IMPROVED HUNTER STYLE No.1 NEFT SAFETY KNIFE. MEASURES 5 1/4" CLOSED WITH A 4 1/4" BLADE - 9 1/2" OVERALL OPEN (NOT INCLUDING THE BAIL). THE BAKELITE HANDLES ARE FLAWLESS AND LIKE NEW, AND ARE A DEEP DARK MILITARY OR HUNTER GREEN. I HAVE SEEN A FEW OF THESE OVER THE YEARS BUT HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE WITH THIS COLOR HANDLES. THE HANDLES ARE IMPRINTED "NEFT SAFETY KNIFE" ON BOTH SIDES. IT HAS NICKEL SILVER BOLSTERS, BAIL, FINGER GUARD, AND SLIDING SAFETY SHIELD. POLISHED STEEL CLIP POINT BLADE STILL HAS THE FULL ETCHING WITH DOG IMAGE FAIRLY CLEAR ON THE BLADE FACE AS SEEN IN THE PICTURES (BETTER IN REAL LIFE). THE BLADE HAS BEEN SHARPENED BUT IS STILL PRETTY FULL WITH SOME SCRATCHES FROM USE AND A FEW SPOTS OF PATINA. THE BLADE TANG READS "NEFT SAFETY KNIFE" over "STYLE No.1" over "MADE IN USA" - AND THE INSIDE OF THE HANDLE IS STAMPED WITH THE NEFT SAFETY KNIFE TRADEMARK AND PATENT DATE OF NOV.9, 1920 AS SEEN IN THE PICTURES. THE BAIL IS FIRMLY ATTACHED, AND THE FINGER GUARD IS ALSO STILL FIRMLY ATTACHED (I HAVE SEEN A FEW WITH THE BAIL AND OR FINGER GUARD MISSING OR DAMAGED). THE BOLSTERS ARE VERY NICE WITH NO SCRATCHES OR DINGS. THE KNIFE CAN BE OPENED BY SLIDING BACK THE SPRING LOADED SHIELD WHICH THEN OPENS THE KNIFE BY ANOTHER SPRING ACTION SO YOU CAN THEN PIVOT THE BLADE INTO THE OPEN POSITION AND THEN CLOSE IT LOCKING THE BLADE IN PLACE. YOU CAN DO ALL THIS WITH ONE HAND WITH A LITTLE PRACTICE BY PULLING BACK THE SHIELD -POPPING IT OPEN- AND WITH A FLICK OF THE WRIST IT'S IN THE OPEN POSITION - THEN JUST SNAP IT SHUT TO LOCK IT UP. YOU ARE THEN READY TO DRESS THAT GAME BIRD OR SKIN THAT BUCK - UNLESS YOU ARE A COLLECTOR WHO WILL JUST DISPLAY IT, SHOW IT OFF, AND NEVER USE IT LIKE MOST OF US ON THIS SITE. IT CAN EASILY BE CLOSED WITH ONE HAND TOO. THERE ARE A FEW OF THESE STILL AROUND, BUT IT'S RARE TO FIND ONE IN GOOD CONDITION. THE PICTURES AREN'T VERY GOOD BECAUSE I JUST COULDN'T GET THE RIGHT LIGHT IN THESE PICTURES. THIS KNIFE SHINES MUCH BRIGHTER AND LOOKS REALLY NICE IN REAL LIFE. SO DON'T MESS AROUND AND MISS THIS FAMOUS AMERICAN CLASSIC HUNTING KNIFE OF SUCH A UNIQUE DESIGN. **PLEASE ASK IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS TO ASSURE YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION BEFORE BIDDING / BUYING. ~ BY BIDDING / BUYING YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE AN ADULT AND ALLOWED TO OWN THIS ITEM IN YOUR LOCATION .
