This slip-joint canoe shaped folding knife is in excellent condition. The bolsters show some minor wispy surface handling marks from storage. It has never been used or sharpened. It is from a collection, and has only been handled and admired. The blade is made from 154CM
stainless steel with a satin finish, and the front and rear bolsters are nickel silver. I am not certain what wood type was used for the handle. It is dark (perhaps Desert Ironwood or Cocobolo), with nice grain. The knife features a half-stop, filework along the spine of the blade, and dovetailed bolsters. The forward nail nick has a firm yet smooth pull, and the blade has that great "snap" that accompanies all of Ray's folders. The blade lock-up is tight with no play, and it is aligned in the handle.
Condition: Previously owned. Excellent condition.
