Summary: this is an original 1980's Timberline SB 5-3/4" hollow handle survival knife and original sheath. Serial #105SB, the knife is in excellent+++ or better condition, unused with original edges. There are a few very light marks on the blade, quite small and only visible in direct light. A few light scuffs on the guard that will probably buff out, I didn't want to mess with the finish and left them alone. The original brown handle wrap looks great – one very small area of abrasion on the back side near the butt cap. (see photo 6) The original pouch with survival gear still in the handle, looks like everything is there except for the two flies. Assume the basics: hooks, fishing line, sinkers, sparking flint, snare cord... everything to choke / feed / set yourself on fire if given enough time. All said and done, a very clean vintage piece in unused condition.
The sheath appears original to the knife and has the early Timberline Knives stamp with gray sharpening stone under the back flap. Overall condition of the sheath is excellent or better -- you'll find light scuffs and spots front and back that don't amount to much.
9 photos for review -- as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is a good time to be buying vintage collectible survival knives – these old SB's were selling for well over 1k a few years ago when the market was a bit more favorable. So, it goes without saying that this would not only be a great knife to buy for survival use, but also an excellent choice if you're buying for long term price appreciation. Thanks and good luck..
