This custom made knife by Chris Reeve was produced in December 2000. The knife is in mint condition and has never been used. It is out of my husband's own collection and has been handled lovingly and lived in the box and out of the sheath for 15 years.This knife is forged from a single piece of A2 steel so that the blade and the hollow utility handle are one and not joined by a weld. The handle has a screw top cap that opens to allow tools to be stored in it. The cap is made of D655 Aluminum The knife comes in its original box with certificate signed by Chris Reeve and insert papers indicating care instructions.
The knife with cap in place has a length of 12 1/2 inches. The blade is 7 1/2 inches long and is 1 3/16 inch wide at the base. There is a small 1 1/4 inch length of serrations near the handle. The blade is marked on one side with the CR logo and on the other side with Made in USA. The handle with cap in place is 5 inches long. The cap has a black cord lanyard. The leather sheath bears the Chris Reeve logo on the front, has a button tab to keep the knife in place when sheathed, and has black cord lanyards at the top and bottom of the sheath. The back of the sheath is stamped Feller Casemakers Meridian, ID 83642 USA.
Chris Reeve is one of the premier cutlers in the USA and this is a very desirable knife that is no longer in production.
