Be sure to INCLUDE ITEM #. We would love to add you to our list of happy buyers! This is a HUGE, VINTAGE, CASE TESTED XX LONG TAIL C, MADE IN ONLY 1920-39 MODEL 3172 POCKET KNIFE. It is extremly rare to find one of these period and even harder with yellow handles. It is closed 5 3/8" and 9 5/8" with master blade open.
The knife blade is snug when open (no wobble) or closed and snaps shut well. The GORGEOUS old yellow handle has no pin cracks or chips just a few tiny scratches. It has nice bolsters with brass spring liners(see pics for detail), 4 brass pins on each handle side.
The blade is very full, has been buffed and has light scratches. Its not mint but near excellent for its age. As most of you already know when they made these, the huge handle hides some of the tang stamp when open.
They were all that way in this model you can see enough to tell its a long tail C tested stamp. "See Pics" They did not put pattern numbers on these at that time. A great very rare knife to add to your collection.
This is not a reproduction it is the real deal! WELL MADE WITH GOOD OLD CASE STEEL! All sizes are approximate unless stated exact.
