ADDITIONAL INFO: To me, this knife is always been one of the ultimate bird and trout knives of all times. What strikes me as unusual about this knife is that I have never seen this on the blade before. Normally the scene etched on the blade is a pair of mallards in flight with three other mallards in the background. This etch is of a beautiful Eagle with his wings spread over the water with a salmon clutched in his talons. The sheath is the original sheath but it had damage to it when I received it. The belt/boot clip on the back of the sheath was broken off and the point of the blade had been pushed through the stitching. The original sheaths have a staple at the stitching to prevent the blade from going through the stitching, however it is notoriously an effective. The blade through the stitching was a common problem with these knives when they were new in the 1980s. I saw it a number of times when I managed the cutlery store. To repair this sheath I ripped out all of the stitching, replace the belt/boot clip with a new clip, re-stitched the leather that secures the clip, re-stitched the sheath and placed two rivets at the end of the sheath to prevent the blade from cutting the stitching. The repair it’s effective and it should last eliminate the problem if one uses care when replacing the blade in the sheath. The knife has been used very little and would make an excellent display knife, especially considering the Eagle etch on the blade.
