This little slipjoint is from a small village in India. I believe it is from the state of Rajasthan, and the engraving states is was handcrafted. I believe this indicates it was made by a government-funded workshop. I have no idea how old this little 14.4 cm knife is, but it's definitely seen some use!

The blade is hand forged carbon steel and has patina from use. It has also been sharpened and has a toothy edge. The bolster is carbon steel, and the handles are all brass with a carbon steel backspring.

The engraving indicates the town where it was made and that it was handcrafted. The bail is also iron or carbon steel and is pinned in a manner rarely seen nowadays.

There is some up and down play when the knife is open.

The blade isn't quite centered when closed.

This is a very rare knife and I will probably never be able to find another like it! 1.5 oz. $49.
