Summary: great knife, don’t let the price fool you. It appears unused but has been lightly and carefully sharpened, hence the sellers adjusted price point. His loss is your gain, it’s worth more and I told him so. Enough said!
The bead blasted blade finish is in excellent shape, I noticed a few light scratches at the tip on both sides. Quite light, you can see them in the first few photos. A few light scuffs, etc. on the lugged guard, the black cord wrap looks great. Compass in the butt cap functions as it should.
The Sullivan sheath is in excellent+++ condition with just a few light handling marks and small scuffs. Quite nice, actually... Lile shop stamp on the back and the original thigh lanyard at the toe. Not much in the way of knife storage, just a small dent at the throat. The EZ Lap sharpener had some tarnish on it but cleaned up nicely.
8 photos for review -- as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. All said and done, this is a great buy on a knife that’s probably never been in the field. Razor sharp, someone put a really nice edge on this one. Perfect for use or collection purposes, at this price it’s a no brainer. Thanks and good luck.
