    Default Large Wade & Butcher 3-Blade Folding Pocket Knife, Stag Scales

    Offering a large Wade & Butcher 3-blade folding pocket knife, 3-5/8" spear point main blade, 2" spey and drop-point blades on the opposite end. The scales are natural stag with a nickel silver shield-shaped escutcheon, and the bolsters are nickel silver. The knife is in excellent condition, with no staining or blebishes. There are two steel springs, one for each of the small blades and they are doubled up for the main blade. The main blade is heavily stamped with 'WADE & BUTCHER' and the trademark circle-b, arrow, and Maltese cross. All three blades are stamped 'Wade & Butcher' in an arc over 'XCD' on the tang. The knife appears to be post-World War II production.

    Asking $65.00 with free shipping via Priority Mail to the continental United States; APO, FPO, and international addresses will be shipped at cost. If you are interested, post your claim here as per the rules and send me a PM. Questions are welcome, and thanks to SRP for offering this service to members!

    I have no way of knowing either answer. I have listed and photographed every mark on the knife, and indicated that I believe it to be recent (post-WWII) production.

    Reduced to $50.00 - I think that this is probably a fairer price for this knife.

    That’s a great price for the knife, I just happened to buy a knife last month; can’t get another one now.
