1987 America's Cup Boating Knife Mint

Thank you for letting me know I was wrong to post the sales link here. I will leave the description and photo for those that might enjoy taking a look at this knife.

This knife is from the 1987 America's Cup competion. It is in mint unsharpened condition with two scratches (thanks sailingdog) on the front of the master blade.

Also, sailingdog, the knife does look mint and unused. Clean inside and out. The worn spot you mention is not a worn place. It is a circular indentation on both sides of the handle for finger and thumb placement. See second photo. Also shown the original packaging.

Thank you camaraderie for being understanding. Now if I can figure out the classified.

Regards,

Rhett

It is poor form to post items for sale in a forum not specifically designated for such a purpose. Especially since it is your first and only post.

America's Cup Knife

Thank you for being candid. As this knife needs to be owned by someone who appreciates boating or wants to use it, I was looking for a place to contact those people. Yes, and to sell it also.

You have a great site here and your member participation is to be admired. In fact I will post a thread on a discussion site that I own with a link to your site here for the boaters there. No, I will not post a link to that site as now I am sure, that would be wrong also.

My apology to any I have offended.

Regards,

Rhett

Rhett...why don't you just edit your post above and move it to the classifieds section where it belongs. I'll leave it alone above for the next 24 to give you that opportunity.

Besides, that knife hardly looks "mint" as there are scratches in the finish on the blade clearly visible in the photo. Generally "mint" means that it looks brand new and unused... that looks like it's seen some use. The finish is also worn near the hinge portion of the blade.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
