    Being an Imperial fan, I'd be dissapointed if you didn't.

    Congrats!

    Seeing as how your location is "Right behind you", I don't think I'll be giving up my "honey holes" locations.;)

    Suffice to say I live a few minutes away from the Antique capital of North Eastern Ct. A fellow knife nut who owns a shop hooks me up with older knives sometimes.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is that blade on the left? :confused:

    Thats a can opener John. I believe the stud is hooked under the rim of the can for use in the right hand. Not too lefty friendly.

    Yup. You push to cut the lid. The pull-to-cut type we are all used to seeing nowadays was patented by Imperial in 1944. I could be off a year or two.

    Ah, more pandering to the looney-left, I see. :rolleyes: ;)

    By the way, Todd; thanks ever so much for posting those pics. How am I supposed to be satisfied with my recent production Case Scout Knife, anymore?
