Steel is 7-1/2" in overall length and may be unused. It looks to be in perfect condition. The sheath is perfect as well and is beautifully made. T is no dryness, cracking, or verdigris at all.Just an exceptional piece! This knife is part of a huge lifetime collection that I'll be listing over the next several months. T are literally hundreds of pocket knives and fixed blade knives. The vast majority are very high quality knives. T are some incredible custom knives and many rare pieces. Most of the knives range from the early 1900's through about 1980. This collector had an eye for quality and many of the sheaths are exceptionally high quality customs. Check back frequently if these types of knives interest you.
