I think this is the fourth of these that I have gotten now.
The first three were gifted out.
It's an improved version of the popular M-16 series.
I have not seen this before, with these improvements.
First, and foremost, the "hinge" screw has been checkered, and changed to a straight slot.
Previous variants required a torx driver.
A lot of finger stop has been added to the area behind the blade, and the extra safety pin has been removed from the frame.
I find these improvements more than welcome, and would like to keep this one for myself.
The black finished stainless blade is $18.00 over the price of the satin blade.
Manufacturer's model number is M16-01S...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

I just can't seem to hold onto the M-16 knife. Sigh....
Gave the latest away already.

Here's the consolation:

Image

Ireland mfg'd pocket knife.

Image

She's a three blader and just ever so slightly patina'd :P .
Blades are in good shape, and I've since sharpened them.
I like the profile of the "main" blade a lot.

Image

Maker's roll stamp.

The thinking here is if I buy an old knife, it won't be worth giving away....
These Irish steel knives were a big fat hairy deal when I was a kid, and not all that far behind the Sheffield English steel benchmark.
Almost certainly an "upper class" K-mart/Woolworth's knife.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Case, Puma, and pre-china Schrade I've been on the look-out for quite some time now.
Pumas do show up, albeit with unreasonable price tags.
I had the big sheath Schrade with the stag handle that stained your hands red when I was a kid, and would love to find another...
Fantastic long lasting edge on that one.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

yes indeed the hardware stores always had their wares prominately displayed back in the day - not so much anymore tho , i had a plumb hatchet and knife combo when i was a cub/boy scout back in the late 50s early 60s , i gave the knife to my godson for his tackle box knife , my dad used and abused the hatchet a lot back then but he always cleaned it up after , i think i left that with him when i left home , got it back in the 90s and had refitted it with an army surplus sheath , the old leather one it came with gave up the ghost after years of carrying , i had the army one that had the trenching tool attached but my daughter lost that set at a volleyball get together before she graduated high school ,

ive since replaced it wit a very sharp newer version by a good mfgr [gerber with knives to match] im able to do what i need if the need arises , ive not needed one in recent years but hate to be without one , i picked up a machete as well , im better equiped than i ever was a young person these days ,
