A nice example of this classic folder in the smaller size. This knife has been carried and used since it was originally bought but apart from the to be expected "snail trails" on the handle, is still in very good condition. The blade has been expertly resharpened by the owner and is razor sharp.
This is a very desirable package as it also comes with the CRK belt sheath and a "clip insert" for those who dislike a pocket clip but don't want an unsightly screw hole showing in the frame. Size: 4 inches closed.
Very good condition. £325 inc. UK p&p.
W.R.CASE & Sons. USA. " SLIMLINE TRAPPER -TONY BOSE '1999 YEAR KNIFE' ".
Not to be confused with the Tony Bose designs range of knives by Case, this is, in fact, the first year of the yearly Case/Bose Collaborations - which Tony personally oversees himself.
Having met Tony -arguably the World's best maker of Slipjoints - at the Blade Show, he was subsequently invited back to the Case factory, which resulted in Case then producing in 1999 the best knives ever to come out of that factory ! ( I know because I have owned Case Folders from "The Golden Age" and this surpasses them by far ! ). These folders are limited in number simply because of the high level of hand 'f&f' by a small group of the very best of Case employees, who were taught and supervised by Tony. The venture was such an outstanding success, that Case have gone on to produce a different pattern each year, again highly supervised by Tony - who actually makes the Prototype for Case to set up the tooling for production. This first model is still one of my favourite patterns of all the year knives and is of better quality than some Custom work I have seen over the years. Mint, unused condition. £425 inc. UK p&p
BUCK KNIVES. USA. "DUKE - Ltd. Ed."
Finger groove handle of genuine Buffalo Horn with Malachite inlays. This knife is stamped with Buck Custom Shop stamp. Made around 2011.
Complete with a 'distressed' black leather belt sheath.
Mint unused condition. £130 inc. UK p&p.
SALE PENDING GENE INGRAM. USA. "SODBUSTER".
A very well made folder by Gene, who is known for his extremely well made fixed blades. A while ago, Gene 'dipped his toe' into the world of folder making and as to be expected, he did not disappoint. He no longer offers folders in his current catalogue, so this has collector appeal but it is a great knife to have - well made and in D2 Tool steel with black micarta scales. Closed: 4-1/8". Complete with L/H belt sheath.
Very good condition. £350 inc. UK p&p
BUCK KNIVES. USA. "110 FOLDING HUNTER".
A classic knife from this renowned maker, this particular version was made in 1988 (?), commemorating the 25th Anniversary of Folding Hunter. A lovely etch on the blade, with an up grade wooden handle and n/silver bolsters ( one of the front bolsters have a small area of tarnish ). A very nice addition to a Collection or a great using knife that stands apart from the herd. (please note, I have inadvertently photographed the incorrect box).
Nr. Mint condition. £95 inc. UK p&p
SOLD J. E MADE. " CLIP POINT SLIPJOINT".
Discontinued -circa 2017. Titanium & S35VN. Perfect, legal pocket carry.
Mint, unused cond. £225 inc. UK p&p
SOLD AL MAR. USA. "S.E.R.E.".
This is a particularly nice example of this vintage knife from Al Mar - when Al Mar was still alive and running the Company. Designed in the 1980's with Col. Nick Rowe, who used his experience as an escaped POW in Vietnam, to design a knife that would fufil the needs of the S.E.R.E.
(Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) School he formed for the US Army Special Forces. This folder design is the result - built like a "tank" not to let you down.
Now a great Collector piece, it's still more than capable as a user. This particular knife is the largest of the sizes that Al Mar offered and has the original belt sheath, complete with sharpening stone.
Size:6 inches closed ! Excellent cond. £275 inc. UK p&p.
AJAX. FRANCE. "GENTLEMAN'S FOLDER".
A super little folder that will be a perfect "every day carry" knife that won't have non- knife lovers running for the hills! Showing excellent workmanship, with a main blade, pen blade and scissors, set off by what appears to be Cow Horn scales. Closed: 2.8". Main blade:2". The main blade shows signs of light use but is still full.
Very good condition. £55 inc. UK p&p
SOLD RODGERS.SHEFFIELD. "MULTI BLADE - SCOUT KNIFE".
Set against the background of a catalgue of it's biggest rival, this lovely folder may have possibly been touched by the hand of Stan Shaw ? It certainly has the fileworked spine that is so typical of Stan's own work. I would hazard a guess and say this folder dates from the 1970's with it's rich maroon jigged bone. Closed:3-5/8". Blade:2-3/4".
Mint, unused condition.
