KU01 Kiku Limited Edition
The knife has been in a display case for years but NEVER used. It comes with all factory paperwork and boxes. Including the outside cardboard box.
This is serial number 65 of 100 made, however, I was told at the time by the SOG rep that even though I had serial number 65 thay had only made about 15. Where that ended up I am not sure-but I do not think they made the 100 that were scheduled.
This is a VERY RARE knife
There is one place on the blue felt that got a tear, see pics
