This rare South African Dagger by Chris Reeve Knives is crafted from a solid piece of steel. There were only 25 pieces made in this 9" blade size. The double edged blade features a KG GunKote finish, .258" blade stock and 1.415" blade depth, integral construction. Comes with original black leather sheath. This piece has very minor signs of handling. Initials lightly scratched into the butt cap. Numbered 4/25. Original sheath is included and does show light signs of handling. The South African Dagger is arguably the most rare OPK ever made by CRK. No box/papers. From the previous owner: "I inquired with Chris Reeve Knives about this piece. This is what they said: Yes, this is a pretty rare piece. Simply named the 9" Dagger, it is one of 25 and part of a set of 25 seven inch daggers and 25 nine inch daggers made in South Africa. When we got to the USA, we introduced the 5.5" series of One Piece Knives and made 25 in that size too. All the knives would be from A2."

Reeve, Chris
Chris Reeve Knives began operations on January 1, 1984, in a one-car garage in Durban, South Africa, when Chris moved from full-time Tool and Die Maker/part time knife maker to full-time knife maker. For a couple years he was the only employee but gradually and steadily, the company has grown to reach its present position as a well equipped manufacturing company and a noted brand in the industry. The road between 1984 and today has not always been smooth. For many years, the endeavor was under-funded but with determination, Chris and Anne put all they had into producing the best knives possible, within the resources available. In March 1989, they moved from their native South Africa and settled in Boise, Idaho. That move in itself was a major undertaking but vital for the future of the company. Chris has always "pushed the envelope". Whether on a motorcycle or behind a belt grinder, he dreamed of being a world champion. He did not win a motorcycle world championship but in many respects, the standing of CRK today represents one. His induction into the Cutlery Hall of Fame in June 2015 could be considered his championship trophy. The single thought in Chris' mind has always been to design every model with deliberation, taking into account how the knife works, its intended purpose and the most appropriate materials. On this foundation, CRK is a vibrant business, has a great staff of well-trained employees, and remains a company with a worldwide reputation for raising the standards bar - "pushing the envelope" - for the industry.
