BIG Hand Forged Oyster or Clam Shucking Knife. Measuring right close to 9 3/4" long, the blade is 3", the handle is 1" wide, 1/2" thick, and it weighs 15 oz unboxed. Not signed as to the maker. Good shape, usual light patina. The blade has a little bit of a bend to it but nothing serious. This was forged cause you can see some of the blue fire scale still on the handle. These hand forged ones are getting right hard to come by. Flat Rate shipping of $6.25 anyw in the USA with optional insurance. Right good collectible old oyster knife!

If any or all of the above bother's ya, well then we ain't got no reason to be doing business.

(Formally known as The Fine Print)
Priority Mail items less than $50 are sent at actual shipping & with Delivery Confirmation plus a small charge for packing. Insurance is optional. Smaller items are sent via 1st Class mail with Delivery Confirmation at a flat rate which includes the cost of the padded mailer which I do NOT get for free (and they get more expensive as they get bigger in size so that is factored in as well) and the extra packing time. For 1st Class,insurance is also optional. The only exception for both Priority and First Class are items that I feel are fragile enough that warrant insurance. I only ship via the Post Office. I do not ship UPS or Fedex (and they sure ain't any cheaper).Ebay has been running promotions for sellers offering free shipping. If an item is not listed with free shipping, t is no way for me to take advantage of that promotion. Otherwise the shipping is as shown on the listing. I spend a lot of time and money in gas out buying these items, over and above the actual cost of the the item, and that is year round. I am always happy to combine shipping on multiple items, These are sent out at actual cost plus a small packing fee (which rarely goes over $2.00 no matter how many items unless t is something big or odd). PA buyers must add 6% sales tax or provide an exemption certificate. International bidders are welcome. International shipping is EXPENSIVE . On average 2 to 3 times what the listed USA shipping cost is. International shipments have a minimum $1.50 US packing fee in addition to the shipping costs. Email me for ashipping quote before placing a bid or a Buy-It-Now. Please allow at least 24 hrs for me to get you oversea's shipping costs. The same applies for shipping quotes before an item ends. Items over 1 lb in weight tend to get very expensive to ship internationally. Items that are over 4 lbs packaged weigh ARE very expensive to ship.Customs Declarations are at face value. I do not mark items as gifts. Do not hit the Instant Payment if you are buying multiple items until I get you a combined invoice. I prefer to have things cleared up every 10 days to 2 weeks. Just please email me, and tell me that you are either bidding or going to be bidding on other items (I don't need to know which ones). Feedback. I leave feedback about once a week or so. Don't get excited if I don't leave you feedback right away. Just easier to sit down and do a bunch at a time for me. Any questions, feel free to email me. However, please keep in mind that I am NOT on-line 24 hours a day. Thank you. The free listing tool. List your items fast and easy and manage your active items.
