80’s Smith & Wesson Maverick model 6061 Clip Point
Smith & Wesson Maverick Folding Hunters were built in the early 1980's. "The Maverick was not only a Smith & Wesson design but was built by their knife division. It was constructed of Stainless Steel and had insert rosewood panels. Sales were very strong, and Smith & Wesson was encouraged." Text from: "The knives of Smith and Wesson, Author C.E. Rinke". Excellent book.
There is a rare combination of durability and ruggedly handsome styling in Maverick folding hunters. Crafted from corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the Mavericks have a recessed lock release and a brass stop that prevents over travel and blade damage.
A notched tang provides a positive secure lock for the open blade. And genuine rosewood inlays highlight a hand filling handle that is contoured for a sure, firm grip.
The 3 1/2" blades are flat ground from 440 stainless steel for strength and the ability to hold their razor-sharp edge and come in either the clip point (model 6061 or drop point (model 6062) design.
This 6061 features a clip point blade 3.5" long. These were the only Stainless-Steel Folders S&W ever produced in-house.
This knife is in excellent condition and has the Black S&W Wessonhide sheath. No Box 0522
