I aquired this knife from an estate and am selling it as I found it. I am not in the knife business and I do not know how old it is. It measures 15-1/2 inches long overall and comes with a matching sheath also marked Edge Brand. The blade is marked Edge Brand Solingen Germany 447. It has been cleaned by the previous owner and t is still some blade discoloration. T is a tiny nick in the blade edge that cound be worked out. I have no desire or do I intend to attempt to describe every little flaw and detail. Look at the pictures. Sold as is. High bidder pays shipping cost via Priority Mail U.S. Payment by Paypal only. Payment within 7 days of end of auction. I will not be responsible for items once they are shipped . It is the buyers responsiblity to request insurance if desired. Sorry, No international sales.
