IN THIS AUCTION YOU ARE BIDDING ON:
Description: " WESTERN F48B BOULDER COLORADO HUNTING SKINNING KNIFE "
Size: "See Pics "
Markings: " WESTERN BOULDER COLORADO MADE IN USA F48B "
Noted/Seen Defects: " SHOULD HOLD A NICE EDGE - NEEDS CLEANING,POLISHING Etc."
SPECIAL NOTES: " Knife feels good in your hand. The spacers are textured & gives a good grip(feels ribbed,not smooth) Knife would get you through a Deer Ok, but in my humble opinion would be best for small game & birds, & fishing. Knife is not overly big/obtrusive & would be a fantastic FULL TIME companion during the hunting & fishing season. I believe the sheath is original to the knife though i see no markings. It is embossed with Oak leaves & acorns. It is used,but not abused & with a little Mink oil or leather conditioner it should clean up nice & offer years of service.
Most of the knives i have listed have heavy use or some kind of flaw. I am offering these up as FUNCTIONAL KNIVES TO ACTUALLY USE,not put on the wall. So please Keep in mind that i acquired these over the years at estate auctions / sales etc. NONE of them came from a Museum Showcase. So if you are seeking a MINT, MUSEUM showcase type knife you will not find it here. ALL are AS ACQUIRED,meaning that i have not Buffed , Polished, Sanded etc. I simply do not have the time.
Please look at the pics to determine the condition to decide if it is what you are seeking. I am a hunter & have been up to my elbows in Deer & up to my shoulders in Moose. So i am qualified to comment on what the knife can do,or what i think it can do. As a matter of fact , i bought most of these thinking i could use them or sell them. I pretty much have all the knives i am going to keep(for now) & am selling the surplus. If you have a question PLEASE ask & i will get right back to you. "

Attention NEW USERS:
I really hate to do this, but due to the increased (more than a dozen in 4 months) number of NEW users signing up, placing bids/buying several items then disappearing forever. I have blocked all users with less than 1 positive feedback.
When someone bids/buys an item & fails to follow through it ties me & the item up for approx 30 days to go through the process of getting my fees from the sale back & relisting the item .
This does not mean that new users cannot bid on/ buy any of my items. It only means that they have to take a couple of extra steps to bid/buy.
# 1 Write to me and ask to have the block lifted on your user ID
# 2 PayPal payments to be made at the end of auction(within 24 hrs)
I apologize for this inconvenience, but i need to try and WEED OUT the people who think it is fun(or a joke) to spend the evening bidding & buying with no intention of paying.
A NOTE ABOUT RETURNS:
Though most of my listings state that there are NO RETURNS that is because there is no single policy or statement that covers ALL situations. Returns are handled & reviewed on a CASE BY CASE BASIS.
Notes on FEEDBACK:
As always Positive feedback will be left for every buyer that leaves like kind.
FEEDBACK is STILL IMPORTANT for BUYERS...It represents your "Conquests" & Experience In the EBAY community, Consider them "The NOTCHES on your gun/belt"
When you leave POSITIVE FB, that says to me: "COOL GREAT WOW I am a Satisfied Buyer & the deal is complete! "
If you feel you need to leave NEUTRAL or NEGATIVE Write to me to EXPRESS YOUR Concern. 99% of any NEG FB that has been left was done so with the buyer never even telling me there was a problem. The Other 1%..... Well... sometimes you cant jump through enough hoops for them.
THIS is VERY IMPORTANT:
If you are leaving FB & you are happy enough to be checking off 4 STARS....Please go ahead and check off 5 STARS.
WITH this NEW SYSTEM 4 stars LOOKS like it is a good GRADE. But in reality , even though 4 stars when choosing them LOOKS GOOD it would actually DEMOTE a SELLERS RATING over time.
These Ratings or DSRs are very important to ANY/ALL sellers reputations. So please feel free to take what you have read here & apply it to let ALL your Sellers know that you are a "HAPPY CAMPER" :)
Thanks for checking out my items.
Over time there should be just about something for everyone in this store
I have been dealing on Ebay since Sept '99 & dabbling with antiques & the flea markets since the early '80s.
My motto is:
I Know a Little about Alot & Alot about a Little :)
Over the years i have been expert on everything from vintage GI Joe's To antique glass, but as my interests & inventories have changed i have forgotten alot.....Hence my motto.
I list items as accurately as possible & to the best of my knowledge. I am human & do make mistakes sometimes so if something is not as i said it was i will do what i can to make things right. I prefer to take a lot of pics instead of typing 10,000 words to describe an item. To me the pics say way more about an item than i can write.
I literally have Thousands & Thousands of items to list, i just dont have the time to list them all at once. So please check back often because you never know what you might find.
I try to list LIKE KIND items as much as possible to encourage multiple purchases. Which means many single items i have may be a long ways from getting listed. Every once in awhile i come across something that has been around for 10 years & think to myself " I REALLY OUGHT TO GET THIS LISTED" If you are looking for something you cant find, drop me a line....who knows i may have one waaaaay in the back corner.
If you are a current , past , or a new customer please read all the "BORING STUFF" at least once
as i have added a few NEW things. I do not have the time to edit the hundreds of previously listed items, so these additions/information/statements will be on all items listed after March 13th 2009
IMPORTANT NEW NOTICE (6/15/2010)
Ebay has yet Another NEW RULE.
ALL items listed will NOW have to be stated as NEW or USED. I have ALWAYS made this status clear for my buyers(and still will) HOWEVER one of the first things you will see on a listing is ITEM CONDITION followed by NEW or USED.
I sell MOSTLY old vintage things & if they are factory sealed i will list them as new & describe them as NEW OLD STOCK.
Many items such as SOLDIER KITS & ESPECIALLY DECALS are NOT NEW but they ARE NOT USED either. As USUAL with a MASS EBAY CHANGE i have to choose a option that does not really apply to the item i am selling. Because of this i will be listing ALL items that are not factory sealed as USED, even though an unbuilt soldier is not used & the fact that you cannot sell a USED DECAL
Please feel free to Email Me at any time , but PLEASE GO THROUGH THE EBAY EMAIL SYSTEM, IE: Ask Seller A Question.
Otherwise your Email might end up in my Spam folder & lost forever.
If there is a problem PLEASE contact me through Email , NOT FEEDBACK to address a concern. There are FEW if ANY issues that cannot be handled to the satisfaction of all with proper communication :)
