    Default Abram Brooksbank Double tang (not really sure what to call this...)

    Found this at the local antique store. 13/16th Abram Brooksbank w ivory scales. Has "Defiance" and cannon trademark on the front of the blade and the back of the tang. I haven't been able to find another example with a tang like this, what would you call it and have you seen another?

    I'd call it mother, for I've never seen another.

    Sweet find.!! Especially from the wilds.

    You have a good eye my friend! Nice find, those finds are what makes it a very enjoyable hobby. Congratulations! That is one you need to show @voidmonster, he might know something about it.

    I admire anyone who quotes ‘The Princess Bride’. Lol.

    Thanks, the scales were pretty dirty when I acquired that one, and the makers mark isn't that great from years of opening & closing, but I'm a sucker for a worked spine!

    I've never seen one exactly like that, but long tail tangs do pop up from time to time. I've heard them referred to as "monkey tail" tangs -- because monkeys have long tails.

    Here's a Joseph Rodgers & Sons with a similar tang (and a Wostenholm for size reference).
