    A classic MOD survival knife, all original inc sheath and unfinished scales. The only thing that has changed is the edge. As standard they have a pretty useless edge which is why i sent this to Longstrider for a hand finished edge to be put on it, ( cost £20 ). As you can see its now got a really nice, hand finished polished edge that is ultra sharp and easy to maintain. As the scales are what i call unfinished, i believe that is how they are left, this would look really nice with the scales sanded down to your liking. Its got the NATO stock no on both the scales and sheath.
    I believe these are about £57 new, so with the Longstrider treatment id like £55 inc of postage.

    It was re profiled and sharpened. Although the one on Heinnes website looks the same I'm not actually sure it is as I don't think the original was made by that maker.

    the original awsn't made by that guy, but he makes them by the same spec and I think he might be the only place to get them now.. (other than the webtex copies..).

    I'm interested though mate, are you up for trades?

    Enzo trapper, 01 steel, curly birch scales, sheah and box Practically new, only ever used once then oiled and put back in box. new they cost around £100, but I'd estimate the trade value around 70% of that price. pm me if you're interetsed, I can send you a picture.

    The M.O.D. knife issued to (some) British forces was produced by different makers, according to contract
    and if you look hard enough can be found as new for under £35......

    Thats as maybe but with the Longstrider treatment, the above MOD knife is better than new.

    so, if you add it all up, new knife, delivery, longstrider treatment, P&P etc, then i reckon this is about right.

    Thanks for the advice chaps. All is I can say is that my MOD knife is a world away from how they come out of the factory.

    Ive owned a couple of these MOD knives and have to say they need tones of work out of the box so this is a bargain for a re-worked and sharpened one,

    Have a free bump on me mate,
