    My tastes have evolved away from tactical fixed blades so have decided to put these Newt Livesays up for sale.

    NEWT LIVESAY AIR ASSAULT - SOLD
    NEWT LIVESAY 101ST AIRBORNE - SOLD

    Newt Livesay makes outstanding knives with great ergonomics and superb differential heat treat (59-60RC edge, softer spine) – and you rarely see them for sale because guys hold onto them!! He is hard to get a hold off and he’s on the verge of retiring so I don’t expect to see much new stock in the future.

    (Please note I live in Singapore so items will take about 2 weeks to reach you - all prices include tracked shipping)

    NEWT LIVESAY AIR ASSAULT
    A classic compact hard use clip point. Deep hollow grind which I reprofiled to a nice thin edge. No chips or edge damage.

    Lightly used, never batoned. Tang stamp is marked “E” = 1999 manufacture.

    Sheath is a foldover thin kydex type, set up for carry on vertical load bearing equipment (LBE) – I set it up for point down on the left side, so my right hand can access from reverse grip.

    Price is SOLD including free tracked shipping worldwide.
