Summary: more rare than pretty, this is a 1960’s seven spacer model 2-8 with etched trademark, double nickel silver hilt and rare brown micarta handle. The blade has been extensively sharpened and buffed up, still 8” in length though so what’s been taken has come off the sides and not the overall length. Don’t expect a safe queen or sock drawer stowaway... this one’s not. That said, I’m offering the knife below value and I’m sure with the brown micarta handle that someone will be able to justify adding this one to their collection. Photos are accurate, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
The brown button JRB is in about the same shape as the knife... all there and rock solid but not very pretty. Original stone is long gone, it appears the replacement salmon stone has been with the sheath for quite a long time. Snaps work fine, all you’re really needing to deal with is the scuffs and handling marks on both sides. (and the fact that it’s dry and could use conditioning) On that note: we miss you Grady... you were the best and RIP!!
7 photos for review – as shown, a new RMK carry case is included. This is a cool old knife still fit for use / collection or investment purposes. Thanks and good luck.
