Kershaw Knives

Scarce Model #2050

Two Blade Lockback Knife

In Brushed Stainless Steel With Walnut Insets

Made by KAI Cutlery In Japan

MINT IN BOX - New Old Stock - From my Personal Collection / Inventory

Never Used, Never Carried, Never Sharpened, Never Displayed. Removed from box for the first time for the photos in this ad.

Rare Kershaw Model and the only one listed on eBay.

Two Blade Lockback Knife Measures 4 1/8" Closed. The Main Blade Only Has The Locking Action. The Secondary Blade Pivots At The Knife's Rear Bolster. I believe I acquired this knife in 1989. The date "1/89" on the paperwork reinforces my poor memory. This particular knife is not even listed on the included pamphlet, so I believe it was already retired when it was packaged at the factory.

The Main Blade Is High Grade AUS8 Cutlery Stainless and is a Drop Point Style and measures 3 1/8" long. It is tang stamped "KERSHAW" over "OREGON USA" on the obverse and "2050" over "JAPAN" on the reverse. The blade is precision ground and polish honed to a mirror finish. Comes with the Kershaw Shaving Sharp Guarantee.

The photos do not do the polish justice, you can actually see yourself clearly in the blades. I have yet to figure out how to capture the lustre of a highly polished blade in a photograph.

The Secondary Blade is a Clip Point Style and Measures 2 5/8" Long. It is just as sharp, and just as highly polished as the main blade.

Handle is Brushed Stainless Steel with Walnut Hardwood Insets. The knife is over 3/8" in Thickness.

Comes in the Original Kershaw Knives box as shown in the photo. The end flap of the box is turned up in the photo so you can read the name and model number. Includes Kershaw Guarantee and Knife Catalog Pamphlet.

Please take advantage of the Supersized Pictures to see the detail of this fine piece. The knife in the photos is the knife you are bidding on and will receive. I try to be thorough and photograph all knife features but if you desire a photo of another angle or feature just e-mail me and I will be happy to provide it. Factory lubricant is visible in the close-up photos.

I believe in the true auction. I begin my auctions with a minimal minimum opening bid and let the market set the price. I also will not end an auction early and accept an offer, however, you are encouraged to tempt me with a ridiculously high offer just to see if I will bend my own rule. If t is not a "Buy It Now" price listed I do not offer a buy it now option.

Do not bid if you are under 18 years of age. Do not bid if you live in a locality that prohibits ownership of a quality item like this. (You need to move or vote the idiots running your community out of office)

Tag me as a favorite seller as I will be offering many more quality and unique knives from my collection.
