Vietnam Era Survival knife; Hackman of Finland. 

Designed by Ken Warner and Pete Dickey; this rare knife was made during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Only a few thousand were made by Hackman in Finland with a 1/4" blade and later, a clone was produced by Garcia with a 3/16" blade. The Hackman Survival Knife was intended for private sale to military personnel bound for Vietnam. The Randall Model 18 had made the hollow handle sawback popular with the troops, but Randall could not keep up with demand. Like the Randall this knife featured a watertight hollow handle and a massive 1/4" thick stainless-steel blade. The Hackman Survival Knife has a 7" blade of spear point design with saw teeth on the back. These are genuine kerf-cutting saw teeth, not mere aluminum ripping serrations. It is possible, though very strenuous, to saw off a 2x4 with this knife. 

This knife and sheath are in great condition. The Hackman blade shows no use with only a small scratch on the pommel and finger guard. The sheath is not the original from Brazil but a sturdy leather replacement with a small pouch for a sharpening stone. Judge the condition for yourself from the photos.
