    Just got this today very happy with it bought it on a wim without research but had a look up about it and they seem a bit rare.the man who invented it Charles brewer-caritas is a real life Indiana jones who's made some amazing discoverys in Venezuela and holds a fire lighting record with sticks in 2.7 seconds !!!!
    Heres a nice story about his life

    heres a picture of my knife not the best quality picture but gives an idea it also has it's original survival kit unopened until I got it oooops and a compass in the cap

    not sure of its value so if anyone has a rough idea would be nice but not really important :)

    Nice find. I seem to recall seeing something similar (although they didn't seem to be as good quality) 25 or 30 years ago when I was getting into the outdoors.

    Cheers, Michael.
