Re: 712R Value

I agree with you Tom. As I mentioned, these are well built knives. Unused examples are desired by German leverlcok collectors, but there must have been a lot of them made as it seems those of us who like these knives all have a few. Stag is a common handle material as is jigged delrin. Dyed bone or ...

Re: 712R Value

It is a well known German leverlock. These were designated either 712 or 715. Most of the 712 models I have seen have the jigged delrin handles and frosted front of the blade with "Tree Brand Classic" etch and the same stamp as yours. Those with the polished front of the blade, the blade etch like y...

The Lucas reference reminds me of a joke I read from Al (Vagrant) 20 or so years ago

Why do the British drink their beer warm?

Lucas refrigerators

Re: Roofing Tales Of Madness

Sir Wallace, AS always, I enjoyed this episode of roofing madness. Serious roofing question: some time ago at a social event I heard contractor state that the practice you described of placing a new asphalt roof on top of the old one is a bad one. The reasons being that in addition to adding signifi...

Re: My New Display Case

button_man - sorry to read of the theft. I certainly understand your motive to keep them out of sight. Hope it doesn't happen again - some collectors store their knives in safes.

Re: My New Display Case

I have the same knife chest as JPD1998, even down to the mirror, but stained in dark cherry. It came from Lowes and was $55 if I remember correctly, but that was about 15 years ago. It seems they get them every year during late Winter and place them among the tool boxes.
