It was initially designed as the dealer exclusive knife of Denmark Sporting Goods in Orlando, FL. The design was subsequently used for the RKS-2 knife.After all of the RKS-2 knives were issued, this model became the RMK non-catalog "Denmark Special" knife. Historical note regarding the RKS-2 (by Rhett Stidham, founder of the Randall Knife Society, in a 7/21/2009 internet posting): This knife was first offered to the membership in 1995. 338 Micarta handle knives and 298 stag handle knives were made. Each knife has a 4-1/2 include blade of 3/16 inch 440B stainless. Each knife will be etched on the back of the blade with "RKS knife number / member number". The stag version has brass and red spacers and the single hilt will be brass. A round 1/2 diameter brass RKS shield will be inlaid in the butt of the stag handle.
A brown Sullivan sheath was included with each stag knife and each sheath had the Society logo on the front... The black micarta version of the RKS2 club knife has aluminum and black spacers and a border patrol handle with a duralumin crow's beak butt. The single hilt will be nickel silver. A round 1/2 inch diameter RKS silver shield will be inlaid in the front side of the handle.
This knife came with a black Sullivan sheath with the society logo on the front... The knife is in "excellent to nearly new" condition. I have not used, carried, sheathed or sharpened the knife. It has been displayed, and handled by me a few times.
The blade looks very good with a couple of minor spots and scuffs. Looks to have original shop edge. The handle looks good and feels great in the hand. Sheath looks great with minor storage wear.
