Case XX USA (1965-69) Red Bone 62009 1/2 barlow. Master blade is in the front. During the USA years Case barlows were manufactured both with the master blade in front and in the back. Beautiful old red bone handles. 3 3/8 inch closed. Stamped nickle silver bolsters. The lines and markings in the handles are natural grooves and imperfections in the bone. The handles are perfect. The blades are 100% but t is some "spider webbing" and light spotting, primarily on the master blade. The blades could easily be buffed out. Other than that and some light scratching on the back bolster the knife is perfect so I'll call it near mint.I'm selling my entire collection of over 100 Case 009 1/2 barlows, from pre-Tested to the modern era. If you collect barlows check my other auctions and keep an eye out for future auctions. I've been collecting Case knives for almost 30 years and I describe each knife honestly and I point out anything that I perceive as a flaw or imperfection to the best of my ability. If you have any questions about the quality of the knives I'm selling please check my feedback. I also combine shipping for multiple purchases.
