Thank you all for the very kind words! I've done some forum searches on Astor and I'm very fortunate to have found one. As Astor itself is not a common stamp, I understand it in Kris Blade is even more fortunate to find. I'm sure that's true with any stamp, that there would usually be less Kris Blades. Thanks again!

That's a true statement. Plus, as far as I know, the smallest vintage kris blade knives were 7".

i met a guy a few years back that claims he had an ASTOR that once belonged to RAYMOND PATRIARCA, he wouldn't sell it to me.

I had an 11" Astor that once belonged to Sonny Barger.

It had notches in the horn that I always wondered about.

Looks like Sonny must have shanked four outlaws with it.

Thanks for the info Jackalope. Obviously, I haven’t spent enough time in New England.

Great Astor, a classic model with a nice kris blade.
