Anyone want Yarborough Knife?

Anyone want a Yarborough knife?

This seems to be serial number 0215 being offered for sale on a Chris Reeves Knives Facebook page which is not in any way affiliated with Chris Reeve Knives.

Person offering it for sale is, to the best of my knowledge, not Special Forces.

this was my response to a conversation yesterday in another CRK forum over that same knife by same person being offered for sale.
It was taken down from that page and re-posted to the above page which I didn't know existed until a few minutes ago.

It's sold, at significantly less than advertised.

Should have it by the end of next week. The knife has 2 blackhawk sheaths, one was modified for web mount, the other stock. My understanding is blackhawk was the sheath source for the early issues.

That knife was issued to LTC Johnny Strain if you want the name with it.

I know Johnny Strain and would be surprised that he would knowingly part with it.
