Found in pawn shop today

I'm not really a collector but I buy knives that appeal to me or to use in the field. Found this set today at a pawn shop. Can anyone give me any info on it? Year? Does it have any collector value before I throw it in my hunting bag? Blades dont look to have ever been sharpened.

Great find! It belongs to you so do as you wish. But personally I'd just hang on to it.

These are no where in the same area as the combo knife-axe. I sold an identical one in unused condition for $125 two years ago after trying to get $150 for a couple years. Being as a good modern hunting knife can cost over a hundred bucks, I'd say use it if you like. I don't find that Case 5F knife the best design for all around hunting/camp work myself but I am sure some do.

That is a charming set in nice condition. I would not use it up but, as has been said, each owner needs to decide. Not super high dollar but just nice. I would be fondling it occasionally and just having it around somewhere handy to look at. Just me.

Gunsil is right. The Knife-ax combo sets having a knife and hatchet that fit interchangeably into a single handle bring a lot, but sets like yours sell on eBay occasionally, and bring around $125-$150. Curious that your knife and hatchet don’t exhibit use but the sheath looks worn. Maybe just aging of the leather?

For a useful tool yours is a lot more practical IMHO. But the collector value just doesn’t drive up the price like the Knife-ax sets, which although less useful are more collectable.

Very nice. I have one that is very similar. Your set, your choice. Mine only gets displayed.
