Tony Bose Prototype Slip Joint (#1)

"Hey Jon-- I started using that stamp in 1980 I think--if I thought it would have mattered then, I would have kept better track of what I did. Ha!" Tony Bose

Folks, this is an early Prototype (Back Pocket?) from Tony...It has been carried and used but it 90% good as new--so it is collectable, carryable and useable.

  • The definition of "Pocket-Worn" Stag
  • Nice Walk and Talk...softer (easier) than Tony's current standard
  • Specs: 2 7/8" Blade, 6 7/8" OAL; 3.05 Ounces
  • Condition: Functions (opens, closes, seats, & cuts) great...but looks like it might have shared a pocket for a long time with some Keys. Scuffs on the Blade & Bolsters, Some Aesthetic Dings and Scrapes on the Liners, Blade has been Sharpened.
One more note, Tony Bose won't work on it...
"Jon that is a piece of my history...and I am afraid I could screw it up in trying to refurb it. A recent knife I can refabricate whatever is needed...but that one I might not be able to."

I will entertain your offer (trade or cash) if you would like to put this one in your collection or pocket.
