Russell Easler MOP "swinger" style

Russell Easler MOP "swinger" style from the early 90's. There is a bit of rust developing between the MOP and bolster on the left side. I suspect this was stored in the sheath in a humid location. I've cleaned the superficial areas as best possible. There looks to be a "slip" when the knife was sharpened because there appears to be a perpendicular belt scratches at this section. (I've done it too so I know what they look like.)

(I have one of his other pieces and appears that Russell buffed the edge following sharpening. The MOP swinger shows similar characteristics along the edge.)



Bolster rust pitting- do not store a knife in a leather sheath.


Very faint cross grind from sharpening:


6.50" OAL
3" blade
ATS-34
stainless bolsters
MOP scales

At Nordic Knives $275
