My oldest edc is a Utica cutlery pocket knife, no idea how old but probably from the 60's. My Case stockman is from about the same time frame. I do have one kitchen knife that's from the 1940's and a couple from the 1930's.

It's a produce knife. I think The oldest one I have is a Case lock back my mom bought for me in the early 80's. I do have a few knives from the 1860's but they were old when I got them.
I agree. I've often seen them called "melon knives".

I forgot about my old Buck 110, I have one that has gutted quite a few deer. I don't know exactly when I got it, but it was before I joined the Army in 1969.

I still carry the Old Timer, but the bigger Uncle Henry's I stopped cuz the sheaths wore out. The Boker I never really carried much. That was a gift from my brother over 25 years ago.

I've got old buck stockman similar to your old timer. It's only about 30 years old though. Always carry it deer hunting.

I've got a bunch of them, this one I bought with S & H Green Stamps in Many, Louisiana's in about 1979, it cost me about $1.25 for the taxes. It's cheap, no maker name on it. But it's been a good one. View attachment 250085
Did you buy it from Bowen's Hardware? He knew his knives I had lake side cabin get away on Toledo Bend at that time in the past.

I'm a collector so most of my knives don't count. Oldest PERSONAL knife I own is a Puma stockman bought in 1975. It looks USED and deserves it! Still have one of Grampa's farm pocket knives, probably from the 1950's, very worn but very nice bone grips. HAD a Buck 120 "general" I carried since 1971 and used a LOT, until a couple years ago it sprouted legs and walked off.. boyhowdy that chaps my hide!..

This is a shadow box that my mother in law made for me as an Easter present this year. It contains all of her father's knives. She said that he would rotate out his carry knives based on his day. Apparently the little gold knife was his church knife. 😊 I am not exactly sure of what the bayonet is. However I do know that it doesn't quite fit on an 1909 Argentine Mauser. 😉 This awesome gift is mounted on the wall in my reloading room.

It came from S&H Green Stamps in Many, Lousiana.

This is the oldest surviving knife I can find. I lost my Buck 110 and was going to the store to buy a replacement but a friend said he would give me one. It turned out to be a China knock off Buck. This was in 1978. He had a box full of them.

I carried it for a few years in my back pocket. I replaced it with another Buck 101 and left it in a tool box.

I hadn't realized China was cloning knives that long ago.
