Union Knife Co. Naugatuck, Jumbo Gnarly Stag Gunstock Saber Jack, No Reserve :
I'm liquidating many items from my personal collection. YOU INFORMED & INTERESTED buyers WILL DECIDE THE VALUE OF THIS ENIGMATIC PIECE !This JUMBO GNARLY STAG GUNSTOCK SABER JACK, stamped "UNION KNIFE Co. NAUGATUCK" is being offered at absolute sale :
, 99 cent opening offer.
YOU will decide the value of this enigmatic piece. I bought it, about 15 years ago, with both my eyes open. The Seller was (is) a Kentucky Gentleman, and a knife dealer & collector with integrity & responsibility. HE told me that he could make no guarantees about this knife, up front. I bought it because of ITS SIZE (5 1/4 inches long closed), the BEAUTIFUL STAG HANDLES (Please notice the small chip at the center pin, obverse side), the unique SABER-GROUND SWELL-END SPEAR POINT BLADE PATTERN (never saw blades like this before or since), and the general overall condition (EXCELLENT+++++, snaps like a turtle - open, half-stop, and closed, and THE BLADES & BACKSPRINGS ALIGN & MATCH PERFECTLY,showing that the blades are original to the frame). ON THE OTHER HAND.. What's a Doghead Shield doing on a knife that was supposedly manufactured between 1851 - 1885 ? HUH ? This Doghead is PINNED ON CORRECTLY, but KA-BAR didn't begin making knives so-stamped until 1911. This knife is a big question mark.... it is more than likely THE ONLY KNIFE LIKE IT IN THE WORLD.... COMPLETELY UNIQUE. No matter what its pedigree (or lack of same), it is a BEAUTIFUL knife, and its condition is EXCELLENT and FUNCTIONAL.... If you have any interest in Stag handle material or in Gunstock Patterns... this would be a highlight in your collection. I'm sorry to see it go.. but go it must.. and at absolute sale.. means no risk, no waiting to beat snipers.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TIME & CIRCUMSTANCES - anybody who visits my knife sales knows that I focus on fine old gnarly stag pieces; here's another !.... offer WITHOUT HESITATION.
And please take a look at my other sales, being posted this week.
Please email with any questions. Thank you for your kind interest !
