Kershaw 1050ANN (30th anniversary 1974-2004) help needed...

Kershaw began its foray into the knife business sometime during 1974. The company was originally based in Portland Oregon, but most early knives were manufactured in Japan. The first US manufacturing plant was opened in 1997 & the company currently offers knives made in the U.S., Japan, & China. Pete Kershaw (an ex Gerber salesman) started the business.

Kershaw 1050ANN (30th anniversary 1974-2004) help needed...

Hi folks,

I have some questions concerning the knife stated above:

- is it a real damascus blade or only an etched look-a-like one?
- is the handle made of laminated Pakka wood?
- what are the bolsters made of?
- is it an integral construction (i.e. liners and bolsters are one piece)?

...and last not least...

HOW MUCH SHALL I PAY FOR IT??? ::shrug::

Thanks in advance for your input ::tu::

Cheers from Germany.

EXACTLY my opinion, Jim. ::nod::

And because of the fact that even the "normal" version of the 1050 is built like a Mercedes Benz this one should be a Rolls Royce, huh? :mrgreen:
