Summary: this is a 2019 Sub-Compact Raven, one of two made. This sub-compact Raven may or may not enter in to Rob’s standard knife offerings, hope so as I’m certainly a big advocate and the knife is perfect simply perfect for EDC.
This knife has a 3-1/2” Niolox/SB1 blade and black G10 handle scales. It comes with a black leather survival sheath and C.O.A., as shown. Original edge, quite stout (3/16” stock, + / -) and notched on top for thumb placement. And with only two made, it’s a prototype and about as rare as you're apt to find.
Condition: the knife and sheath are both in unused / mint condition.
Rob was kind enough to authenticate the knife via email in addition to the leather COA:
“The Sub-Compact Raven is one of two working prototypes that I built working to standardise a new "carry" model, Compact at 7.5" OAL but full depth and more then capable in use. This one is set up for front hip carry and is in Niolox/SB1 blade steel.”
8 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is a great deal on a Bayley prototype, it’s a kick ass knife so don't miss out. Thanks and good luck.
