A bit of a backstory. So...about two years ago, I was at an estate sale and saw this knife, in the sheath laying on a table. I picked it up, slid it out of the sheath and saw "KINFOLKS" on the tang. Never heard of them.
So I said to myself; 'self, you better grab this right now, because this just might be something special.' So I did...for $15.00. The knife itself was in pretty darn good shape and I gave myself an estimate of it probably being at least a 60's - 70's knife. I did some research and came across http://www.kinfolksinc.com
and discovered my knife is a model 340F and made in the 60's. The sheath is the original sheath, which is sweet...that makes it all the more collectible. imho
Leather rounds on the handle are still tight, no rotting; however, there are some gaps between some of the rounds. The blade doesn't appear to have been used much, albeit, there are noticeable scratches. The pommel and guard are in very good condition.
Anyway...just wanted to share a nice find. Pics below.
