    @Jack Black says these were made to give to schoolboys at the time (I believe the girls got scissors). He has seen plenty of them. I found this at a gun show last year.

    I vowed that this round, I'd use only knives in which the letter of the day was the first letter of a word that was part of the "normal" description of the knife (maker, pattern, etc.). I have to concede defeat on "Q". :(:thumbsdown:

    (I guess I'll have to add a Queen knife to the very top of my wish list! :rolleyes:)

    It must have been Jeff, Neal. I still have all my old knives on a spreadsheet under a "Sold" tab and although I did sell mine a few years ago, mine was serial number 315.:)

    Do you think I could have, in good conscience, gotten by with
    "Q is for Quill"?

    Great choice and particular favourite of mine the Queen No.6 Teardrop.:thumbsup: I'm lucky to have the ACSB shown and Zebra plus the WCSB and BEM versions. The Bird's Eye is the least satisfying as it's a queer cat-barf pink colour :eek::D and it has build faults-got from an unscrupulous dealer years ago. But, the pattern is an excellent locking knife with very sharp D2 possibilities:cool:

    Thanks, Will

    QUEEN QUORUM

    WCSB Stockman and ACSB Jack, same frame. The Jack qualifies for my notorious 'dirt-trap' accolade:D @r8shell as it has no wraparound spring and has this chasm like space under the minor blade with no liner between the 2 blades either..

    I haven't been keeping up with this thread, am I too late to post a Quill knife?

    Excellent example Rachel! A nice rarity too:cool:

    ALL knives should have wraparounds, sheer laziness and depravity not to:D An invitation to wickedness and vice, hence the dirt-trap ;):D

    You could have, and I think you did.

    As for me, I’ve got nothin’. I also made the rookie mistake of using all three of my Pioneer Xs in the first round, so I’ll be out of luck then, too.
