Peanut with smooth red bone handles and no shield. Although this is called a smooth red, most of the SR handles made in this era closely resemble red appaloosa which was so named later. Most are red with white, not a consistent red. This one has confirmed chrome vanadium blades. Blades are tight with no wobble, good snap, and original factory edge. Handles are chip and crack free. Bolsters could use a good cleaning, otherwise the knife is near mint. Thanks for looking and your consideration.
