Summary: this is an early Bill Sanders Chute Knife, his model F1 with the serial #014. This knife has a 6.5" double-edged blade (measured tip to front of wood scale), beautiful with the mirror polish and wood scales. Overall length is 11-1/2, made from 3/16" stock and very fast in hand. The knife is in excellent+++ condition, nothing but a few very light marks on the blade that can only be seen if you turn the knife in direct light.
The knife is paired with what I believe to be the original belt sheath, I'm relatively sure the sheath was also made by Bill. Great quality and workmanship, easily excellent+++ or better with just a few light handling marks.
8 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. Bill is one of the original founders of Timberline Knives (with Vaughn Neeley and Jim Hardenbrook), his workmanship and quality is top notch and second to none. Long story short: this is a great knife for the money, if you're in the market for a wickedly nice double-edged knife for concealed carry / self protection... this is the one!! Check out the photos, this one's as deadly as it is pretty. A great combination, don't you think? Thanks and good luck.
