Beautiful prototype built by Tak Fukuta for Ducks Unlimited. The story on it was they were planning on putting out a limited run of these and had him make this prototype. For whatever reason this ended up being the only one made. Its very well done with a hard wood handle, razor sharp mirror polished blade, and 18k gold inlaid ducks on the blade. The knife is not signed anywhere, however the sheath has Tak Fukutas marking on it and the knife is obviously high quality when you look at and handle it.
Knife is perfectly weighted and has a full tang. Final picture is of knife placed next to a ruler.
