Please read our Terms below for details. In terms of design, materials, craftsmanship, performance and condition, it has so much to offer that it's difficult to know where to start. The first thing one notices about it is its outstanding condition. Upon closer inspection, though, one starts to appreciate the genius of this design, which I've seen no other maker produce, and that is a shame because it's one of the most handy and verstile knives you'll ever own.
Whether you want it for hunting, daily carry, or anything else, there's virtually nothing it can't do. Enabling all of this to happen at warp speed is the fact that this knife was given a professionally applied edge for the purpose of this sale and is RAZOR sharp in a way that will surprise even many veteran users.
As you'd rightly expect from any Herder knife of this vintage, it's fine carbon steel blade is hand-forged and of the very highest quality. I own and use many German knives, many of them by this maker and I consider them to be King among German makers.
As with any carbon steel blade, of course, it must be kept dry to minimize oxidation but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance and ease of edge maintenance offered by carbon steel. Its handle is made of beautifully grained horn but it is not original to the knife.
It's expertly mounted on the knife and in excellent condition with no problems. Not only is this an aesthetic consideration but it's also warmer in the hand that wood or plastic.The oils from your hand will only enrich its appearance over time but if you put it into storage we recommend putting few drops of lanolin on it for preservation to keep it in its present condition. Its condition is also cause for amazement because this blade is well over 50 years old but as fresh and new as the day it was first forged. You won't have to hold this knife in your hand for more than a few moments before you'll be compelled to put it to work, whereupon you'll discover that our proud boasts of this knife's abilities were understated. Yes, it is THAT good--guaranteed. Measures 12" long with 7.5" blade but by any measure this is an instant heirloom that user and collector alike will be proud to pass along to their progeny.
