Up for auction is a nice vintage Schrade #499 fixed blade hunting knife. It has a 4-7/16" long blade and an overall length of 8-3/4". It is in very good, used condition. The blade has some light scratches on it but it comes to a nice point and is very sharp. The handle is in great shape with all the leather wraps intact. The brass end cap and brass ferrule have a pattern to them (kind of like fish scales on the ferrule and a hammered copper look on the end cap) and 2 marks on the end cap that I can't identify. It is a very solid and well balanced knife and would make a great addition to anyone's collection. Sold with NO RESERVE!Please check out the other knife I have listed - shown in the last photo. I will combine on shipping! - - - Important – Please read: Many of the pieces I sell are vintage and although I try to describe everything I see, I am not an expert and some things I think of as insignificant may be very important to you, so please email me with any questions first. If you would like additional photos, please include your email address . For this reason, returns are only accepted if I have made a grievous error in my description. If I don’t offer “Buy-it-Now” - please DO NOT ask me to do so. Payment & Shipping Information PayPal payment is due within 3 days of the auctions end. I ship Priority Mail (because the boxes are free, I don’t have to hunt for them). Please add for insurance if desired. I pack well (read my feedback) but I am not responsible for items that are not insured. $1.00 handling fee includes .65¢ US Post Office Delivery Confirmation (so yes, I make .35¢ to help cover some costs; packing stuff, gas, etc). Local pick-up is not available unless unusually large or heavy. International Buyers – Please Note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. Communication & Feedback I will send out invoices if needed, but I include actual shipping charges on all my listings, just use the shipping calculator to figure out what yours will be. Remember, shipping is not only based on weight but also on the size of the box needed. I will combine shipping best I can on multiple wins. In that case, I will send you an invoice. Feedback will be left after I know that you have received your item, not upon receipt of payment . I try my best to be accurate and honest in my descriptions, answer all questions, send additional photos if requested, pack well and ship promptly. If any issues arise, please allow me to work with you to resolve them. Leaving negative feedback should be a last resort. And definitely not the place to let me know I’ve made an error without allowing me to resolve it.
