Western USA S-531 "C" Westlock Lockback Knife Sheath & Box 1979 Diamond Shield BULL ELK
Western USA S-531 "C" Wood Westlock Lockback Knife with sheath in box.
This knife is from the series Western called the "NATURE" etchings. I have an advertisement from 1979 that proclaims this knife has
"More Quality Features than any other lock blade at an price". It goes on to describe those features. "Enclosed trouble free lock spring system (Patent No. 4,040,181), 440 series stainless steel, takes and holds a keen edge, Blade is double swedged for better point, Heavy duty pivot pin, Nickel silver bolsters on both ends for strength and beauty, Slim handle is wide and form fitting for grip control"
This knife has "C" for 1979 stamped on the tang. This knife has the magnificent Bull Elk etched on the blade. The elk etch was only used for the first three years of production. This knife also has the composition handles with the diamond shield on the front. These handles were also done for only the first three years. It may not sound like much, but it means every other one of these style knives Western made after 1979 had wooden handles, that was the only choice.
This knife comes with everything shown in the first picture, Sheath, Box, original literature.
Since I live in Colorado, I have collected these knive for years. I have a couple dozen of these knives and if there is a specific etch you want, contact me, I am sure I have at least one of each etch
