    I'm a cheesehead from back in the early days but have strayed from the infestation.

    Anyone recognize this model? Heard only 7 were made.

    No guesses...it an OD green original Ratweiler from the Knob Creek show back in 2007 I believe. The made only 7 I was told and at the time Rats only came in black and rarely tan...so this was kind of a big deal to be in this color.

    Unfortunately that's a fake. Sorry brother......I can feel your pain on that one.

    Send it to me and I will turn it over to the proper authorities.

    Again......sorry to be the bearer of bad news. If it helps any, I'll go ahead and pay shipping costs to help take away a little sting from this.

    Iron City.......steer clear from Andy. He does this all the time......he wants to resell it as genuine, knowing its a fake.

    I want the best for everyone here and I have the proper connections to have the criminals who made this tracked down. All I need is the knife to hand it over to the proper officials.

    Thanks for the understanding, and again I'm sorry for your loss.

    Again......because I'm a stand up guy, I'm still willing to pay shipping for you brother.

    Oh no SB wish I knew sooner. I sent it off today to Andy. He offered a few skunked beers and I figured I would cut my losses.

    Those Aussie are ruthless. Guess all those venemous snakes and Great Whites down under toughen one up.

    Ah well, live and learn. Cheers mate!

    Looks like you got bit twice Iron. That's a tough one. Next time, do yourself a favor and give me a heads up before you post. I've got your back brother.

    Yep. Those were a big deal indeed. IIRC, there were a handful each of OD green, plain tan, urban camo, desert camo....that may have been it. I tried hard to get a proxy for the plain tan, but I had to settle for a desert camo (long since gone).

    Great score! :thumbup:

    Ah 360, I remember you from back in the day, been awhile since I stopped by this wall of cheese.

    The one I had that got away was the Howling Fat and an original Camp Tramp. I have a Howling Rat, and have this Ratweiler... but like both of those better. Would trade those two for the HF and CT, but ahhh well.
