Rope Cutting Competitions have become a spectator sport and are showing up more and more at knife shows around the country. The only two men to win an American Bladesmith (ABS) World Cutting Championship are James Crowell and Reggie Barker. Jim Crowell is an Arkansas Bladesmith who's hand forged knives are eagerly sought by both collectors and users. Reggie Barker, who is from Louisiana, has won cutting championships all over the country, including both the 2004 and 2005 ABS World Championship Cutting Competitions. These two men, uniquely fitted to design a cutting competition level knife, have joined together to design this knife for Browning®.

Blade measures 1-7/8" wide at its widest point and is ground from 1/4" stock. Includes a wrist lanyard and top-grain leather sheath. Measures 15" tip to butt and weighs 17.4 oz. Certificate of Authenticity is signed by both designers. Suggested retail is $149.99.
