That is an awesome knife. Having the patent #makes it a pretty early one. Here's a Cargill bolster lock with out the patent from 1980. I would say yours is 1979 or older. I guess I'm in line behind the rest of the guys if you ever want to part with it.

Due to the fact that this knife makes my entire collection look bad,

and my oldest daughter needs braces this month, this will go on Ebay Thursday night at 8pm Central.

Thanks for your interest!
