    i come across the Bob Lum "Encounter" Black tactical folder limited to 600 pcs worldwide. it is a collaboration of Lum and Seki Cut.
    According to the seller each knife is printed as "1 of 600" so there are a total of 600 such knives on the market with printing "1 of 600" with non running numbers. Is this normal? Are there any other knives that are marked in this way?

    i thought that the number will be in running order, although i very much like it to be the first one like most collectors prefer to .


    Any comments?

    Different companies have different ways of numbering them.

    Kershaw I believe used to do the same.

    I've had several Lum Encounters but not numbered. While they are nice knives in general, I found they had a rough around the edges vibe to them. The blade work was outstanding and they were SHARP but the rest of the knife was just average but not bad. The thumbstud was long and sharp. I had to file down the sharp knurling on the thumbstuds a little on the ones I carried. I had the large and smalls versions in both Micarta and G10.I Sold all of them a few years ago.

    What is special about the 1-600 series?

    Yes, it is normal. Quite common.
