Nice Tom Leschorn Model 3-5"
While not one of Leschorn's heavily adorned knives, this little model 3-5" is typical of knives of he would handle. Bo Randall would send Mr. Leschorn blades with the hilt soldered on, and Tom would assemble them with spacers and handle material of his choice.
The vast majority of this type of Leschorn'e work were smaller field knives.
The blade is mint and this particular knife has the characteristic Leschorn 5 medium thick spacer stack and happens to be red and white. His other common stack was blue/grey and white.
The knife has a maroon micarta handle.
Leschorn was also known to pin the butt versus using a tang nut, as he did with this example. Also note the slight bevel to the brass butt versus what would typically come from the Randall Shop.
The Johnson rough back sheath is in excellent condition showing light evidence of the knife being in the sheath and handling. It does not appear it was stored in the sheath.
An SP-13 Bear Brand stone resides in the pouch.
Great opportunity to get into a Tom Leschorn knife in overall near mint conditon without the very high prices usually associated with his heavily adorned pieces.
