BALL GRIP TRADE KNIFES :
I am now offering my English and French trade knives with the popular and very correct ball, or pistol grip. The photo shows a special order knife which features a full and tapered tang with bone grip panels. With this type of tang, it would no longer be considered an acual "trade" knife, but would still be period correct as a commercial belt or table knife. The standard models will still retain the trade knife correct partial tapered tang with a one piece ball grip, but will still have the exact same profile as the special order knife in the photo. These are offered in Walnut, Curly Maple, or Boxwood. The special model with a full tapered tang, and bone grips is $195.00. Walnut $175.00, high grade Curly Maple $180.00, and Boxwood $185.00.
Standard partial tang trade knife blades fitted with a ball grip will be priced as follows :
Walnut, or medium figured Curly Maple $135.00. High grade Curly Maple $140.00, and Boxwood at $145.00.
