It just doesn't get much better than this. This is a beautiful old knife made with the classic carved ebony handle known as a thistle-top, offered here in absolutely excellent condition in its original leather tube-style belt sheath, which is also in superb condition--which is rare! It was made in Massachusetts by Russell in their Green River Works using African ebony of the very highest quality, hand-checkered like a gunstock for a sure grip every time. Blade is thick and sturdy carbon steel and the entire knife is a top-quality piece in every way. Condition is excellent--REALLY excellent--with none of the cracks that are usually found on thistle-top handles and none of the carved initials in the butt of handle that too often ruin an otherwise great one.
Though this is obviously a collector item of some value it would be a shame not to use it if you're able. Measures 9" long with a 4-3/8" blade--a very handy size for self-defense or backup carry, though if you choose only to display it in a collection, you'll be equally pleased with it. A great knife for use or display and one you're sure to think of as an heirloom.
