Summary: if you're in the market for a custom numbered Neeley and don't buy this one... well... snooze you lose. This knife is a 1-Off and simply stunning, same specs / build as the limited run of Chris Kyle knives but without any blade markings.
Same dimensions as a numbered Dual Front (7" blade / hollow handle, etc.), beyond that there's no comparison to the other numbered DF's Vaughn has made. Better than the hand rubbed blade finished knives that sold for $895, this one has a MIRROR POLISHED blade and sterile but for serial number and maker stamp on the back ricasso. Photos do the knife no justice, it's ... amazing!
Vaughn polished the guard and wrapped the hollow handle with black cord. The knurled aluminum butt cap is also polished, comes with a waterproof compass. (see photo 6) The knife has never been used or carried, mint condition.
The sheath is original to the knife, also made by Vaughn Neeley. Sterile without stamps or markings, mint condition.
8 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is one hell of a knife worth a good bit more than my asking, the amount of work that goes in to a piece like this is just staggering. It's a 1-off custom order, you will not find another Neeley / Lile Next Gen like it. Thanks and good luck.
