Jess Horn 2-blade Muskrat, THE KNIFE: stag handles, two backsprings and locking bars, each blade locks, front locks, 4 closed, 7 open (one blade) 10 1/4 with both blades open, mint, comes with a Jess Horn marked zip up case. Both blades marked Jess Horn, #006. Mint. THE MAKER: Jess Horn became a legend for his high quality custom investor quality folders. He passed away in 2016 and left a gap in the market for fine folders with simple clean lines and exceptional fit and finish. He invented the knife lottery system, the first knifemaker to ever have such demand for his knives--and that demand has never lessened. He is listed as Number 11 on the Blade Magazine list of top knifemakers if the first 40 years of knifemaking. A survey of a half-dozen top knife dealer sites show his knives ranging from a low of $1300 up to a high of 4000, and many others in between those two amounts.
