Mayo Persian Flipper and Foster Mini R1

Up for sale are two cool pieces...here they are:

1) Up first is a Mayo Persian flipper. I am (at least) the second owner of this sweet knife. Like any Mayo it has perfect detent, centering, lock up, etc. I have carried the piece so it does have snail trails and there is a tiny mark ("ding") on the frame (see pics by finger). The knife has been used to cut but retains the original edge from Mr. Mayo. Tom does offer spa work but I will leave that up to the new owner in case they would like to have a "user" piece.

OAL: 8.75"
Blade Length: 3.75"
Handle Length: 5"
Steel: CPM154 (no markings on the blade though)



2) Next up is a Foster SoCal "Mini R1"...original owner. This has also been carried and has snail trails but the blade is in perfect condition. Detent, lock up, blade seating are perfect on this piece. The timascus clip is very cool and goes perfectly with the heat treated pivot.

OAL: 7.5"+
Blade Length: 3"
Handle: 4.5"
Steel: CPM154



Not looking or any trades at this time.

These items have been cross listed on other forums.

All payments are to be made via PayPal and the first "I'll take it" in the thread or PM gets the item (if two people post up...the earliest time stamp gets it).

Please email, post, or PM with any questions...Cheers!
