Wanted - Race Rescue Knive - Desperate

Have been looking since November now and totally failed to get one of these knives.
Any dealer on here that can supply me with on can you please PM me. Must be the genuine Gerber article.
Its the blunt end knife with the shackle key I want. Retail Price paid and can collect if in Hampshire.

Andy,

Sorry mate I'm being picky. The one I want is in the photo. Bit like Rocking Horse pooh to get hold of. The fold up ones you linked to are easy to find.

I spoke to my friendly local chandlery today, they say that Gerber has dropped this item and replaced it with the Gerber River Shorty Rescue Knife:

http://www.seamarknunn.com/catalog/i...tem17093_1.jpg

They think though that someone else intends to make a similar item with the proper shackle key and hooked end, no news of who and when though.

Unless you can find someone with old stock it looks like you'll struggle to find one of the originals.
