I have been holding back on RADs!


The stag handles on that massive hewer is beautiful!

I love that look!

Now officers are nice,don't get me wrong!

When they are nice they are nice!

Hangers and leather hangers are really appealing!

A few hilt obverses. The full stag came with an anodized scabbard direct from the vet's grandson.

Thanks for adding these!

These belt loops for leader hewers are especially difficult to find. Could once gain a hoard by chance.

Mikee

Try and stay away from sharpened or beat hewers! Like it lived banging in a tool box for 65 yrs!

You see them shown on the pages! Look at what good ones look like!

Condition is everything in price! Paint? Original? If paint is new looking! Smell the scabbard! Paint thats new has smell!

Price for nice 800.00 up~ Getting a beat up one is up to you!


Many dealers are 1200 up! Condition is everything!

What are you looking for? How much do you want to spend!


You can always put a wanted ad in GD wanted area!


Good luck!

PVON,

Thank you for great advice. The one I saw was a Rad leader. Eickhorn. Condition wasn't mint like the one you showed. No cracks, looked like normal wear all over including the blade with normal scratches. The coloring on the scabbard was pretty much worn off. Wasn't a beat up one. Asking price was $2200.00 firm. I didn't take pictures but should have.

Hi

I was talking about the rad hewer! Now as far as Rad Leader! I would pass!

Price and condition! Nope!

I was told it was a Hewer but when I saw it I knew it was a leader. I agree the price was way to high! What would a ballpark figure for a leader in that condition be?

Mikee that is a decent RAD leaders in collectible condition by a desirable maker. I would place value at $1800 to $2400 nice grips, blade and plating/finish A good piece and $2200 is a fair price IMO cheers and best, Ryan
