This model, the RG-69, was made in Seki City, Japan by G. Sakai, (which also made Al Mar's fixed blades), and resembles Cold Steel's Trailmaster Bowie. This is a quality Seki, Japan knife. The Blade which measures 9 1/2" is very sharp and is marked as "U2X Steel".
Overall length is 14 1/4". Features a brass finger guard and non-slip rubberized Kraton handles with a lanyard hole. Excellent balance and feel. Comes with the original Rigid leather belt sheath in great condition.
This knife is used, it has some scratches and sharpening marks on the tip especially on the right side but otherwise the blade shows little use. Judge for yourself from the photos. A great defensive or collectible knife.
