    jblyttle: Nice looking Easy Open pocket knife on the right side of the photo. Is the maker marked on the main blade? John

    Grabbed this thing down at the local hardware store, I needed a bit of a project to blow off some steam and this had a whole lot of surface rust, but otherwise looked pretty good. So I figured, why the hell not, I don't have a cruiser yet and thats what I chopped wood with as a kid.

    The only marking on it is a 2 2 (with the second two being about half the size of the first).

    It's 8 1/2" wide

    Cleaning up pretty well, just have a little bit to go I think. The handle is pretty rough and missing a lot of wood, but it still seems solid enough to have a bit more life in it. I think I will probably hold off on rehanging it until I need to.

    Edit: A couple ebay auctions seem to indicate that this is a True Temper, and it was originally painted red with a paper label. Can anyone confirm that?

    Yep it's a TT woodslasher that would've come red.
    Looks better without it though.

    Look to me to be threading tools for internal threads, seen them used to cut internal threads in wood projects. Have not seen them used since the early eighties though. Would be a great addition if you were a wheel wright.

    Yes, other than a tap and die these cutters were for use on a lathe.
