Product Description

Offered for sale is a custom fixed-blade “Sportsman Classic” knife, hand-made in USA by Alvin Poston of South Carolina.   Alvin Poston was a disciple of George Herron, a noted knifemaker and past president of the Knifemakers’ Guild.  Alvin Poston passed away in 2010.  This knife features a stainless steel clip-point blade, nickel silver hilt and butt cap, and a very nice white bone handle.  The blade is 5-1/8″ long and 3/16″ thick at the hilt.  Overall length is 9″.  The blade is tang stamped Poston, and is numbered 1100 on the top of the blade.  The knife is in excellent, like-new condition overall.  The blade appears to be unsharpened.  The handle is in excellent condition, except for a minor, naturally-occurring blemish in the bone material (see photo).  The fit and finish is superb.  The knife includes a leather sheath.  This knife is very well made, and will provide many years of service with proper care.  Or, it would be right at home in a collection of custom knives.  You can own this very high quality handmade knife for $499.99.
