Knife gig went pretty smooth today. All knives came in groups of 2 or so and 2 lots of 3 each.

Smooth sailing like that. - total for the day: 14 on site and 5 for homework.

You will see two really nice older knives from one of my Norwegian customers – I likem.

One is old Puma skinner and one is Helle. - not sure what model it is, but it is kewl ticket.

Good luck to everyone

Tuffy, another great video. I think you are just a natural born salesman. You just seem to have a great way with people! I would enjoy watching more of you interacting with your customers! I always get at least one good laugh per video. :lol:

ps, thanks for the uline box lead.

Hello Tuffy
This is an old knife named "Dyre Vaa" produced early 1980´s. It is no longer in our production and unfortunately we have no Dyre Vaa in stock.

Sure is a beut it is a good polishing job. If the owner can be bothered tell him to get some neatsfoot oil to treat the leather the oils just feeds the leather one application shouldn't even change the colour.Neartsfoot oil is made from cows I imagine it is some sort of refined oil from the stock its fantastic for leather I use it on my leather work especially when I make sheathes or knife cases .

The smaller case is for a Leatherman folder & the bigger one is for a Myerchin .

Yes you are right it is a smallish marlin spike with a flat tapered point designed to aid splicing , tighten knotting when used as a lever to jerk with , to undue large shackles and this particular style the point is used to separate the lay of wire ropes when hand splicing them to create eyes around thimbles or large loops (soft eyes ) to pass over spars.
www.csosborne.com/leather_1.html who make the best leather tools do them in various sizes from 6 inches to two foot long some of the older spikes were made of LIgnum Vitae and were used for none wire splicing.
Ropework & splicing is another of my passions my bible for this is the "Ashley Book of Knots" it is a tome that contains just about all there is on knotting.
Boye knives are supposed to be the best knives for sailers I have never seen on in the flesh ; they are not cheap.
Has anyone used these?

I only have bad memories of using a marlin spin, but i did for many years. you and i have many things in common it seems.
in the late 70's and mid 80's i was a commercial fisherman. had many boats of different sizes and shapes. spent way toooo much time away from home fishing for fluke, black sea bass and squid in the offshore deep.
