is one of the finest small Seki City Japan manufactured custom Knivesaround today. This knife is not presently being manufactured and will surely become one of the most desired collectables in the near future. If you are a hunter this is without doubt the best Caping knife you will ever put in your hand. I personally used this model on a Desert Bighorn Sheep ,Barren Ground Caribou, Sitka Blacktail Deer, Cross fox and Whitetail Deer this past year, all lifesize skins were done entirely including the fleshing with this knife. This a light knife great for Back Pack Hunting. Knife and all leather sheath weigh only 1.8 OZ and you must be carefull not to loan or misplace it!!. Designed and manufactured by Mr. Ichiro Hattori considered one of the premiere Master Knife makers in Seki Japan The knife has the following specifics. VG-10 Stainless Blade, Black Micarta Handle so incredible most mistake it for Ebony Wood All leather slip sheath, belt loop with Hattori embosing on belt loop, Tapered tang and blade a true custom knife feature. Overall length 187MM- 6&1/2 " 87MM blade length- 3&1/2" Blade width 7/16THS " 11MM. This is a brand new never used ,carried, or sharpened Knife It has not been put in the sheath. If You like I will ship one in the box unopened. This auction is for the exact knife pictured ,I have several more still in the box from Japan. Trust me on this one, every Guide and Outfitter I have shown this knife too wanted it as part or all of their tip!!!! I was lucky to get out of the hunting camps with it!!!! If you know Japanese Knife Makers and you know the Reputation of Seki City Japan then you know this is an extremely rare and unusual knife for its size and shape, not to mention that it holds an edge second to none. Shipping will be a flat $6.50 USPS Priority Mail and I will include Insurance. No Reserve so this one is the one you want to get the rest will be pricey. Good luck, feel free to email any and all questions and look for more future auctions of special knives. Thanks
