knife - K-60-a-flash knife - K-60-a-back-flash

knife 1480

Small knife with tapered, slightly dropped point blade with full through tang. Wooden scales and latten haft strip surrounding the wooden scales cleaned, but without repairs. latten haft strips are rare. These seem to be attached by soldering the edge strip to the edge of the tang. The wooden scales are recessed into the edge strip. The wood is now basically flush with the edge strip - this may not have been the case originally. Scales secured by 3 pins, two obviously copper alloy, one possibly iron. Ex. Col. Simon Moore #87.70
