Early First Design Rick Bowels Special (RBS) Limited Edition.
I believe these First Edition Specials were limited to approx. 350 knives.
Stainless Steel blade. Serial number RBS 199.
I do not know what type of hardwood the handle is, but it has a Nickel/Silver Hilt and Butt cap. Black and Aluminum spacers.
In my opinion, the First Edition Specials are slightly less ugly than the current skinners being produced. Needless to say, I am not a fan or collector of this model, hence the low price!
