Browning Sportsman Series model 3718 Drop Point hunting knife - Ichiro Hattori Made
While Browning is naturally known for it’s firearms, it’s knives are also well known to collectors. A number of models were designed in the late 1960s for Browning by a young Gil Hibben decades before Rambo III or Star Trek movies made him famous. Designated the Sportsman’s Series they were outright hunting knives, both folding and fixed blades made to complement Browning’s firearms in the field.
Of all the knives that Ichiro Hattori made for Browning, one of the two most prominent models would be the 1970s Sportsman Model 3718.
The Browning 3718 was a Drop Point Hunter with an overall length of 7 3/4″ overall and a blade length of 3 1/2″. Steel was described as 440 by Browning at the time but later disclosed to be Aus8. Handles are made from Africian Ebony.
Thus knife is in excellent condition. no signs of use or sharpening. It was stored in it's sheath in the box and comes with the Browning Sportsman series literature.
