How about 9 1/2 inches of solid steel and sex appeal! The most AMAZING vintage, late 80's (Walterboro logo) Walter Brend! Ultra high polish, and notta scratch! with SN 002!!! The fit and finish on this is second to none... except for maybe #001 which I would bet is in Walters personal collection. His tactical customs typically go for more than 3k and they are blackouts not polished. This is the centerpiece of any serious collection. I messaged Walter on facebook and included a screenshot of his reply about the pictures I sent him. There are custom knives and then there is the hand made artistry that is Brend.
