A superb example of high-quality restoration and customization of a vintage blade. Those of you who have been around this stuff for a while may recognize the logo that was created by Vlad. He made a dynamite set of purple heart scales, imbedded his brass logo at the butt, and covered them with generous coats of CA. The finish is practically flawless. It also comes with a matching hinged box, also made from purple heart. The detail is amazing. I haven’t seen anything else coming from Vlad, so this may be it unless someone else decides to part with some of his astounding craftsmanship.
