    A good friend and son who I was helping at gun shows asked me to do some research for prices on some of the knifes and for my help, he gifted this knife to me. He could not remember the custom knife maker’s name, but GV is stamped onto the blade. The blades cutting edge is 2”, and the overall length is 4-3/4”. The knife is retained in its sheath with a snap. I will probably never cut anything with it, but it is still a neat little knife.

    Never seen one with a snap like that before. That is indeed very cool. I wouldn’t let it go either.

    Yes, the snap is certainly unique.

    I did a internet research and learned the knife maker’s name is Gerald(Gerry)Vassella. I am not sure if Vassella is still making knives, but found some of his knives both new and a few slightly used on some online custom knife retailers. Arizona Knives had a few of his neck knives along with fixed blades, and switch blades. Pricey.
