    This is a repro of a Model 1-7. The story I read from Mike Stewart on the defunct knifeforums was that these were leftover Blackjack blanks. In that thread there was mention of drawing the temper of the shank down. This is marked 2002 and is 154CM. Brass handguard. Location is Bark River, MI instead of Escanaba so it's from the early days of BRKT. Leather stacked handle. The knife is crazy insanely sharp and has looks to be nearly unused. Previous owner did store in sheath so the sheath is a little marked up from the brass. $225 shipped

    Next is a Bark River Sandstorm. 12c27 steel. Lightly stropped once i think as you can see in the photo. Black and green micarta in a mortised tang with aluminum handguard, feels frackin great in the hand. Sheath is super nice and was made by Sullivans in Florida. IIRC that shop has since burned down and isnt in production anymore. $175 shipped

    I think I came in a little high on price. Let's do $200 for the 1-7 and $140 for the Sandstorm.

    A little wiggle room on the Sandstorm, less so on the 1-7.
