Summary: this is the vintage 1980's Timberline Survival Folder #157SX in near mint condition. Original edge and has not been resharpened – blade is flawless. You'll find a few very light marks on the aluminum bolsters, all very minor and would easily buff away. Long story short: this is a very, very clean vintage Timberline survival folder in unused condition.
Blade Length: 3-1/8". Overall (open) length: 7-1/2"
The original Timberline sheath has the hex tool to remove the scales, I didn't mess taking photos of the scales off, everything is there underneath all sealed tight. For reference, I've included a photo off the internet of what the “scales off” look like and what’s stored inside them. (see photo 8) The sheath is in near mint to mint condition, a couple of very light scuffs that are extremely minor.
8 photos total for review – as shown, a new black suede carry case included for knife storage. In the 1987 Cutlery Shoppe Catalog the Timberline SX Survival Folder is shown on page 22 with the retail price at $390. These original SX's have appreciated over the years, I’ve seen some sell on eBay upwards of $700. Suffice to say, this folder / sheath package is priced quite well, a great package perfect for any knife collection. Thanks and good luck.
