OSBORNE LEATHER ROUND KNIFE

Today it's something I've been wanting for a while...

It's an old Osborne Leather Round Knife.
I believe Osborne moved to Harrison NJ in 1906 so this knife was made before 1906.
It's still in super nice shape and I just gave it a razor edge so I'm good to go.   
I quickly made this leather sheath for it so I don't accidentally slice my hand open with it just sitting on the table.
Super sharp and has  a nice "ring" to it when it's tapped on the table.
slices through leather like it should.
I've gotten about all the main leather tools I need now.   I prefer the antique ones as I feel more into the past when I use them.   It's vintage gear for guys!
