Up for auction is this KA-BAR UNION CUT CO. yellow celluloid handle fish knife. It has what appear to be Celluloid handles. They are a bit transparent, not like yellow delrin or plastic. In fact I do not think Delrin was around when this knife was produced between 1923 and 1951. Lightly stamped in the celluloid is the number T29. It has a nice hook sharpener still intact. stamped on the tang of the knife is KA-BAR STAINLESS. It also has the remainder of some etching on the blade. Looks like endorsed by and some name in script, ending in "rey". The other side of the blade is etched STAINLESS STEEL and PAT 1,788,656. Stamped on the fish scaler is The same PAT 1,788,656. and on the opposite side. UNION CUT CO> OLEAN,N.Y. USA. The knife is in good plus condition. with minor scratching to the blades. measures 5" closed with a blade at 3 3/4". Very nice vintage KA-BAR... read more
Hello from Dave at SILVERLINE KNIVES. I will be listing over 200 fixed blade and old pocket knives from a 40 year old plus collection. I will try to list 5 to 10 a night. Most have not seen the light of day for quite some time. I will keep my descriptions short and to the point, bare with me as I do not know everything about some of these knives. Your help would be appreciated. I will provide more pictures at your request. I will try to answer all your questions.
