Rare Early W. Germany Hubertus Marked Italian Classic

Rare Vintage (1970's era) "HUBERTUS" Italian  Classic  with Black Composition (Plastic) Handles. 

This piece was made specifically for the German market in the 1970's and features a 3 1/4" standard flat ground blade made of 440 Series stainless.  Swivel Bolster design.  

It is a standard (4 7/8" closed), sized classic, but since Germany had a blade length limitation at that time, (and more restrictive laws since), the blade only measures 3 1/4" (normally 3 3/4"), for this sized model, making it highly unusual collector's piece.. Tang is marked " ROSTFREI". The Blade is etched with the Hubertus Name & Logo along with "W. Germany". Hubertus contracted with the Italians to manufacture this piece. This model is nowhere near the quality of their Lever action models or even the quality of current Italians we offer from Beltrame or Campolin. This model is collectible only because it has the Hubertus name etched on it and it is extremely rare. It's the ony one we ever seen and we've been doing this for nearly 35 years..(Note: Boker offered a similar model also).

This early model also features stainless liners, (current models are brass ). It is very hard to find these now, (this model is from 1972-1984),  unless someone unloads one from a collection. Great addition to your Italian or German collection as they would often contract with the Italians and French on different models.  Very Nice/Near Mint Piece! A piece of Hubertus history that is 50 years old! Includes a custom zippered pouch.
