Good info Ron, thanks. It is marked 8 under the Heiser stamp and the modification near the toe can be seen in the photo. It also has a branded top snap which is not present on my other Heiser’s. Bottom photos compares it with the sheath of of one of my other 4-7’s.

You're welcome, Dwight. I'm always happy to shed some light if I can. If you have Pete's book, that sheath I mentioned is identical to yours in terms of snaps.

Brand new from last week!

Model #4-7 with lots of curve.
Black Micarta commando handle with nickel silver hardware

I can see myself using this'un to slice Brisket, Beef Ribs, and/or Baby Backs!

Coach--

Wonder if they would grind it with the trademark side of the blade left flat, and the bevel on the opposite side only?!?

That would help right-handers life me slice straight.

Well Larry,

I never thought about goin’ that far with it!

I was just gonna put an edge on it that would shave frog hair and go at it like that!

Brisket, Beef Ribs, & Baby Backs can be et with a crooked cut just as good as a straight one.

Just sayin’

I have an interesting question for folks to ponder. When Ron says "the shop", he doesn't mean the Randall shop.

So, what "shop" do you guys think did the work? Heiser? Local?

Discuss.
