1980s vintage. Purchased new from a collection, and I have used it a bit. Still has Original edge (never resharpened) and its sharp. It has some patina on the blade from use. Patina on the blade looks worse in the pics than it is because when i tried to take pics it was very hard to see unless I used a filter to edit and bring out the detail, But i’d rather it look worse in pics and better in person so you’re not disappointed. Rugged stitched leather sheath and original unused India sharpening stone included. Great classic knife thats meant to be used.
