Looking for a specific unusual pocket knife

A little background. 25 years ago I'm a typical bone headed E4 in the Army and my grandfather sends me a really nice pocket knife. It was pretty unusual and I stupidly carried it around with me instead of putting it up. Lost it in the air terminal while waiting for a C130 to ship my unit to Germany for training and I've kicked myself for it ever since.

I've decided to try to find on like it if possible. It was a folding knife with some type of white handles. I'm guessing bone but I can't be sure.

What was unusual about it was the blade shape. It had a single blade that looked like a shaving razor. The end had a crescent shape and the top of the crescent was deep enough and tall enough that you could snag the opening on the edge of your pocket and open the blade one handed.

The closest thing I've found so far is this.

Imagine just the razor blade, deepen the curve on the end, and make the whole thing much higher quality knife. My GF passed away years ago so I'm hoping the magic of the internet might do the trick.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Ever heard of anything like this?

Your description reads as though one blade was a "one arm" knife. I found two on Epay, Queen made, and I found a number of one arm razor knives from Case. Found a bunch from Frost.

Granddad must love you. When you pay full market price for a Case or Queen, you will be a little more careful about not losing it next time.

I've seen pics of something very similar to what you describe... It was called a "cane knife" and was intended for use where sugar cane was grown. The examples I've seen were custom made and intended for close up social work by someone who knew how to use a razor for fighting purposes. Can't remember where I saw them shown but try "cane knife" for a start...

*after posting this I did some quick research on cane knives and only found specific purpose machetes used in the cane fields. Nothing came up with a folding pocket knife in the style I've seen called "cane knife" so my memory may be at fault... good luck.

got the bug and didn't give up.... finally found a catalogue entry for cane cutter pocket knives. Here's the link, and it corresponds to what the original poster asked about...

The few I've seen were from high end custom makers and had very, very sharp damascus blades....
