Summary: brand new, this is a custom 1-Off “Physis Fighter” made by Rob Bayley. Leather COA with “20 05” on it, this was the 5th knife Rob made this year. This knife has a 4-3/4” CPM S90V blade (unusual for a Bayley!) with jimped spine, stainless guard and green G10 handle with green & orange liners. A gorgeous looking custom Bayley knife, mint condition with an O.A.L. of 9-1/4”.
Rob went a couple of extra miles on the sheath and matched it to the handle color with orange thread to match the tang liners. And if that wasn’t enough, a Ferro Rod with matching handle!! Mint condition, probably the coolest Bayley sheath I’ve seen.
7 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. Information on the model below, this is an awesome knife perfect for collection / investment purposes. A very rare find... thanks and good luck.
From the maker:
“The Physis (the nature) was a pet project to build a model for very aggressive cutting only two made to date, a working prototype and this 1st off knife and sheath. It has an assertive geometry so that the blade naturally pulls itself into the cut during the slicing action. Unusually CPM S90V steel was chosen for its ability to take an aggressive but long lasting edge.”
