Derby, U.K.

I collect wristwatches, very eclectic mix with brand new Hugo Boss and 1920's Elgin! I love Seiko's and Bulova's, anything unusual.

  12. The law in England is iffy regarding imported goods markings, except for foodstuffs. Here is a quote regarding the law in UK: "The nearest the law comes to prescribing rules is section 36 of the T...

  14. There is no CHINA mark anywhere, but It does have "STAINLESS" stamped on the other side of the main blade tang, sorry I forgot to put that in the description! :-) It surprised me too, as I have two ...

  16. Great knife NB, I have a similar one I keep in my fishing tackle box. I've had this one for more than 25 years, and it's quality is outstanding. Sadly, they still make them today with the brass "Q an...

  24. Writing on blade is possibly Spanish for steel.
  25. Hi, it has been extensively ground down. Scroll down to find your model shown on this pdf. Cheers, Bob.
  26. COMET was a brand name for mining belt grips, for joining the ends of the belts together.
  27. I also agree that the blades are very worn, and when closed both blades are not touching the inner back as they should, so your surmise that they were of a "billhook" shape is probably correct. Tha...
  28. Thanks UncleRon, I too thought the knives must be worn, but the tang is undamaged, the pivot pin is not loose, and the blades lock tightly into place with a nice "snap". W hat are the chances that two...

  40. Great watch Jev! They still made the Academy Award models though in Canada up until 1968 at least. This ad from Watchophilia that I found, amongst many posted there, has two models, a man's and a la...
  41. Found out through vintage newspaper ads that this called a Legionnaire, and came in several guises
  42. Filmnet, try using 1200-1500 grit wet/dry paper to sand the scratches out, then use Brasso to clear the crystal, as it will look cloudy after the wet/dry paper. This is only for acrylic/plastic cryst...
