Yesterday a couple of new Schatt & Morgans arrived and were added to the storefront. One was a popular pattern we haven’t’ seen in a while and the second was a total surprise. AND… the is a Hurricane Sale Coming.
First is the Schatt & Morgan #49 Large Stockman. The medium stockman seems to come through with some regularity, but it was nice to see the Large Stockman.
Part of a run of 30 pieces each, the Large Stockman is available in Black Micarta, Ironwood and the Orange Burl pictured above. This is a generously proportioned knife that is great for anyone needing a real working knife.
The next ‘surprise’ were the Baby Doctor knives. I say they were a surprise as we don’t see a lot of Doctor Knives released regardless of size.
While that Spatula blade is a bit of an oddity for many, believe me it has a lot of utility. Years ago I smoked a pipe and found that blade incredibly handy. It works great as a mini pry bar for opening paint and varnish cans. While not perfect as a screwdriver, it will work. With a little tweaking it should work fine as a striker for the Fire Steel. And on it goes…
And finally, there’s a hurricane sale coming. I’ve accumulated a few knives that I’m going to offer at some sale prices to try and clean things up around here. In addition, a portion of the sales will go to either the Red Cross or the Salvation Army to offer a little aid for the folks getting the hell kicked out of them from the recent round of hurricanes.
The knives are going to be a mixture of auto’s, traditional and maybe a few fixed blades. I take a fair number of knives to the shows I attend and some of the knives become ‘demonstrators’. Some have boxes or packaging that’s gotten worn. A few are knives that arrived or customers returned with cosmetic issues. And some are knives which came out of collections I acquired that have been used. The mixture will include some S&M Autos, used GEC’s, knives I don’t regularly carry like a Stryder or maybe a MicroTech or even an auto Buck. How about a used GEC / Schrade Auto?
I’m going to start putting a few up today to get things started.
