Smashing Pumpkins

Smashing Pumpkins

In the late 60s and early 70’s the pocket knife craze was alive and in full swing. Any hardware store worth their salt would have a good collection to choose from, and if they were a Case, you’d be seeing the bright orange of the pumpkin boxes behind the shelf. Originally, these boxes were used […]

New Arrivals

New Arrivals

A two new releases have caught my eye, thought I’d mention to them to you right quick. First is the Starlight Kirinite. I’ve been really pleased with how the Kirinite stuff has turned out. It’s a really bright synthetic material and, judging by some of its earlier releases, it can house a lot of variety of […]

My Old Man

The Zac Brown Band are some pretty chill dudes with some pretty class act music. This is coming from a man that has a kind of contrary opinion to just about everyone else around here in the fact that country music is very low on my priority for tunes. Don’t get me wrong, Folk, Bluegrass, […]

Bill of Rights

Bill of Rights

The Bill of Rights is one of our keystones as Americans. A set of unshakable, inalienable rights granted to us due to being citizens of the United States. Honoring this document in our upcoming auction in June is a Bill of Rights knife by none-other than Linda Karst. So I got to thinking, and realized […]

The NRA Show

Founded in 1871 by Union vets William C. Church and George Wingate, the National Rifle Association has a long and proud history of putting we the people first and foremost in defending our inalienable right to bear arms and, over time, has amassed a large following of like-minded individuals with the same beliefs. For gun […]

Red Cross Knives

Red Cross Knives

At the Oregon Knife Collector’s Show earlier on in the month, we came across quite the interesting fella. His forte? Hobo knives. He had a massive display of Hobo knives, it was quite the sight to see. His collection consisted of hobo patterns of all eras, but a certain vintage caught our eye, WW1 vintage […]

Bowie
