Re: Info please

We need better pictures, but given the ones we have, I don't see how this can be a swivel bolster. A close up of the front top bolster shows NO slant to the bolster or scale, which would be necessary for the swiveling bolster to have clearance. Puzzling.....

Probably not then...I think the ones I sold eventually ended up out of the country.

Re: Slant Bolster BO/BC

I'd like to think I had your old knife Sir Whippersnapper, but as this seller "says" he bought them in the '80's and has so far listed 3 of the imitation horn and 2 of these Rosewood/brass...well....could be. I'd still like to think so.
