For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new storefront. As things are getting moved from the old format to the new, I’m making some new old stock knife discoveries.
There have have instability issues for some time now in the storefront and I’m finding items that were deleted that shouldn’t have been. Some are rather interesting, such as this gem.
It’s a Schatt & Morgan 67 mini barlow in Gold Lip MOP. Really a pretty little knife.
Another I had forgotten about is this 49 Stockman with jigged MOP handles. It’s a prototype and I can’t say as I’ve ever run across another one.
I went over the handle material and originally thought it might be a synthetic MOP. The more I looked at it the more convinced I am it is actually MOP. When you ‘roll’ it in the light you pick up the coloration you’d find in MOP. In addition, along the liners I found minor flaws that would be characteristic of MOP and not a synthetic material.
The Schatt & Morgan #045155 Medium Stockman 1 of 12 Red Jigged Bone is another really nice knife. The blade etch says 1 of 600 but they actually only made 12 of these with the “2007” etch on the Spey blade making it pretty nice collectible. These are really well done knives. Quality and fit and finish is excellent.
These new old stock knife discoveries are always fun to come across. I know there are more but these kind of stood out from the crowd.
On a totally different note, I keep getting a few more of the 291391 Stags trickling in. Interestingly enough, the later ones have even nicer stag then the early ones!
Some of the earlier ones didn’t always have that nice of a match front to back. The last one’s I’ve seen seem to be much better. I still have a good selection on hand and I see the Ebay prices are slowly moving up.
