This one was an unusual find for my collection. Does anyone else have one of these?
This little feller has a blade that is only 3 1/4" long. It's a little skinning knife, made in the late 1960s by Boker USA.
This one is a 253 pattern, but judging by this catalog ad from 1966, there were several variants. It appears the knives with the 1XX prefix were stacked leather, while the 2XX prefix were stacked aluminum and black fiber.

Were the Westerns from the same time period?

You guys ever see those "Official Sheriff's Knife" fixed blades? That handle reminds me of them but I forget now who they were ricasso stamped by. ::dang::

Edit- maybe it was the glove with the 3 arrows? ::shrug::
