    I've been on a bit of an old school kick of late andwhile I'm a big fan of USA made slipjoints recently I've been looking closer to home

    One name has stood out

    Joseph Rodgers

    Smaller folders than most are used to they tended to be around the 3 - 3.5 inch mark

    every one I've seen so far has been a winner.

    This is one i picked up recently - its a tad smaller than my GEC #14 but so far its been giving it a run for its money

    And I've had my eye on this one for a while - although the ebay price of $400+ is a bit of a shock!

    These look great. I'm a fan of the one blade pocket knife. Would love to handle one of them.

    Very nice, single blade knives just seem perfect for pocket carry.

    Are the handle scales made of bone?
    Any idea about the age of this knife?
    These are beautiful knives!
