ID:	461792Was hoping someone can tell me what I have. I've taken it to some local shows and have gotten answers from all across the board, found this site and figured it was my best shot. I think it is a early prototype take down, instead of the whole end (hilt?) coming off it rotates. Any and all help greatly appreciated. More pics available, Thanks.Click image for larger version.

    Not a 'prototype' with an R.B.Nr. code on it, IMO.........

    Sorry to be so uninformed but what is a R.B.N. code I know next to nothing about these knives except what I was told at a couple local shows and that was too varied to know what to believe, BTW I just photographed any mark I could find Thanks

    Not sure which side your calling the right but to point out the unusual part to me is the fact that the top rotates instead of sliding off Click image for larger version.

    At first I thought the bolster was cut in half but I see the runner is part of half of it.
    Here is a pic of the norm so not sure, this is a new one to me.
    I also am not up on these as some are as I have only one period and one Bunds.
