    Antique Schrade Bone Handled Switchblade


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This would be what I think is the US paratroopers knife made by Schrade. I am guessing this one dates around WWII. I purchased this one from Jim Sargent personally. Jim had it cleaned professionally by Jim Fox from Knoxville, TN. Fox is one of the very best in professionally restoring the finish to knives and Sargent uses him for all of his cleaning. The spring on this knife works well and it has a smooth action. It sits down in the handle like it should and opens all the way with the release. There is a very small amount of side to side movement in the blade when it is locked open. This knife is very clean and will be a great addition to your collection.

    If you look at the tang on the opposite side of the stamped one, you can see there are some minor pits that Jim wasn't able to clean out without damaging the thickness of the blade.

    My asking price is $275 or your best offer Price Drop - Now $250 -- Now $230 -- REMOVED.
