It's a 25th Anniversary Delica. It was a limited production (500 pieces) knife back in 2003. The bolsters are special "bug" damascus, which was made by Ed Schempp especially for them. Scales are honey worm-jigged bone. Should have come in a cocobolo presentation box. MSRP was $350. Prices for them recently have been erratic, but higher than that. If you want a bit more info on the knife, you can download the 2003 Spyderco dealer catalog from here...
Thank you for the information sir. I assumed it was limited # 118 but had no clue about anything else . I'm selling off all my customs and going back to Spyderco. My friend showed me his NATIVE and it locks-up like a vault. I will buy one as soon as the snow goes away here in Denver. I'm also from N.Y. Livingston Manor in Sullivan county. Beautiful place. It is nice to meet you. Thanks again for the info.
