ADDITIONAL INFO: This is a nice carbon steel knife probably made after 1960 to 1962 because the use of Delrin or knife else did not begin until 1960. This pattern was made into the 70s and of here is in a 1978 catalog reprint in Harvey Platts book, “The Knife Makers Who Went West.” I would not pretend this knife is worthy of being the centerpiece of a display, but it would make a very nice EDC for the person who enjoys carrying a small classic pattern that cuts very well!
