One of the benefits of being first in the door of an estate sale is scoring vintage knives, like this 4 blade WESTERN.

The tang stamp reads:
WESTERN
BOULDER, COLO 
MADE IN USA

According to the Western tang stamp charts I've searched this stamp indicates production before 1961 making it at least 54 years old.
The blades are stainless and the main blade has my favorite blade profile – SPEAR POINT.

In addition there's the standard can opener, screwdriver/bottle opener blade, and an awl.  

The long nail pull on this stellar piece of steel is an indication af age as well….making it a mid century knife…..kinda half of an antique in age!

If you benefit from this info please be sure to pursue purchases through the links on my site…

Steel Sahlute!
