Summary: this is a vintage Timberline Survival Chute and original belt sheath. Serial #016SF on the back side blade flat, Timberline logo on the front. The main edge measures 5-1/2", tip to black micarta scales is 6-1/2". Upper edge sharp, very unique with the fine serrations. (see photo 9) The knife was made with pinned black micarta scales (perfect condition), an integral lanyard hole on the exposed tang. The knife has never been used and has the original edges, easily excellent or better condition with nothing but light rub marks on the flat near the Timberline logo.
The belt sheath is original to the knife, this confirmed by Vaughn. Excellent condition, you will find handling marks and a few scuffs on both sides... all relatively minor and no big deal.
Bonus: "don't BRO me if you don't know me" velcro patch. Ain't worth much but it's pretty funny. And in my opinion.... applicable!
9 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is a very early Timberline Survival Chute with the low serial number of 016, a rare find in this unused condition. Check out the photos, this one would be perfect for use or collection purposes. The serial number leaves very little room to upgrade, it's an awesome find. Thanks and good luck.
