I'm new here and this is my first post. Below are a few pics of my small John Ek collection. I have an early Hamden Model 1 with the original scabbard (serial number 1M66) without any company markings. I have included a letter written by John Ek in 1971 to a collector, written on a company invoice. I blacked out the name of the recipient because I wasn't sure if it was ok to include it here. Included in the photos are an early copy of "Your Silent Partner" and a later Richmond Va Ek with a retro Ek made leather scabbard.
