  • Sheath – Was made by Heiser and is factory dyed black. The sheath is in great condition with a minor cut on the inside of the keeper strap. This can be seen in the pictures, the cut doesn’t go thru the leather. The sheath has metal black glove snaps that are in great condition.

  • This is a very unique fighter with the options selected. Ebony was first offered in the Randall catalog in 1954, this isn’t the typical handle material that is normally seen.
  • Thanks for viewing !
