Ron Lake lockback folder, (see intro to lot 1, same circumstance) THE KNIFE, with exotic horn handles, engraved by the legendary Winston Churchill, stamped ''24'' on the reverse of the tang. Slide out toothpick under the handle, marked ''LAKE'' on the front side, grooved bolsters, 3 1/8'' closed, 5 1/2'' open, knife is mint except as is often the case with horn handles, the horn is pulling and rises above the bolsters a tiny bit. This may be the sleeper Ron Lake knife of all time. , THE MAKER: For more about Ron Lake, please see his bio on Lot 5 in this auction--and I will add he has always been one of the most helpful to other makers, and a good friend to me. As an officer in the Knifemakers' Guild he once said, ''To be a great organization we have to do great things.'' The same can be said of his him--he does great things. (pnm HM13-013)
