My Most Amazing Knife ~ Large Photo
I don't really collect knives though I love them all. I only own eight knives.
Six of them are fairly common & modern "working" blades.
One is an older CASE XX hunting knife that is a "hand me down" from a passed friend.
This one is the only rareish one. It's a personal "treasure" of mine. I actually only bought it a few years ago. I just could not pass it up. I'm guessing that it's fairly valuable but I've never had it appraised. The condition of the actual blade is not good at all. The ivory handle has somehow survived intact.
I honestly don't even care what it's worth since it's so damn neat!
It has more value to me than the dollar worth so I'll (for sure) never sell it.
My nephew will eventually own it at some future point in time.
I keep it in the bank S.D.B. with some other truly neat things I'm saving just for him. I still have lots of good years left (I hope) so he'll not be getting it for a while. I'm only going to leave the pic of it posted for a little while.
I just thought that if you folks love knives...you would really enjoy seeing it. It features a 6.5" nicely carved ivory handle & a nice tapered deadly dagger blade.
The detail is super nice on the fantastic "Grim Reaper" skeleton.
The blade is NOT patterned Damascus ~ it's forged but quite pitted plain carbon iron or steel.
The blade was silvered at one point a very long time ago. Only traces of it remain. That is what you are seeing on the blade traces of worn silver and darkish pits.
I am best guessing that the knife is 200 - 300 years old.
I'm asking you please to not copy the photo. I have personal reasons for not wanting any modern copies to be made of this knife.
