This is an OLDIE!  Probably dates from the '30's.  Front tang is stamped KA-BAR and the back is stamped Union Cut. Co.  This is a huge folder.  Measures 5" closed and 8 3/4" open.  The blade exhibits about 25% wear, but where are you going to find another???  Nickel silver bolsters and oval shield.  The shield bears the KA-BAR mark also.  Nice pick bone brown handles.  There is a hairline crack about 1/2" long on the front handle from the upper "rear" pin to the bolster.  On the back handle all three lower pins have hairline cracks.  The one closest to the top bolster is hairline and about 1/4" long.  The other two are about 3/4" long.  There is alwo some flaking at the bottom of the back handle, about 3/4" long and 1/16"-1/8" wide.  Sounds worse than it looks.  This is a RARE knife in any condition.  Ask for knife #P16.
