I picked this folder up at a swap meet near Seattle, decades ago.

This lil ol Asian gal had a large jewelry box opened up on a table for folks to rummage through. The moment I picked it up it felt special. I motioned to the seller what I had, "one dolla" she said.

It's about 4" when folded, 8" opened. Stag scales, Sterling silver hilt, guard and bolster. It's a good steel, holds its edge and sharp as a razor. When open, she locks solid and has no play.

 Tang reads: Henry Sears Co. Prussia (Pennsylvania)

A little research tells me this knife was built between 1865-1879. 150 years old, built to last, built with American pride.

Valued somewhere between $1 "dolla" and priceless. My youngest daughter loves knives and she's already asked for this one.
