The button on the sheath is brown which kind of gives it away that it's vintage. The sheath is in relatively poor shape, but it is old and leather. Needs to be replaced or restitched. The owner doesn't remember when he got this knife but says it was old when he got it ages ago. I'm not going to clean up the blade or sharpen it as Randall collectors like it dirty.
Or so I've been told. Original, as found condition, anyway. This piece is on consignment so there is no return. This item is available for sale locally at Hawthorne Cutlery and local antique and knife shows in the Portland, OR area.If we ever have them again. Hawthorne Cutlery is open Tuesday thru Sat. From 11ish to 4ish during this pandemic. Masks are mandatory but clothing is optional.
A good sense of humor is required, also. Don't forget the Antique Japanese Sword Shows the might still happen around the country.
The first is in August (maybe) at the San Francisco Airport Marriott and the second is in Orlando and that date has tentatively been set for Oct. Both are wonderful three day shows. Not offered internationally unless you consider Orlando to be international. It's not, it's just Florida. Check out my other interesting knife listings!
