Manufactured by United Cutlery and up until around 2000 they were pre sold out to dealers which is why they were never pictured in any of the catalogs. These pieces have always been kept to a very limited run of between 1000 and 2000 worldwide. For more information on serial number ranges, models and dates of manufacture go to my Hibben Model Chart page.
