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, all are 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 Whittler, three-blade, slip-joint, folding knife.  The main blade is a modified Dao shape, another is a Pen blade, and the third is a Sheepfoot.  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.  The front and rear bolsters, and liners, are most likely nickel silver.  The handle scales are natural stag, both in perfect condition.  The blades open with a nail nick, and each has a half-stop.  The pulls are firm and smooth, and each blade closes with a snap.  Each blade locks up tight with no play when opened.  All the blades are aligned and not touching / rubbing when fully closed.  The all passed my "dollar bill" test - I was able to pass a crisp $1.00 bill between each of the blades and liners.  The Dao blade is a tad off center.  You may find a few stray micro scratches, if you examine the blades under magnification.  The knife has never been used, carried or sharpened.  The bolsters are in excellent condition, with nothing more than some wispy storage marks and a bit of 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 surface.

Condition:  Previously owned.  Excellent.
