Summary: this is an old school Pack Rat (discontinued model), 4.5” Starrett 496-01 blade with combat finish. Razor sharp and light / fast in hand, 3/16” blade stock with Mad Dog trademark in a very unique location. Only a few knives have been signed like this off the ricasso and it was only done as a favor for a friend. The handle material is the proprietary glass / epoxy composite compression bonded to the hidden full tang. The Pack Rat was an awesome model for daily use, this one has been tucked away since original purchase and is in mint condition.
The knife comes with two original Mad Dog issue sheaths: kydex high ride and slip. Both sheaths look new though the rivets on the high ride have been touched up at some point.
7 photos for review – as shown, a new Mad Dog Knives carry case is included. This is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a collectible MDK for everyday carry, obviously a great knife for collection / investment purposes. Thanks and good luck.
