    Nice one. I see no red flags. These aint cheap especially in the condition yours is in. Plus I have heard the take down versions sometimes command a small premium over the non take down version. You can find these online for dealer prices but I would guess approx $600+. Happy to stand corrected on this

    I don't like the fit of the grip plate around the disassembly button, and correct me if I'm wrong but this one has the brass or copper looking assembly pins that is a sign of these new fakes? Originals are steel right? (Know mine is the earlier version but I believe they all used the steel pins) Kevin.

    Kevin,

    You may be correct. But to me (from these pictures) the pins don't look brass or copper. I could be wrong, and if so, then I would agree with you.

    Kevin i think the rivets are rusted and not made of copper, i think its a good knife.
    If the rivets are copper then it would be a red flag.

    I could be wrong thats for sure, just struck me that the rest of the knife has no rust on the fittings and every pin is rusted? Kevin.

    i see a lot of corrosion/patina on the knife where it aint been polished by hand or lanyard
    i think the same black/brown patina is on the rivets, otherwise when they would be copper/bronze the colour would slightly be different, might even be greenish.
    Here the pics so you can see what i mean.