M. SALANDA. USA. "DOGLEG".
A lovely custom knife that is priced to be used !
please email for details. PRICE REDUCTION due to change in sellers circumstances. £250 inc UK p&p - THIS REALLY IS A BARGAIN !
BOKER. GERMANY. "Leo-Damast 111".
An extremely well made "liner-lock" folder from Boker, completely handmade in the Boker manufactory in Soligen. The damascus is particularly interesting as it is forged out of a barrel of the German Leopard Battle Tank ! Blade: 10cm. Oal: 23cm. I believe this knife is now discontinued. Complete with box & papers.
Mint, unused condition. £395 inc. UK p&p
SOLD VICTORINOX. "MAUSER".
A very good example of this now discontinued and much sought after folder. The spearpoint blade shows signs of use but the other two blades remain unused ( the saw still has it's guard which is often missing in these knives ). Blade: 3-1/4 inches. Closed length: 4.25"
Very good cond. overall.
CHRIS REEVE KNIVES. USA. "Snakewood SEBENZA".
Please email for details and price. Mint, unused condition.
AL MAR KNIVES. "Vintage Collection".
Please email for details and prices. All knives mint & unused.
PACIFIC CUTLERY. USA. "BARRY WOOD FOLDER".
A commercial version of Custom Knifemaker Barry Wood's 'Rotary' folder that was quite revolutionaqry in the 1970's and 1980's. Made by the now defunct Pacific Cutlery, which was known for it's extremely high quality knives, this folder is still a perfectly usable working knife or collectable - which will have the uninitiated scratching their heads wondering how to open it !
Mint condition with paperwork but no box. £125 inc. UK p&p
SOLD CHRIS REEVE. USA. SEBENZA - "Micarta Inlays".
Mint & unused, boxed with papers.
Large size. £550 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD COLD STEEL. USA. "Vintage CLIP MATE".
This knife is from my own collection and is a rare knife in this condition.
Made in the late 1980's this Lockback folder was an example of newly formed Cold Steel's approach to making knives - make them sharper and better than anything else at the same price. Owner Lynn C. Thompson made some 'wild claims' about his knives but his knives always backed them up and I have a great deal of respect for his San Mai and Carbon V (5) steel. This particular folder is the large size and complete with everything, making it a great Collector piece - or a wonderful user.
Closed: 4-1/2" with a 3-1/2" San Mai laminated s/steel blade.
Mint, unused condition. RARE ! £175 inc. UK p&p.
BRIAN TIGHE. CANADA. "Tactical Folder".
Superb quality. details to follow. £350 inc. UK p&p
SOLD COLD STEEL. USA. "CLASSIC HUNTER".
If, like me, you are a lover of Ol' Timey folders that take you back to the days when 'thumb studs' and 'Flippers' were figments of the imagination and all an Outdoorsman needed in his pocket was a carbon steel two blade folder, then this is the knife for you. Long discontinued and made from Cold Steel's famous 'Carbon V' steel ( also no longer produced ) this Classic Two Blade Hunter is a big knife and as such comes with it's own optional belt sheath. Closed length is 5-1/4" and the blades are 4-1/8". With nickel silver bolsters and imitation black jigged bone, this is a striking looking knife. Made in the USA and with a lovely fit & finish. All complete with box, etc.
Mint, unused cond.
TIM BERNARD "ATELIER NEVE".
please emails for details.
ERIC DEPEYRE. FRANCE."LE GONE".
When I saw this knife on the table of Artisan Coutelier, Eric Depeyre from Lyon, I knew I had to buy it. The quality, style and gorgeous Snakewood scales just jumped out at me. Although Eric speak little English and, to my shame, I speak no French we both understood each other. Eric has fitted a "notch lock" to this folder which, technically, classes it as 'non-locking' but the tension of the back spring on the notch (sitting in the blade) makes it harder to close accidentally. The blade is stainless although I do not know what steel. Blade: 90mm. Closed 110mm. With black leather slip pouch.
BRAND NEW from Maker. SALE PRICE: £245 inc. UK p&p
SOLD PEPE JALOMO. USA. "LANNY'S CLIP".
A chance to buy an example of a 'Lanny's Clip' ( which is fast becoming a 'classic' Tony Bose design ) by one of the very best 'up & coming' folder makers in the USA, Pepe Jalomo. Mentored by World Class Maker, Enrique Pena, the quality of this knife shines through !
Superb fit & finish, with a nice solid "walk & talk" and complete with a 'half stop' safety feature which I always like on a non-locking folder. Blade: 3" Oal: 6 7/8". Stainless bolsters and shield, with black 'paper' micarta scales. Comes with brown leather slip case by maker.
Whoever buys this knife will not be disappointed ! Commission sale.
