  1. rujab, The Major Popp chain is great. I really like that 1870 Ek and Oaks.
  2. Peter and Kasle, Thanks very much for posting your Godet mini Eks. I think you might be right in that the fact that minie has a ribbon is due to the fact that mine uses much smaller crosses.
  3. Some obsessions never die. ---- I've got a couple new mini Eks coming.
  4. Nice looking cross Chris. I prefer my crosses to have that "been there-done that" look about them. I still do not have an engraved cross of my own. I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short.
  5. Congrats on a Very nice, hard to find cross. I'm still looking for one of my own.
  6. That's quite a pair you have there Chris. My #15 is just a shorter version of your #14. I can agree they are a h3ll of a knife. But that #1 is just awesome.
  7. $200 No days, you pay that just to hold one at a show. Most VN era or earlier blades I have seen, cost more than what I paid for my car. Granted, my car is a POS but stil, I've seen them regularly go for more than $3000.
  8. Randall's are great knives and a vintage Randall #1 is on my list to find but my tiny budget does not alloy that kind of indulgences.
  9. Jerry and Chris, Thanks for the comments. I agree, these are pretty much useless today. They were designed to do only one thing and do it well. That is part of what appeals to me about them.
  10. Just arrived yesterday. A Wilkinson made 2nd pattern F-S knife with sheath. It's pretty well used and abused but it's a correct and the etchings are still readable.
  11. Very nice. It's been a couple years sense my last mini purchase. They seem to be getting harder to find and prices have gone crazy.........and don't even get my started on all the fakes
  12. I am always leary of engraved crosses, especially when it involves the name of a general or other high profile person, All that being said, I like this one. The engraving looks like other examples I have seen.
  13. Here is one that I've been following-------- http://www.ebay.com/itm/231289368904?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
  14. That's well over twice what I would expect to pay for one of those. Especially in that condition.
