Never used, carried or sharpened, Al Mar would order 200 pieces of a new pattern from the factory in Seki-Japan that were sent out to the dealers to test the market. If they sold well they went into full production. The very early ones were prefixed with the letters "PP" Pre-Production (later the PP was dropped and only numbers were used). You must be 18 years old to buy or bid. It is the buyers responsibility to check their Federal, State and local laws/regulations regarding purchase, usage and ownership of this knife.
