Herewith, a rare example from Angus Trim’s tactical range that he made a couple of rounds of back in 2007-8.

This was purchased in 2008. Christian Fletcher made the scabbard as a custom job. As I was in the army at the time, I had intended to take it on my next deployment, so I had the local pack mods man make a field sheath to protect the scabbard and enable attachment to a webbing belt, as the pictures show.

I have never ever cut anything with it. It still has the factory edge that Gus put on it before hot-bluing the blade. It’s damn sharp.

This model was from a round not made with grip scales, although Gus did include rivet holes in the tang for those who wanted to have them made.

The dimensions are:

Total length: 78cm, 28 3/4 inches
Hilt from guard to pommel: 17.8cm, 7 inches
Width across guard quillons end to end: 8.9cm, 3.5 inches
Blade tip to guard: 51cm, 21 1/4 inches
Blade tapers for last 7 inches of blade
Point of balance: 3.5 inches from guard
Weight: 860g

Price of USD$750 includes shipping to USA from Australia, which is fast and reliable.
