I have been on a bit of a buying spree with U.S. Knives of late. I was sniped on a Kinfolks V44 with Sheath and an interesting Western "Dive Knife?" with painted yellow pommel. The one that I lost that bothered me the most was an early Robeson Shuredge Blade Stamped Mark 2 with bright blade. I was the only bidder and after the auction ended seller said the knife was stolen. Maybe it was for the best.

First the ones that got away

Kinfolks V44

Western "Dive Knife"?

Robeson Mark 2

https://m.ebay.com/i...9501530?trxId=0

Then there is the group I got

Colonial Mark 1, Cattaraugus Q225 (I had), added another PAL RH-36 Blued, an interesting EGW with wood grips and metal ring, Western L-77 and West-Cut (not sure if it is WWII)

Colonial Mark I U.S.N. Marked c76387d24447bb764c550ba053718f3b.jpg0751130d21fa4487fc0fbc8f3b71c8a7.jpgdd6cda5e417f9872fcb44e36e4319dda.jpga4e27de9e5c8900a56bf76f95caa7eb9.jpg I have some nicer ones on the way. Other than the L-77 this group was pretty inexpensive. The L-77 does not seem to sell for less than $200.

What happened to the pommel on the PAL RH 36?

Good question it is quite different than the one on my other one. However it does not look ground or cut. I also saw another one listed with a similar pommel.

Here are a couple pics of two more that arrived. Case 337-6"Q and I believe Western G46-8. It is a big one. It is just marked Western PAT'D which if I understand correctly is early war.

That RH 36 is odd; but the collection is nice.  Good luck on the next additions.

After looking at it several times, going back and forth from the pictures to my own 36's. IMHO, I'm leaning towards it being the original pommel having been reshaped.  From the patina I think it was done awhile ago.

Regardless nice grouping.

Is the West-Cut wartime or post war? It has the patent number and no other numbers. I read they were a cheaper line but was that later?

Another Small Group that includes a Aidaco which a don't find much info about. PAL RH-36 with PAL Sheath with Name on Back. Knife and Sheath are Rough but I liked the name marked Sheath. EGW but this one is marked differently just EGW over KNIFE on one side no U.S.A. on the other. Also grip is Leather not wood. 1763ac7a6ff39f7687d9fb2b73a4f68f.jpg228e1603b0afb578598df0a0eaeec497.jpg6237182496212f6d08afe1e005e686c4.jpg258967415b9fcafe8fd4058062704bb9.jpg42d390b4b15f2c7f78d73b4358b7bd84.jpg054e189de04f15b211792d2350ce07c9.jpg4bf5a5e938b07b11c0b86f14f142f8d3.jpg79417111c0e24b8df252821aba44267b.jpg56417e2e13f28be443f5ca3341cc36ba.jpg Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
