Not sure when they dropped the fish hook file groove.
I finally got it Really first ever Cabela's PST (serif font of etching on knife blade) with first original leather sheath (large snap cap, clear and off-center Cabela's logo, no spacers inside on rivets).
First time I've seen the centre hole in the pivot?
Congrats on that one, wow
Although I'm surprised you did not have this already.I guess the features you describe above are different form the other early Calelas PSTsIt's the first time I have seen the blade etching (although, I note, it is in my table in the first post!! ..... I had to check !! )
Of course, I already had few Cabela's PSTs, but this one has earliest and rarest knife blade with serif font ethching. Sans serif font etching more common and occurs on later PSTs.
I just have no idea why the handles are blank, although it does have the patent but I think that's it
Got any photos of it?Sounds like an interesting example. Looks just like the picture above
That was the version my Dad had. He was so thrilled with it!
I wonder too....most were well used.
I wonder how many are left out there. It's been 35 years and they didn't make too many.
These are the file versions I currently have, but am wondering how many file variations there are out there?
Thank you, wowaboro! That is quite a lot. Are all of the variations fairly obvious, or are some only noticeable by serious PST collectors?
I’ve just had to reset my view of how little I know about PST variations.
