Here is a Mod. 18 I have never shown. It was made with a Soligen Humpback Blade and is marked with a Separate S and Stainless along the Ricasso. I really like blades like this. It has a JRB Riveted Sheath that has been modified. Another item that I like.....Modified Sheaths. The keeper strap was moved from the left side to the right. It came with a white stone and the entire rig is in outstanding condition.

Ronnie,
Thanks for posting this guy. Is there evidence of the keeper being "switched"? I only ask because on many double hilt knives it was a common practice to have the keeper strap as is yours. The top sharpened edge stands less of a chance for cutting the strap as does the long sharp edge.
I will note that "most" riveted JRB's I have are opposite of your photo. I was just wondering about evidence, i.e. old stitch marks etc. that showed yours being swapped. Great knife at any rate!
Best, Capt. Chris

Chris in my 3rd photo notice the extra rivets in the upper part of the sheath. And also the original keeper strap has been cut away.
Thanks for the comments.
