"I received the knives and they're absolutely incredible---I've been buying customs and high-end productions for enough years that I'm not easily impressed anymore and I just about can't put these things down. Thank you very, very much and please pass my compliments along next time you talk to Andy." - Warren H.

"I suppose every one must have reflected how primeval and how poetical are the things that one carries in one's pocket; the pocket knife, for instance, the type of all human tools, the infant of the sword. Once I planned to write a book of poems entirely about things in my pockets. But I found it would be too long; and the age of the great epics is past."
G.K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936) "A Piece of Chalk." From an essay in Tremendous Trifles The original essay appeared in the Daily News, November 4, 1905

Recent customer comments:
"GREAT KNIVES! Beautiful, hefty, they've got that something that stands 'em up above the others."
"The model 1902 folder is in fact "yesterday in the palm of your hand"! In the last 32 years I have bought sold and traded unknown thousands of old antique knives and this could have been a Maher & Grosh or OVB or Hammer Brand, etc. The thick backsprings, the cut of the swedge, and you picked a great old pattern in just the right size. The double-buff finish is just as it should be and the weight is right - it FEELS RIGHT... very, very nice!"
"I think you have a great knife on your hands with this one."
