This Jay Bigler knife is one of my dad's earliest folding knives, easily discerned because there is no locking mechanism. It can also be dated by the stamp that he used on it – “Jay Bigler Maker Anna, IL”, which puts it in the years from 2001 to 2004. Therefore, this knife was probably made 2001, maybe even 2002. The handle looks like reddish-brown wood, but it's not – it's a synthetic material. When closed the knife is 4.5”; opened, it's 7.5” with a 3” blade.

Thank you for your interest in this knife. My father, 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 of the materials that he used.

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.

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 30 states, from coast to coast and border to border.
