Original receipt, dated August 1973, is included from Cooper Knives, Burbank, CA, for shipment February 1974. John Nelson Cooper is known as the longest continuous maker of custom made knives in the U.S. Condition is excellent with just the slightest mellowing to brass accents and very light carbon spotting to blades.
