    I was working the backdoor for a local thrift shop and they have a policy that they don't sell knives, so imagine how thrilled I was to get a free Elinox Spartan (looks like a 73-75 run). Blade tips are slightly bent and it needs sharpening and a good bath, but not bad for a freebie. Had to mention it here as the wife doesn't care, ha ha. I'd post pics, but my phone decided it doesn't like photobucket anymore.

    Nice score.

    I hope that thrift store goes out of business for having a no knife policy and having likely thrown away some good knives over the years.

    Neat score. I also thought of that a few years back, and phoned those stores asking about their pocket knife policy. I had visions of old bone handled, age burnished, slip joints raining down on me for a pittance. The robotic reply that I received is that they "dispose" of them. Meaning that they toss them out with their dump loads, which are likely voluminous.

    This Victorinox Spirit I found in a pawn shop yesterday. Looks like it wasn’t really ever used.

    It has the Toyota Tundra logo on the one side and on the other it’s says one [email protected]@ truck.

    The logos are both engraved in the handles.

    Toyota Tundra is my favorite truck so it’s kind of a neat piece :)
