You're probably wondering why this one is so cheap.... Here is the story....
Dirk took a "stab" (pun intended) at having one of his most popular designs, the LMRK, made in production form. To say the least, he was not thrilled with the way they came out, so he is just trying to get his money back out of them. We have these at an unbelievable price.
- Entirely USA MADE
- 1095 Carbon Steel
- Kydex sheath included
- Black Cerakote Finish
- Has a great grip and is a very sturdy knife.
- No box
- Fit & Finish is NOT PERFECT, (If you're looking for perfection, see his Customs here: https://riversedgecutlery.com/dirk-pinkerton-knives/) Some may even have a double maker stamp...lol
- Not the best fit for the Kydex sheath.
To Sum it up, These are great USA made , hard use knives made for working, not collecting at a VERY fair price.

THIS IS NOT A CUSTOM MADE KNIFE BY PINKERTON, THIS IS A PINKERTON DESIGN PRODUCTION MADE IN THE USA.
A little about Dirk from his website:
I began seriously making knives in 2005. That was when I purchased my first serious grinder. Prior to that I my interest in making knives grew from a life long interest in knives. My father always carried a knife and felt it was essential tool. While he could appreciate the work and craftsmanship that went into a beautiful knife, he always believed them to be a tool, first. I believe that is where I learned my design principals for knife. Most of my work is toward straight forward, functional knives designed toward a task.
My professional career was 18 years in the private security field for a large corporation. In that time I was able to train and work closely with several protection details, law enforcement, S.W.A.T., fire and life rescue, various military units and the Secret Service. Through this experience I began to understand how knives were looked upon as tools and weapons. This greatly influenced how I would design knives.
During this time, I began collecting knives and became friends with Darrel Ralph. He was my mentor and he essentially opened the door to my knife making career. I used to bug him to make me knife that I designed. Finally, he told me he made his designs and that if I wanted a particular design, I should make it. So, I did.
My knives are in use with US Military and Law Enforcement also around the world with many countries military and law enforcement along with civilians who just need a good knife for utility or self defense.
*Please note, due to the fact that these are being sold on consignment from the maker and are at a blowout price, there are no refunds or exchanges. Also, these do not fall under our free shipping policy, so there is a flat $4.00 charge for first class shipping on this item. We hope you understand.

I found this to be well made and balanced. It fits comfortably in the hand. I had to modify the sheath. Which is absolutely ok by me. I'm going to have another one made. Best $50 I've spent! My friend is extremely happy with his also!! Which he blindly purchased!
