This is a very nice collection of 11 Kasper folders.
This is a Dog Bone Handle bowie from 1976. The 440c
blade is 12 inches long, the handle is stag horn, and the fittings
Battle Dirk This awesome blade combines the strength and slashing
power of the spear point with the thrusting superiority of the stiletto.
Marked #8 (no date) the distinct styling, file work all around the
tapered tang and script Crawford etched on the blade leaves no
doubt about its maker. Nickel silver guard and sub-hilt, red spacers and
stag handle material are all icing on the cake. Original Crawford
leather sheath is immediately above.
2. Push Dagger - Marked
1979, #181. The handle is solid brass and the blade is polished to a
mirror finish. The original brown leather sheath is fitted with a clip.
3. Thunder Strike Combat
Boot Knife This beautiful knife was likely made in the early 1980's.
The script Crawford is etched on the 4 x 5/8 double hollow
ground and highly polished blade that is sharpened along the entire top
edge. Handle material is Oosic that rests on red spacers and elaborate
file work all around the tapered tang. The original leather sheath is
fitted with a clip.
4. Battle Bowie Another
awesome sub-hilt fighter marked #42, 1980. A more traditional Bowie
shaped fighter on the largest practical scale. This knife maintains the
cutting capacity of the Battle Dirk with the sharpened top edge and
keeps the point in line with the handle to delivery accuracy in
thrusting. Detailed file work appears all around the tapered tang, and
red spacers highlight the beautiful stag handle material. Original
Crawford sheath is immediately above.
5. Credit Card Karambit
Black titanium with script Crawford etched on the side.
6. Film-Flam Folder
Awesome and unique! This knife is marked #13 and has the script
Crawford etched on the blade. This non-typical folder is strong and
practical when in use. The stiletto blade is not activated mechanically,
but depends on physical manipulation for both opening and closing.
Beautiful file work is found all around the frame, while nickel silver
bolsters, stag handle material and a black spacer at the back of the
frame complement this classic design.
7. Double Edge Boot Knife
Marked #56, 1979, this magnificent piece is larger than its
Oosic-handled friend seen above. The script Crawford appears on
the highly polished 4 x 3/4 double hollow ground blade with sharpened
leading top edge. Not only is there file work all around the full
tapered tang with black spacers, but the Sambar Stag handle is matched
with a Sambar Stag sheath! WOW!
8. Marauder Combat Bowie
- An early fighting knife, marked 1976, #10. The rosewood handle has
red/brown spacers, and the tang has file work and brass protrusions for
grip and appearance. The modified Bowie shaped 7 blade has a sharpened
top edge. Crawford is stamped at the base of the blade.
9. Fighting French Folder
Bold red spacers are matched to the handsome stag handle material that
has both a thumb and index finger notch. The famous Crawford locking
system is employed on this beauty when fully opened by using one of the
dual thumb studs. Script Crawford is etched on the side of the
hollow-ground folding blade.
10. Large Donnybrook
Folder This beautiful lock back folder is marked #23 and has script
Crawford etched on the side of the very highly polished hollow
ground 440C stainless steel blade. Both the liners and bolsters are
nickel silver, and the stag handles ride on red spacers. Beautiful
design and expertly made in the early 1980s.
11. Kasper Flipper Folder
This newer Crawford folder is especially interesting in that the
titanium liner lock and pocket clip are designed for a left hander to
use! Beautiful file work is all around the frame and back spacer, and
engine turning is seen on the pocket clip and on the entire inside
of the titanium frame! Damascus bolsters and carbon fiber handle
material complements the thick, beefy S30V stainless steel flipper
12. Key Chain Cutter
Looks like a bear claw! Bead blasted finish and script Crawford
on the blade. Original Crawford sheath is immediately above.
13. Double Edge Boot
Knife (later known as the Raider Attack Combat Boot Knife) An
exceptional double edge boot knife marked #41, 1978. The full tapered
tang has file work all around and is complemented by the nickel silver
guard. Red spacers highlight the beautiful stag handle material.
Crawford is stamped at the base of the 4 x 1 double hollow ground
blade. The original leather sheath is fitted with a clip.
14. Devil Dart This
440C stainless steel dart has a bead blasted finish and a triangle
shaped blade for strength and ease of penetration. The handle is knurled
for sure grip. The original brown leather sheath is fitted with a clip.
Top to bottom:
1. Devil Dart - judging by the original brown
leather sheath I'd guess mid-1990's?
2. Push Dagger - marked 1979, #181 with original
brown leather sheath.
3. an early fighting knife - marked 1976, #10. The
rosewood handle has brass protrusions for grip/appearance.
4. Sub-Hilt fighter - a beauty! Marked #42, 1980.
Original sheath is vertical on left.
5. Double Edge Boot Knife - marked #41, 1978 with
original leather sheath.

leather sheath. The handle material is Oosic, and likely made in the
