Gun Show, S&M Toothpicks, Collections Acquired

Lots to cover this morning!  First, let me remind everyone of the gun show to be held at the Detroit Lakes, MN National Guard Armory Saturday April 29 and Friday April 30.  Show hours are from 9 till 5 Sat and 9 til 3 on Sunday.  I’ve got four tables reserved and plan on bringing in an assortment of knives and miscellaneous ‘stuff’.

Over the weekend a box arrived from Queen containing some #20 Schatt & Morgan Toothpicks.  Queen has been using more wood on their handles of late and are really coming up with some great looking ones. Pictured below are (top to bottom) Oak, Golden Maple and Desert Ironwood.  An interesting point is the “1 of 30” etch on the Oak that is missing on the other two.  My understanding is these are all part of a run of 30 each.

Just before I sat down to write this, the Northfield two blade Sweet Pickle Jig Bone Weasels arrived.  I believe that’s the end of the run of 48’s.

The last note for the morning is I’ve accumulated around 30-40 knives from several small collections and will try to start listing some of them today.  It’s a pretty eclectic group with a little bit of everything from GEC.  There’s Ancient Kauri Wood, Genuine Stag, Primitive Bone, Natural Stag and so on.  Interesting group of older knives.
