Scarce Browning Arms limited edition Midas Grade Model 23 lockback with superb quality 24K gold-etched hunting scenes on the blade and exotic quince burl handle scales. A limited-issue hand-finished in Japan for Browning in the 1990th; unused minty condition. This “Midas Grade” commemorative run was limited to just 3000 hand-finished knives; each marked “one of 3000” on the tang; original retail pricewas $110 over 20 years ago . This knife is still in the original solid walnut presentation case with Browning COA, care instructions, and the original correctly-labeled retail box – rare this nice and complete.
The knife is about 7-5/8″ / 19.4 cm fully opened; mirror-polished AUS-8A stainless blade is about 3-1/4” / 8.2 cm. Exotic quince burl handle scales; blade lock is in perfect working order. Original edge is razor-sharp, the tip is intact; the blade is tight with no play. The knife has never been used or carried; a fingerprint (cleanable) on the nickel-silver bolster is noted for accuracy. Overall condition is excellent; this limited edition Browning model 23 knife will be a welcome addition to any collection.
I recently purchased several vintage knives from a family of a long-time knife collector. I addition to a couple of vintage Puma, Al Mar, Case XX, Browning, and Remington knives, I have several pre-WW2 American blades, as well as WW2 era fighting daggers and WW1 trench knives available for sale – please take a look in our Militaria section. This minty Browning model 23 knife has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original condition; these are the actual photos.