ALL SOLD. W.R.CASE & SONS. USA. "TONY BOSE Collaborations".
In 1999, Case approached Tony Bose to work together on designing knives. The result was Case making knives of the very highest standard under Tony's supervision and producing a Case/Bose Year Knife in limited numbers ( a different pattern is produced for each following year ). These knives are virtually 'Custom' quality as Tony is heavily involved in the process and they sell out pretty much immediately !
Mint, unused condition.
GREG LIGHTFOOT. CANADA. "MAX-VELOCITY Liner lock".
A chance to acquire a knife from one of the 'founding members' of the Tactical Folder genre. Superb workmanship and as mint as the day it left Greg's workshop. All the 'boxes ticked' with double thumb stud, bead blasted bolsters and liners, G10 handle and titanium pocket clip. Stainless steel (possibly BG42) 3.25" blade and closed length of 4.25". Feels very light in the hand with a rock solid lock-up.
Mint cond. with zip case. £475 inc. UK p&p
SOLD1515 - THEIRS. Made the the French Artisian, Manu Laplace, this gorgeous LINER LOCK folder is a joy to handle. Manu's work is very highly prized in France and not often seen over here in the UK.
Having met Manu (at the French Game Fair) I can tell you, his work sells very quick! This particular model has a polished bone handle, with a s/steel 'butt cap'. The s/steel spacer (on the spine) has some very nice engraving in a leaf pattern, and a mosaic pin in the bone also adds a touch of class. I believe that Manu uses 12c27 steel for his blades, which is 3 1/4" long. Closed length is 4 3/4".
ANDRE THORBURN "MODEL L3" please email for details. £325 inc. UK p&p
SOLD AL MAR "SERE" Attack 1. This now discontinued version is the smallest of the three models Al Mar produced in the 1980's (3" blade - 3 3/4" closed). Al Mar, who was Gerber's Head Designer before starting his own company in 1979, produced superb knives and this model was initiated with Col. Nick Rowe, of the Spec.Ops Command School. This knife is a little piece of knife history. Mint, unused cond.
SOLD Jim Dunlap - LANNY'S CLIP. Another superb example of Jim's craftmanship ! I recently asked Jim to make a Lanny's Clip model for a good friend of mine. He was so taken with the design ( he had to ask Tony Bose for the pattern as it is Tony's design ) that he wanted to make more. This particular version has the much desired ( and sadly discontinued ) Westinhouse Ivory micarta. The 3" blade is made of premium CPM154 s/steel and non-locking, making it perfect for daily carry. Closed 4". As I predicted, Jim's prices are starting to rise as his work becomes more and more in demand but his knives are still extremely good value for money.
Jim Dunlap. Semi-Skinner model. At the request of one of my customers for a non-locking Semi-Skinner folder, I approached Jim with the idea and he came up with the goods! ( I was so taken with the concept that I ordered four ). Jim has made these in a very practical size - not too small or too big. Closed length 4 1/8" with a 3 1/4" blade ( 3" cutting edge ). I can see these being very useful for either Camping or Hunting as the thin blade of premium CPM154 stainless steel cuts like a demon !! Jim has incorporated "half-stops" in the opening/closing action as a safety feature. I am very pleased how these have turned out. Great using knife! New from maker.
Westinghouse Ivory Micarta - SOLD
Black G 10 - SOLD
Orange G 10 - SOLD
SOLD CASE/TONY BOSE. Every year Case release, in co-operation with Tony Bose ( without question, the World's No1 multi-blade knifemaker ), a limited run of knives of an original Tony Bose knife pattern. These knives are made by the very best of Case's workforce under Tony's supervision and are far superior to Case's standard range of knives - and even rival Custom Made knives in some instances ! This particular model is the Tribal Spear ( Tony's version is called the Zulu ) and is in near mint condition, showing only some handing marks on the bolsters and slight signs of sharpening. Premium 154cm stainless steel ( the same steel as Tony uses on his own knives ) and Chestnut jigged bone handle, with Tony's trademark "keyhole shield", make for a stunning combination. Oal 7" with a 3" blade makes this a "legal carry" knife. As Tony's knives are almost impossible to get hold of, this is the next best thing. Pre-owned.
SOLD Gerber Legendary Blades. A real find ! This is one of the original Paul folders from the late 1970's - not to be confused with the second re-issue in the 1990's or the current version by Lone Wolf Knives. This knife, designed by Paul Poehlmann, an Aero-Space engineer, was groundbreaking at the time and was a big seller until production was discontinued due to excessive costs in producing the button lock, which locks up solid like a bank vault !
Absolutely mint condition and complete with the very hard to find sheath.
