It is in generally good used condition. KNIFE - The knife is engraved with WESTERN, Boulder Colo. It has some minor rust and needs to be cleaned. The handle is in good condition and solidly attached to the blade.
FILE - The BEAR file is in fair condition with surface rust but should clean-up with some TLC. STONE - The NORTON stone is solid and also shows some wear as can be seen on the photos. The leather, has a lightly imprinted BEAR logo on the belt loop, is scuffed up and needs to be cleaned but there are no holes or significant damage to the 60+ year old leather.
The leather strip and snap on the knife holder is solid and secure. As a kid, I also printed my name in magic marker on the back. Maybe that adds to the value?
