Have seen this 98, but noticed an odd mark on the blade. Have only seen the photo, so can't tell if it's just a stain, dirt or indeed could it be a defect or repair?
Anyone seen anything similar, or have any ideas?

Looks like a repair to me, but I'm using my phone right now.

silver solder can and has been used in the past to fill gaps and holes.

 

if its from South Australia, run like the wind.

 

a dodgy dealer comes to mind

It's in the UK. Think I'll make a phone call to try and bottom it out. Cheers all.

Have queried the mark, regards to a repair or damage and they report back that the blade has been greased and it's a thumb print.

 You need/want to see it without the grease, methinks!

I assume, 'if' I were to acquire this gunto, and it did turn out to be damaged/repaired I would have course for a full refund given the questions I've asked and answers given in writing?

Dont count on it, depends on seller.

 

ask for better pix with all the grease off, if he baulks just pass on it.
