Windy City Knives recently acquired a relatively large collection of single and multi-blade slip-joint folders, all made by the late Robert "Bob" Enders of Cement City, MI.  They came from a life-long collection of knives that were well-taken care of, and properly stored.  There are varying patterns, and in general, are all in excellent condition.  They have all been inspected and checked for fit, finish, functionality and condition.  Please take the time to carefully read the complete description of each.  Bob Enders passed away in December 1999.  His knives have become very desirable, and highly collectible.
 
This is a Bob Enders Clasp Knife or small Hunter, single blade, slip-joint, knife.  The blade is a clip point.  The highly polished blade steel is most likely ATS 34, a stainless steel often used by Mr. Enders.  The is marked "R. Enders Maker" inside the outline of the state of Michigan.  The front and rear bolsters and liners, are most likely nickel silver.  The handle scales are dyed green jigged bone, both in perfect condition.  The blade opens with a nail nick, and has a half-stop.  The pull is firm and smooth, and the blade closes with a snap.  The blade is tight, with no wobble or movement in any direction.  The blade is well centered between the liners.  If you look hard enough, you'll find some stray micro scratches on the blade.  The liners are not relieved.  It has never been used, carried or sharpened.  The bolsters are in excellent condition, with nothing more than some wispy storage marks and patina from age.  There is a small oxidation spot on the front bolster, that you can see in the second to last photo.  It may buff out, if you decide to polish the bolster - can't say with certainty.  This is a solid knife, and a great EDC.  There is no case.  The knife will come securely packaged.  The shadows seen on the blade are creases from the light tent, reflecting on the polished blade finish.

Condition:  Previously owned.  Excellent.
