Here is a little knife I picked out of a "junk drawer" at an estate sale years ago. Made by Marbles of Gladstone MI.

I'd vote for an "edged implements" area for Show & Tell.

    Very nice Marbles Oter's pattern knife. The two rivet stag handle would date it 1932 to mid 40's.
    Nice collection you got there.

    Thanks Dave. I have more and someday i'll get them all together and organized. If your a knife person I have a question for you. The knife on the right in the group picture, with the 2 blades open is a Winchester No.2681 Electrician's / Lineman's knife. My problem is the flat tipped blade is stuck open, there is no locking mechanism that I can see so I can not understand why it won't close. I have used what I feel is the most force I can without doing some kind of damage. I suppose I could try using a "bigger hammer" but I would rather leave it open for now than damage it. Any suggestions?

    I just pulled out a couple of my early electricians knives and the center liner pops over to lock the screw driver blade in place, this is common with this type of blade. There is usually a high point on the center liner to push it over, but yours may be broken off.

    Seems Winchester has a unique locking mechanism for the old TL-29 knives. You have to press in on the main blade to release the lock on the screw driver blade.
    By the way, love that push button, is that a George Schrade?

    Amazing! It worked like a charm. That blade has been open for 7 years, since I got it. Thanks Dave

    The blade on the push button is stamped: Press Button Knife Co. Walden N.Y., U.S.Pat. 470.605
