Thank you for your interest in this knife. My father, Jay Bigler, a hobbyist knifemaker, was pretty much self-taught and didn't begin making knives until after he retired in 1993. He passed in 2016, but had suffered from a severe stroke in 2012 at the age of 82. He was not able to work on knives from that time on. Before that he was prolific in the knives he produced. No two were ever completely alike.

He did not catalog his knives as to when they were made or the materials that he used. However, I have been able to discern a range of years from how he put his name on the knives. The “J BIGLER” semicircle dates this knife sometime from 2004 to early 2012.

Although I am no expert on knives – and as wonderful and creative as Dad’s work is – I do try to point out any flaws with a knife that I can discern so that the buyer will be aware of what he or she is buying and not be “surprised” by the condition of the knife when it is received.

This knife has a 2" blade and is 5 3/8" long when open. Closed, it's 3". Nice looking, but with a couple of issues. Dad's name stamp is only partially on the blade. It looks like he stamped it before he finished shaping it. The tip of the blade doesn't fully tuck into the handle when it's closed, just barely, but it can be felt. That's why for the buyer I have included a sheath – nothing fancy, just one of the extras that Dad made for folders.

Selling “as is”.

As a side note: I am so grateful to all the buyers who have purchased Bigler knives. It makes me glad to know how widely appreciated my father’s work is. Through sales on All About Pocket Knives and elsewhere, knives have gone to collectors in over 25 states, from coast to coast and border to border.
