Ya think maybe that was orginally a big honker knife that at this point from expert resharpening has become a sweet killer dart point? All parts of it is really finely made for Hamilton holy cow boom

That’s a beauty! A well made Point! Seems super thin. Like tom said, whomever worked it down from a knife to its current condition was indeed a master.

Excellent example, love the base on that one.
It really has a special outline.
After getting to whiteness as much of your collection as we all have, even the catalog number is so fresh and young and so optimistic.
Have a great week!

Dang nice point. I love that material. One would think I'd find more of that material in my neck of the woods.
