Summary: a great find and a very fair price on this 5” Jack Crider Special with pinned wood scales. Notched upper and lower for thumb placement, handle lined for a lanyard. Original edges, knife is simply perfect except for light patina on the pins and lanyard sleeve.
The knife comes with the original “Jack Crider-Special” stamped no hone sheath with toe tab for thigh lanyards. (no lanyards included) The sheath is in excellent+++ or better condition, nothing but light handling marks front and back.
8 photos for review – as shown, an embroidered RMK carry case is included. This is a great knife perfect for use and carry... awesome for fishing. That said, 5” Crider Special’s in this condition are few and far between... probably one to buy and tuck away for collection / investment purposes. All the others I’ve seen sell on eBay typically go for high 600’s and even in the 700’s... check this one out! Thanks and good luck.
