80’s Smith & Wesson Maverick model 6062
Smith & Wesson Maverick Folding Hunters 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." from: "The knives of Smith and Wesson, Author C.E. Rinke"
There's 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's 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. They came with a "Wessonhide" sheath with S&W snap.
This 6062 features a drop 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 NOS however the top of the box is missing; comes exactly as pictured.
