The ricasso of this knife is marked Hendricks 75 inside a scrolled banner, suggesting it was made in 1975. Underneath banner is stamped XLH-14. The blade steel could be 440C, which Larry used quite often, or it could be 154 CM. The blade thickness is 1/4 inch with a width of 1 3/8 inches. Although the blade does have some very minor pitting in a couple of places, it is in very good overall condition. The handle is virtually immaculate and contoured to provide an excellent grip. All in all, a great knife. Blade Steel: Unknown Steel - Mirror Polished
