Bumped into a nice little knife. Has Beretta on one side and Japan on the other. It does not look like a junker (most of the others were.) Not original sheath. I paid $7. Tax inc. Is this a Moki blade?

Blade is about 3 inches, slim, wood handle with brass rivets and lanyard hole at the back. Nice wood handle.


I'd add a photo but I don't see how to add one.

Thanks.

Regardless of its exact identification and lineage, that is a helluva deal for $7. When Baretta came out with their line of "branded" knives, they pushed them HARD at our biggest local gun store. I checked them out and they were all nicely made. Good fit and finish, really good materials, but a little heavy on the price. Some of my Baretta toting trap shooters bought them and used them as hunting knives and they really liked them a lot. You can see what they sell now by going to the Berreta we site.

The newer models are cheaper than the old ones, not sure how they achieved that so I won't guess.

See if any of these look familiar and you might contact the guys on this page with your specific questions. https://tinyurl.com/ycun2lbq

As a sidebar, check out the prices on the old new stock with the boxes! Might give you a clue of what yours could be worth. Certainly $7!

Beretta's folders were made by Moki. The smaller fixed blades were made by Moki, some based on their original Lakota designs for Phil Hoffman. Their Loveless Drop Point Hunter, as well as the Beretta Daggers were made by Ichiro Hattori.

Just upload your picture to a photo hosting site and post the url to that picture.

If it's the one that G GIRLYmann posted, it is the Beretta Loveless hunter. There was the version with the burl handle that retailed for somewhere around $125 and one with a zytel(?) handle that retailed for $25-30. I am an admirer of the Loveless designs and am fortunate enough to have both.

I have the Beretta Jess Horn lockback and it is on par with some of my nicest customs... Not my favorite materials (nickel silver bolsters and liners hate Washington State) but the action and fit is superb. 00000PORTRAIT_00000_BURST20191104194547164.jpg
