Summary: as rare as rare can be, this is a set of three Big 7 prototypes with script signed blades and different handle variations. All have hand carved Osage wood handles with two piece Loveless-style pins, all are drilled / lined for a lanyard. All three blades with “Prototype” script (see photo 5), all three are in near mint to mint condition with nothing but light tarnish on the brass pins.
5 photos for review – each comes in it’s own carry case. These have been tucked away for decades, a rare opportunity to pick up three different prototypes in Jimmy’s favorite model! Originally from the collection of the late Tom Clinton, an unheard of price for less than a thousand a piece. And for the record: I’m not splitting up the set. Check them out – thanks and good luck.
