    Default RH Pal 36 Fighting knife

    Hi guys,Had this for a few months now and I thought I'd show it. Its been resharpened and the finish looks like it's been removed post-war, This may sound stupid but should I get the finish redone?

    I would recommend leaving it "as is".

    They are a good knife.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, do leave as is.

    You might want to give the blade a light hand polishing with a cloth
    and polish compound - like 'Flitz'.

    There were apparently two versions made of this knife - 'Parkerized'
    and 'in the white' (natural metal). Most I've come across were not Parkerized............
    Regards,

    all day long at that price..................but condition is important !

    I've got one of these knives, but it's got a Sheffield, England stamp. Anyone know why that might be? I can't find any information on it, or even another example of one on the internet - all the others say, "Made in USA." Is this a fake? I've had it for like 20 years.

    The stamp looks uneven in some way. Could it have been made on top of the "US" stamp?
