SHAPLEIGH HWD CO. ST. LOUIS , USA
Got this in the mail this AM. Its a SHAPLEIGH HWD CO. ST. LOUIS , USA with a 7/8's Blade. Closed knife is 6 1/2" open is 9 5/8 and I believe its half hollow, To me this is a big knife, my others are all smaller than this one. Can't wait to shave with this Bad Boy, not sure about the hollow though. Spine measures a full 3/16 across

It looks to be in excellent shape and should hone up to be a fine shaver. Good score!
