Scarce Model 2-6" Turquoise

Had an opportunity to purchase this 1980/81 vintage Model 2-6" with a 50's narrow choil blade grind. Not only is that somewhat unusual in and by itself, but it also has a reconstituted Black Web Turquoise and Gold Flake handle, black and brass spacers and a smooth brass coolie cap!

I hope you enjoy looking at it!







Through the years I have seen very few of these Model 2's with the throwback blade shape! Honestly, just ONE other with an Ivory handle!

Hopefully DW will comment on how such an early style blade ended up on a knife 30 years later - so to speak.
Maybe somebody in the shop was wishing for 'the old days'!!

I recall the rumors of the shop doing some of these way back when..... I know of an Ivory handled one as well.
