    Does anyone remember the Chicago cutlery hunting knife?

    Back in the early 70's or late 60's my Mom worked at a department store that sold Chicago cutlery knives. She gave me, for my birthday, a sheath knife made by Chicago Cutlery wood handled and tool steel. I still have it and it is my favorite knife, simple in style,easy to sharpen, and it holds an edge.
    The problem is that it is my wife's favorite knife too and I can't get it out of the kitchen and I can find no mention of it on the internet.
    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    First I've heard of it, but why don't you post a pic of the one you have?

    Cool. There are a couple of model 96's on Ebay right now, maybe a little bigger than yours.

    I use Chicagos in the kitchen myself and like them fine.

    Thanks Parker, I found one at $99. Sure would be my luck that the one Chicago knife I want to duplicate would be expensive.

    I've got a 94S also but it's stainless. Pretty good knife.

    I've got enough 62S's that I don't buy any more unless they're under a dollar. It's amazing to me that the steel and wood, engineering and manufacturing that went into making one, and you can get it for less than a buck (don't even get me started on pianos...)

    But I guess some guys just like to throw their money around...

    I thought they have too close a resemblance in design to the Old Hickory line to justify such a cost myself.
