This is a great hunting set of two (2) knives from Dave Ricke of West Bend, WI. Both knives are full-tang construction. Not sure of the blade steel, but Dave uses both 440C and ATS-34. They both have a satin finish. The larger knife has a nickel silver bolster, and the smaller knife does not have a bolster.The handles are the same unknown wood - but nice grains and color. The larger knife is pinned in 2 places with mosaic pins, and has a lanyard hole. The smaller knife is pinned in 3 places with plain pins and no lanyard hole. Both handles have red liners. Both knives are marked with the number "629" on the spine. They come with a piggyback sheath made by Bob Schrap of Wauwatosa, WI. This is Bob's deluxe panel sheath, made from pigskin. Both knives are in excellent, unused condition. The bolster of the larger knife has some fine faint marks from insertion and removal from the sheath. This knife comes from a life-long collection of knives that were well-taken care of, and with very few exceptions, properly stored. It is clean - never used or sharpened. You are always welcome to contact me for additional pictures. We will consider, and respond to all reasonable Best Offers on any knife. Never used, carried or sharpened.
