    Whats up everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself by saying I love knives. I have been a amateur collector my whole life but I have never joined a knife forum until now. I look forward to participating.

    I hope I am in the right sub-forum, If not let me know. I found a really cool knife about 8 years ago and I wanted to share it. I would love to hear your thoughts about the knife. I have no idea who made it, or when it was made. I took it to a couple different antique shops and was told anywhere from 1890's to 1950's..... I was helping a friends family tear down an old cabin on their property in Southern Utah when I found the knife under a floor board. The leather was covered in mold, the blade was completely rusted, and the brass was green and fuzzy. I sanded the rust down but did not go far enough to expose bare metal. I also cleaned and oiled the leather. As far as sharpening I could not believe how hard the steel was, it was harder to cut with diamond stones than my D2 Benchmade's or other super steel knives I have sharpened. Here are some pictures, let me know your thoughts, theater knife from ww1, ww2, more modern, handmade, factory, etc.

    Thanks for the welcomes. I have been a long time user on the land cruiser Ih8mud forum and have really enjoyed it. I am getting the impression that this forum will be just as cool and friendly as the land cruiser community, and I look forward to participating. The knife pictured above haunts me.... I constantly find myself holding it and wondering what its history is. It just feels like a knife that would have been used for some serious stuff. It was found in close proximity to the famous Utah outlaw trail that was used by outlaws such as Butch Cassidy and Ben Kilpatrick. I can't help but imagine an outlaw using this knife every time I hold it lol.
