Summary: a very rare model SX with the drop point blade, per Vaughn Neeley one of only a few like this made. This knife has the original edge and has not been resharpened – blade is flawless. You'll find a few light wipe marks on the aluminum bolsters, all very minor and would easily buff away. Long story short: this is a very clean vintage Timberline survival folder in unused / near mint condition.

Blade Length: 3". 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.

Bonus: 550 paracord survival bracelet, size small.

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 find with the DP blade. Thanks and good luck.
