This is a limited price while supplies last. These are PRODUCTION SAMPLES. At the time they were made we were still obligated to put the COO (Country of Origin) on the blade itself so some may have that etched on the blade, some may not. With the final production versions COO was eventually removed as we got an exemption because COO was already present on the packaging. They are operationally exactly the same as the production run. They still come with the case as pictured.
There was no sense to let these just sit here so we are letting them go at this amazing price while they last.
