Soulmanticore what is the year on that pearl sunfish. I have seen that knife before and knew that it got sold. Glad to know it is in good hands.

1986 I think. It’s pretty well hidden by the bolster. I bought it 2 years ago at the carpenters hall in st Louis. He has some rare ones but he is more of a collector. Which means I gave a nice chunk of change to get this one. He has the 8 blade black pearl barrel knife, and it not going anywhere unless you have money to burn
