Summary: this is a fabulous deal on an older MD "Wild Thing", not many of this model floating around for sale. This knife has a 6" Starrett 496-01 double-edged blade with combat finish and early etched "MAD DOG" trademark, the handle material is the proprietary glass / epoxy composite that is compression bonded to the hidden full tang. This is a very stout knife made from 1/4" blade stock – overall length is 10-5/8". The edges are original, the knife has not been resharpened. The knife has most definitely not been used, looks perfect and is in nothing less than mint condition.
The kydex belt sheath is original to the knife, a few handling scuffs on the front that can be best seen in direct light. Overall condition is excellent or better, easily. I mean.....c'mon, it's kydex!
7 photos for review – as shown, a new embroidered Mad Dog carry case is included. This is the perfect piece for the guy who is looking for a rock solid knife for self protection or field use – Mad Dog's early double-edged knives are extremely nice and highly regarded. This one's from the mid-1990's, definitely one to buy and tuck away for collection / investment purposes. It's a kick ass piece, don't miss out. Thanks and good luck.
