Definitions:
FPR – First Production Run (signature edition)
A – an A after a model number signifies “Autographed” edition which is a FPR edition


Misc Information:
A set of Dark Blade Series were made by Smokey Mountain Knife works. (includining Silver shadow(black), Double shadow(black), highlander (black), raven, raptor, warbird bowie and warbird dagger)
One run of 500 units is marked Collectors Matched Set
One run of 250 units is marked Signature Edition-First Production Run- 1of 250


Lonecub handled the sale (for Gil Hibben) of a special run of "Internet Exclusive Bronze editions".
Bronze 70th birthday highlander
Bronze Raptor Knife
Bronze Dragon Lord Knife 
Bronze Hornet Dagger
Bronze Odyssey Bowie Knife
Each of these runs had 15 knives, 14 serial numbered and 1 prototype, they came with a signed and serial numbered display stand and all but the Highlander came with COAs


Display Stands:
The first display stands for gold versions was for the raven in 1993
The first stand for a non gold knife was for the warbird in 1995
They have made stands for both regular and gold editions ever since althought they have all been discontinued.


The Edge Company made a select run of Hibben knives all marked The Edge Company. Knives that I have seen with this have been a Dragon lord and it is rumored that they had some silver shadows.
I purchased a regular edition Raven Bowie and in the box was a card from The Edge Company Onyx Club, it says “Special Onyx Customer Series Gil Hibben Raven Dagger & Raven Stiletto Set Special Autograph Edition 1993” The knife had no special markings and even Gil and Linda do not know what a Raven stiletto would be.
