Here is one of the early knives that came out of the Rapid River Knife Co. folk's...just around the corner from Marble's in Michigan's Golden Triangle in the UP.....here is the scoop on how this particular knife came about: Rapid River contacted Marble's back in 1999 during the Stewart/Lauerman era about buying some of these blades from them.....this blade is 52/100 bladesteel that was put in Marble's Sport 99's & LoveLess Sport knives...they purchased a small amount of these and turned them into Custom knives such as this one right here...52/100 steel took several top prizes in the ABS sponsored USA Cuttting Championships....here is the rest of the info I have on this piece:
I purchased over a dozen knives from an estate of a 92 year old fella that had passed....he did not use or carry any of the knives in his collection, but, he always took a stone on all his knives and put his own edge on em...so, this knife has been sharpened once, but never used and never carried...
