Summary: this is an unused Mad Dog “Panther” with 10” Starrett 496-01 blade, early / long type 1 choil, and black handle. Made from 1/4” stock with a 6” sharpened upper edge, overall length is 15-1/2”. The edges on the blade are shop done, NOT resharpened. You’ll find a couple of very light rubs on the blade from sheath insertion, quite minor and really only visible in direct light. This is simply a gorgeous knife, a giveaway at this price point.
The knife comes with two original sheaths: one ATAK sheath and one Dundee sheath. The sheaths have a couple of light storage scuffs, a couple of the rivets with some paint missing. Easy fix, just touch it up with a black Sharpie. No brainer.
6 photos for review – as shown, a new Mad Dog Knives carry case is included. This is a screaming deal and I’m only going to say it once. If I take it to eBay it’ll be gone in about two heart beats. Don’t make me do it... buy it here for this great price! Seriously... compare to those on eBay at $6995 and $8995! Thanks and good luck.
