    Chicom fighting knife/letter opener

    Going through a box of my brothers old knick knacks I found not only the owners manuel to the thutty thutty but a odd looking knife that seemed like might be a hit with any folks with a knife fetish on here. Its sharp enough to peel a grape. How much is it worth and who wants to buy it? Thanks.

    That's awesome @bigwheel

    Wonder if someone with a special knife polishing skill might want to pony up some of his/her retirement money for this jewell?

    If not priceless at the very least $4 plus shipping on Ebay
    That's without a mirror edge finish though

    That's a real cool blade man. That should be polished, does anybody know someone?

    If this item is in the "heirloom" category, I wouldn't do anything to it. In fact, depending on its age and value I might not even polish out minor surface rust. A pit might be deeper than perceived.

    Having said that, I know lots of guys who got a knife handed down to them by their grandfathers and decided to use the knife in the field. To that I would watch the metal parts for this surface rust. If it's this old it might be more non-stainless steel.

    I've seen some knives that were placed into their sheaths for storage, and had the blade pit.

    Very nice. Looks to me like it came straight from Middle-earth, or leastwise best of the best from Cutlery Corner.

    $239.95 in retail value, i'd say.

    Best kept over the mantle. Don't sell.

    Annie, if this is your new profession, please hurry over to my knife vault! I bought most of those knives for 40 bucks years ago, and I wonder just what they are worth now! I was on the "polishing end" of the process...
