Nice Dogs Billy!!
Those scales are gorgeous!
great looking fish roger.love the double nail pull.....
This is the latest three sunfish, I bought while on vacation, Top two, from SMKW are Ocoee River Cutlery, a Frost Brand Import. Quanlity is a little higher than rough riders. The third bought at a Smoky Mountain junk/antique store after I asked that sometimes, magic question: "Got any old knives?!" and Yesss!. He brings out a King Edward cigar box and in with the mostly worn out Case XX and Camillus pocket knives, ( he had the shell bolstered Colonial and Imperials under glass, thank God!), under a broken Eye Brand stockman., was this big dirty sunfish with a ink stain in the corner of the bone! It is marked : North American, Beaver City, Nebr. This is a great knife group !, and the forum posts and photos are a big help. Thanks Rick
Picked this Case LMXX jumbo sleeveboard last week, very cool knife with red wine smoothbone, I like it! My question would be was there an original Case or Case family #6270 pattern. This one is 4 1/8 inches long, Sarge shows one #6270 in his guide as 3 inches long! with no picture to support this. However he shows a 3 blade jumbo whittler , Case Bros. Gowanda NY. (gasp, what a treasure!) no length shown, looks over four inches. Any thoughts on this? thanks Rick
