This is an early run made before Fobos started producing this same knife on their own. They owe a lot to BRK in helping them get established as a top rate custom knife maker. This is one of the coolest knives I have ever actually seen or owned. It is a very hard knife to find, as they have been discontinued for many years and they are highly sought after by collectors. I got this beauty in a deal years ago from another collector.
I have never used it, and it's just sat in my collection. I dont know the history of the knife with the original owner, besides the fact that he used it to take pictures with, as it's a stunning design. The knife is an absolute beast, made from BRK's renowned CPM3V steel. The overall length is 14.5" with a 9" blade.
The knife does have some light scratches on the blade, and the sheath has some imperfections. I tried to point the main ones out in the last 2 photos. There is a light small scratch behind the BRK logo (between the logo & the scale). The small area is slightly polished, so I'm guessing the past owner smoothed over the spot (see pictures). There is a tiny slightly scratched area on the opposite side, also between the FOBOS logo & the scale (see pictures).
The factory brown leather sheath has a rough spot (see picture) on the top leather strap, as well as a deep crease on the lower leather strap (see picture). Also some light scratch on the lower area (see picture) of the front of the sheath. The factory box shows some wear from storage.I wish I could keep it.
