It is very difficult to call this Ultimate Runt 2 a production knife when so much custom work and talent went into its creation. The Robert Eggerling Spotted Star Damascus is fantastic; the Bruce Shaw fully engraved frame is richly and exquisitely detailed - magnificent; even the pivot pin is engraved. The black lip pearl used for the frame and push button inlays is the best I have ever seen. The full description and 3-10-05 date of completion is etched into the display box - a very professional and distinguished touch by David and the Pro-Tech team. This is a beautiful knife - a work of art - and an excellent addition to any collection.
