Used but in very good condition. Purchased new in the mid 90s and carried on and off for a while... then I found something I liked a little bit better. The handle is machined T6 aluminum and it has a few honest nicks but nothing very large or that noticeable. The blade is in great shape and it is sharp. No nicks, dings or broken tips on this needle point ATS-34 stainless steel blade. I always touched it up at the end of the days when it was being used on a regular basis. Not real familiar with the used auto knife market but I will start out by asking $165.00 for this very nice U.S.A. made Benchmade knife.
