Summary: this is a model SH Survival Hunter by Vaughn Neeley. Vaughn is the founding father of Timberline Knives -- these Survival Hunters are everything you could ever want or need in a survival situation. The handle slabs are held in place with screws -- you'll find survival items stored on the underside of each micarta slab. The handle tool is stored on the Neeley handmade sheath next to the sparking flint -- someone with survival skills (like Vaughn, a Green Beret) can have a fire burning in short order. All it takes is practice -- being a Green Beret is not a requirement!

The original Neeley sheath is in excellent+++ or better condition with just a few small handling marks.

Bonus: extra black tooled pouch sheath, custom made for the model.

8 photos for review -- this #021SH is a very low number made all the way back in May of 2008. As shown, a new carry case is included. These are the best of the best, perfect for everyday carry, camping, backpacking, etc. Great value, don’t miss out. Thanks and good luck.

Additional information:

Survival Hunter - Survival Skinner Blade Length 3-3/4 inches • Overall Length 7-3/4 inches • Bead Blast Finish on Blade Flats, Polished Hollow Ground Bevel • Black Micarta Removeable Scales, (hollowed out and packed with compass, snare wire, leader, a royal coachman fly, hooks, sinkers, etc.) • 440 C Blade is 3/16" steel, with full tapered tang, hardened to 58-60 RC. Beautiful Hand made sheath. The top of the blade of this knife has a roughing saw for making ideal wood tinder and the sheath includes the handle access tool and a magnesium flint for fire starting. If you have never seen this demonstrated, I must tell you it is pretty impressive. Vaughn can take the knife out of the sheath, pick up a block of wood, scrape tinder and have a nice flame going in 15 seconds. Vaughn, who is a former Green Beret (1968-1971), says this is the only knife he would ever need in a survival situation.
