This is a new in the box, mid 1970's Schrade model 498s. This was their premium line called the "49ers" and they were "benchmade" in that someone assembled them with greater care and of premium components. This has the box, plastic, paper and has never been used in any way. Great collector, or to give to a child... not many get to own or use this knife. $75 email me at email@example.com Thanks for looking.
