This model is discontinued. Bought about five years ago. This is the updated one with spring latch and Titanium grips. Like new. Never used it to cut rope or anything. Bought to play with mostly but it just sits in a draw. Kept well lubricated. These go for around $450 online but not looking to get that here. Prefer a ftf transaction so you can see the knife and what you are buying. Willing to ship inside USA and your state must allow this knife. Open to offers, I don't use it and want something I will use and need some cash. Looking to buy an aimpoint pro patrol or the like, so interested in a trade plus cash on my end. Also willing to trade for 5.56 or 223. Thanks for looking. Will send more pics per request.
