Vern Burke, SwiftWater Edge Tool Works
The big guy in the red suit is almost here!
Do you know someone who would appreciate a nice set of quality tools for Christmas? Before you head off to the big box stores to get the latest shiny junk made in China, take a look at our quality restored vintage “made in USA” tools (I’ll be featuring one or two great tools from inventory every day until Christmas!). Hand saws, crosscut saws, axes, classic woodworking tools, you don’t see these in Walmart!
This is a great vintage Case XX Barlow pocket knife, pattern 009. This knife has dark sawn bone handles and high carbon steel blades (you can’t beat high carbon steel for the best edge!). Both blades show little sign of having been sharpened (unusual for a vintage knife), the knife is tight, and the springs are strong. This knife has been cleaned, lubricated, and sharpened and would make an excellent Christmas present! $40.
