Knife grades

Although my main intention is to provide good quality hunting knives at a fair price I have used Accepted American Knife Collectors Condition Grades to describe each knife.  Yes many of the knives listed are collectable but for mine a knife is there to be used.  Grades are listed below:

PRISTINE MINT:  Knife is mint.  In addition, it sells itself in a powerful way.

MINT:  Knife is the same as it was when it was produced.  May have a minor crack in a handle, or a freckle on the blade/blades, but absolutely no evidence of use or sharpening.

NEAR MINT:  Knife is nearly mint.  Any deviation from mint is minor.  If the knife has been expertly cleaned, it must appear as mint, full blade/blades, no evidence of sharpening or use.

EXCELLENT:  Knife is in excellent condition.  Handles are in fine shape.  Blade/blades show only slight wear, or discoloration.  Unless otherwise stated blade/blades and handle are original.

VERY GOOD:   Knife is in very good condition.  Blade/blades may show up to 10% wear.  Blade/blades are original (unless otherwise stated).   Handle  original (unless otherwise stated) but may show damage.  Blades or back springs(on folders) may be pitted.

PLUS OR MINUS (+ OR -): This may be used to describe a knife that may fall between the above categories.
