Up for sale is this estate found very Large Custom P. J Tomes Folding Drop Point Knife with liner lock and Serrated Bone Handles in a Black Shagreen (sting ray skin) Sheath. It is 10 3/8" Long and the handle is 5 7/8 " long with the blade being 4 1/2 long.
I think its probably a earlier Custom made Tomes knife and Larger then any others I could find? Unsure of the handle material but he did use high grade material for his handles and does have some slight discoloring starting and it has intricate carved serrated design on the handle. It has some light scratches to bolster , and the blade is most likely made from 52100 steel but has never been sharpened and also has just some light cloth scratches. Very Clean smooth working knife but does has a slight side to side wobble on blade but probably normal for knife this large and everything seems tight. The Stingray shagreen case has some wear spots on the outside and some wear to inside of sheath.This came from a local Estate and he had 5 other Tomes knifes and 2 Hatchets , and was obviously a big fan of Tomes Knives. I have tried to locate Him but apparently he took off to Thailand and I guess he moved there permenately and I can't find any contact info on him yet. I will accept offers on the knife and any help or info on the knife would be appreciated. Please check out all the photos and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
