    grand pa's blade

    this was supposedly my grandfathers who passed when i was still making boom boom in my diapers , when my grandmother passed my mother uncovered it after my uncles ransacked the house , guess they missed it , she must have tucked it away and it sat ever since

    its a old Western with what appears to be a handmade sheath , i found the chart that dates the markings , it was produced between 1935 and 1950 , the old Western knives were coded by the rings on the handle , the rings tell the story of the knife , a fella on another forum decoded mine and said it has actual Stag grip not the fake stuff that they even used as far back as then , the fact they were still offering real Stag must mean it may mark the transition?

    blade and point are free of chips , razor sharp , pretty much a safe queen i only pull out to oil from time to time , hands down my favorite blade in the collection even though these were made and marketed towards the lower end of the time ,and sold to those that would use it as a working tool they were very well made , but because they were a tool they were abused and often in poor condition , not rare but uncommon in this condition for the age

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Interesting! I have a knife that is virtually the same as yours complete with Stag handle, made by Premier which I bought for myself 48 years ago. It was sold as a Moose skinning knife which I put to good use several times. Premier knives started in New York in 1922 but also opened a distributorship in Toronto Canadaicon from where they continue to do business mostly in Canada.
