Note: a special thanks to Les Robertson over at Robertson’s Custom Cutlery for helping me to date this knife.
Summary: here's one you don't see everyday or on any given day, a HUGE Walter Brend fighter made in the 1990’s.
This big beauty has an 11-7/8" blade with a satin finish and was made from 5/16” blade stock. It’s a monster, overall length is just a hair under 17-1/2”. Top clip is sharp with serrations, the blade looks brand new. The fingered black micarta handle fits perfectly in either hand, lined and fitted with a lanyard. Overall condition is excellent; that said, there is a chip in the micarta at the ass end of the back side micarta scale, and what looks to be some type of residual glue on the guard on the back side. (reference photos 11 and 12)
The canvas / cordura sheath is original to the knife and was made with a couple of front side storage compartments. Velcro everywhere to keep the knife tight and the storage compartments sealed, the sheath is in near mint to mint condition.
12 photos for review – as shown, a new Maxpedition carry case is included. The market price on this knife in mint condition would probably be upwards of $3500, this one a fraction of the cost due to the chip in the micarta at the butt end. If you can live with that, you’re only a few mouse clicks away from owning a very special, unique and rare knife. This is an amazing piece… don't miss out. Thanks and good luck.
