Knife is from individual that has been collecting knives for years. I am neither a connoisseur or a collector but I do have a few others listed and in process of listing at auction from same place if interested take a lookee!!..
I always combine shipping when possible. Just add $1.50 for each extra knife purchased for shipping purposes.
I attempt to point out anything I consider a flaw or something not visible in photos but sometimes it is difficult so, Email any Questions and Thanks for Looking!!
+Shipping in U.S. : $4.95 USPS Shipping.. Insurance is extra and is always $1.65 and is always a buyers option. .
+International Shipping : Actual cost plus $1.00 handling Fee.
+Everything I list for sale/auction I own. I do not do consignments for anyone unless specifically specified in description. Items are described honestly and sometimes with somewhat limited knowledge. I also sell AS FOUND unless stated in description. That includes any washing/cleaning/polishing/repairs etc..
**NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS**
Due to recent USPS postal realignment in shipping costs. ALL shipping costs have been increased in U.S. as well as international shipping. Everything is now via air mail. The ship(surface) option has been eliminated so transit times in most cases is less...I will still ship international for cost plus $1.00..If you are concerned with shipping costs I would suggest all buyers get a quote prior to bidding as I being the seller continue to be suprised at some shipping costs..Some of the costs are just silly but I cant help it..Sorry...
