Blade inscription show it as # ‘2 of 12’ in a limited edition series, though records only show numbers 2 thru 4 were made, indicating only three of the knives in this series were actually completed, thus making this one of three knives in this series completed with all three having the same ivory Micarta handle.
10 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is a great knife that like all Hammond’s fees awesome “in hand”. Nothing but a few light handling marks on the bolsters / butt and micarta scales, not perfect by any means but easily an 8.5 on a scale of 1 to 10. That said, three or four minutes in experienced hands on a buffer and it’ll look perfect. The sheath with a few scuffs front and back, looks to be handling / storage marks vs. carry wear. A fabulous knife for the Hammond collector, certainly the first of this model I’ve ever seen. Thanks and good luck.
