So, we are assuming that this knife was made sometime in the late 1980's or early 1990's. In fact, it is numbered "005". We are not sure if this is the 5th knife Rick made, or if it is the 5th knife of this type - whichever it is, this is an early example of his work. The blade is Damascus, and is in unused condition.
Both the single finger guard and the butt cap are also Damascus. The handle is an unknown wood type, with nice grains. Includes a Bob Schrap leather pouch-type belt sheath.A great knife for hunting season.
