I'll try to remember to get some dimensions and more pictures later this week.

Per Bill this was an early use of the 2 finger grooves that eventually were incorporated is the Yarborough. As mentioned Bill confirmed he would have sent this out with a sheath, but this one's sheath was lost before I bought it. Note no jimping and hidden tang on this one. Another similar version of this blade type was posted here note slightly different handle features (post 11):

This version has heavy thumb ramp jimping and Bill's "stepped" grip vs the one or two finger groove style. Also per "signed knife" this knife may have been part of a batch of 12, 2 prototypes + 10 additional Harsey shop made. I assume this knife is similar enough to have been part of that same group.
