Unique nickel silver Swing Guard folds down with the blade. Blade has nice lockup. Very little up and down/side to side blade play. Blade shows pitting and scratches on both sides. Some of the pitting on the front side, is heavy.  But the Etch is still faintly readable. Handles look very nice! No rivet cracks. Safety does not work.  Good condition overall=5 on a number scale of 1-10..

It is extremely difficult to find one with a blade etching  (although it is extremely faint.)  (Usually when found this model is beat up because they were heavily used.) Custom zippered pouch included. A must for your vintage collection!
