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 large Folding Hunter, two-blade, slip-joint, knife.  The main blade is a clip point, and the other is a straight-back blade.  The highly polished blade steels are most likely ATS 34, a stainless steel often used by Mr. Enders.  The main blade is marked "R. Enders Maker" inside the outline of the state of Michigan, as well as "RE" on the ricasso.  The straight-back blade is also marked "RE" on its ricasso.  The front and rear bolsters, and liners, are most likely nickel silver.  The handle scales are dyed red, jigged bone, both in perfect condition.  The blades open with a nail nick, and each has a half-stop.  The pull is firm and smooth, and each blade closes with a snap.  The clip point blade locks up tight with no play when opened.  The straight-back blade has a slight "tick" side-to-side, if you try hard.  There is a center liner, and both blades are slightly off center, favoring the non-presentation side.  I was able to pass a crisp $1.00 bill on both sides of both blades, but the clip point blade was tight on the outside liner.  If you look hard enough, you'll find some stray micro scratches from the "flex" of opening the blades.  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.  This is a solid knife, and a great EDC.  There is no case.  The knife will come securely packaged.  The shadows seen on the blades are creases from the light tent, reflecting on the polished blade finish.

Condition:  Previously owned.  Excellent.
