I am not sure about the age of this knife. It is of Italian origin and I have never seen another one like it. Bolsters are in excellent condition. Blade shows some slight scratches as seen in the photo. Looks like it has never been sharpened. Still closes tight, fires strong, and locks up every time with minimal blade play. During the time it has been in my collection, I have always stored it open to preserve the spring (as I do with all my folding automatics.)
Very Good to Excellent condition for this rare knife that could be a fine addition the the collection of any Italian S/B afficionado.
Thanks for looking, and please visit my other auctions.
