This is an Edge Brand made in Solingen not sure when it was made maybe in the 30s, a young man brought it to me at the gun show last week, it had belonged to his grandfather and wanted to know if I could fix it, what could I say, what ever thay used for spacers were gone, the guard and butt were all dinged up, got it apart was able to leave the original pins, happened to have a piece of old ivory micarta so used it with black spacers and it came out the right length,managed to get it finished with out getting into the patina on the bone, will make him a new sheath and he will be good to go.

Looks great! I have an old Solingen Buffalo Skinner from the 70s that has ivory and red spacers. the black looks good with the patina on the bone.
