Nice Ranger find
on: June 05, 2022, 03:06:06 AM
Just got this and it’s almost like new. I date this to 80 to 82 because the shield seems to be stainless steel and this style box was used up to 82. Not the biggest Ranger fan but this was too cheap not to buy and it’s almost like new. I may sell it or trade it. I probably would prefer to trade it. I know for sure it’s something between 78 to 82 but no sharpened cap lifter and stainless steel shield kind of narrows it to 80 to 82. Any more information would be much appreciated but I think I have the era as accurate as it can possibly get for this model and era.

The Ranger is one of my favorites, and that's a really nice one.  Congrats!  :tu:

Any more information would be much appreciated ........

You are going to need to post a few more pictures than just that of a closed knife if you want more information!!
But looks like you have it very close from your research anyway

After more examination the shield looks nickel silver and it's probably a 78 or 79 but for sure 78 to 82 and for $35 and it's almost like new it's fine and I'm going to sell it because it's too bulky for what I would carry. Climbers are the bulkiest thing I will carry and they are not close to what I prefer. Compacts and Pioneer X's are my favorites to carry and if I had to pick just one it would be my black Compact over all SAK's to EDC. I will probably post this for sale soon but It's not going to be $35. More like $75 plus shipping and that seems to be fair for this era and this condition. I'm not in love with this because of the size but it is very nice and a real collector may want it and I don't keep knives that I don't or won't carry but I'm not a collector. If it doesn't get used it gets sold off is my motto. If I was smarter I would just have my black Compact and my black 580 Clipper because they both get use a lot and carried.
