I am the original owner of this knife. T were only 250 Mother of Pearl Jaguar knives made by Case with the 2000 tang stamp. This is a 2000 Case XX Mother of Pearl 5181 SS SG Jaguar Knife. Knife is approximately 5 and 1/4 inches closed. Knife has never been used, carried or sharpened. The pearl panels at front and rear nearest swing guard have some "fire". T are some scratches in and around the word JAGUAR on the blade. T is light blade rub near the tip of the front and back side of blade. No cracks in the mother of pearl handles. T are marks on each side of liner and pin point size chips in handles w tip of swing guard touches liner when blade is closed. No other chips noted. Stainless steel blade is tight and has good snap. Swing Guard is tight. Box has end of year date 12/13/99 date and stamp is 2000 (that's the way it came to me new). The upper tang line has .x.x. and the lower tang line has X.X. that can be seen. You can not see the last X on the lower tang line as the swing guard blocks its view. Take a look at my other knives up for auction. Read my feedback and bid with confidence. I ship promptly upon receipt of payment.
