I am offering this Beautiful Case 1976 Stag Double Eagle Bowie Hunting Knife pattern #523-7SS. This knife commemorates the "The American Spirit" of the 1976 Bicentennial. The blade is nicely engraved with our nations symbol "The Bald Eagle and a leafy banner that reads "The American Spirit '76" with "Double Eagle". The etch is colored blue and red, though appears to have some color loss or fade. This beauty earned its name as the double eagle knife because of the beautiful eagle engraving on the blade and the stunning large thick nickel silver eagle head pommel. The job of doing the finish polishing of this knife was very dangerous to the cutler due to the potential of the eagle beak getting caught in a large fast moving buffing wheel. This knife has a satin brushed 420 surgical stainless steel full tang blade that maintains its original edge. The etch side of the blade tang is stamped CASE XX Stainless USA 1964. It is evident Case used stored 1964 blades to produce this 1976 Bicentennial knife which makes it even more special. Only 2,500 of these knives were produced. The backside of the blade tang is stamped with pattern #523-7SS. The finger guard and eagle pommel are nickel silver. The scales are georgous deep rutted India stag with two brass spun pins that are free from cracks or chips. The overall length of this knife is 11 3/4". The blade is 6 7/8" long and 3/16" thick I do not have a sheath or box for this knife. This knife has never been used and is in very good condition. It is close to excellent, though due to the color on the etch fading and some typical light handling scratches on the blade I rate it very good. Actual knife being offered in photos.
