This Blackjack Knife has a story to tell that is probably lost to history. For starters it has a Model 5 etched blade stamp on a Skinner configuration (same blade), then the thumb depression was given jimping, the handle was fitted with a brass lined lanyard hole and the edge was micro beveled for more conventional sharpening.
My guess is either a prototype or a custom build by and for one of the knife makers at Blackjack back in the day. Regardless the back story, it's a real hot dog set up by someone who knew what they were doing. If you're looking for bragging rights on a one of a kind Effingham Blackjack or want a top quality hunting knife in the field, this is it. Razor sharp and ready to go.The item "Blackjack Knives Model 5 Skinner One of a Kind Prototype Custom Sheath Included" is in sale since Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
