Re: Jndiana Extra

Like the German knives these were copied from, they were made in both 10CM and 11CM sizes.

Re: Jndiana Postcard

I doubt anyone here is offended. Pontiac use an Indian chief as a mascot. Many US coins had Indian heads on them.

Re: Jndiana Postcard

I won a bet at a gun show in the late 1970s.
A vendor had a Jndiana stag folding hunter for sale for around $100.
I told him they were readily available for $29.95. He told me I was crazy, and bet me. So, I went to the car and got my Atlanta Cutlery catalog and showed him.

Re: Shop work pictures

The clip point knife is an old Aerial Cut. Co. It's a lever release, backspring operated auto.
I did the handles for Shursnap. This is a modern reproduction (on an old knife) of the Aerial picture handled knives. This would have been one of the pictures the maker used on these.

It's weird that an Italian company was using an American Indian on their postcards.
Not when the US was their biggest importer!

Re: Homemade scales for knife

JB Weld is a good epoxy. It's not as good as mechanical fasteners. No glue is.
