Okay, folks, I am re-listing the pair of Neil Blackwood knives, selling for a friend, as well as introducing a one-of-a-kind Mad Dog. The Mad Dog I am also selling for a friend.
Let's do the Mad Dog first.
This is a Mad Dog Mirage X knife, and is the ONLY one like it, period.
This knife is new. Never been used, carried, nada. It has been fondled, caressed, and replaced in the sheath, then the bag, then stored.
It is similar to the EOD model, but with some very distinct differences from the EOD.
If you're not familiar with the Mirage X ceramics, these are about as far from the Boker or Kyocera ceramic knives as you can get. Kevin used to pound these thru 55 gallon drums during demos.
This is the only all-white Mirage X blade I have ever seen in person.
The handle on this knife is slimmer than the EOD - this handle is the same size as a mid-grip/ thin-grip Bear Cat, and it comes with a slip sheath instead of a high ride or drop-leg (ATAK) sheath.
The knife is 9 5/8 inch OAL, with a 5 3/16 inch blade and a 4 7/16 inch handle.
I borrowed the following from Miles Welze - it's not his ad copy, since I saw this first on the old MD Tactical site way back when, so I'm okay with re-posting it here
Summary: this is a Mad Dog Knives Mirage - X ceramic knife. This knife is extremely sought after is a very unique piece. The Mirage-X line is Mad Dog's 2nd generation of non-metallic blades, far superior to previous attempts of a usable non-metallic blade. Mirage-X blades are used around the world by elite military and law enforcement operators for covert operations to EOD teams who prefer non-metallic, non galvanic signature.
Edge Holding: abrasion resistance has a whole new meaning. With a hardness approaching a diamond, the Mirage-X holds and edge better than any other knife made. Unlike the fragile ceramic knives on the market today, the Mirage-X is not made of simple alumina ceramic. The Mirage-X can cut glass and shave steel off a SEAL ATAK without going dull.
Magnetically Inert: The Mirage-X has absolutely zero magnetic permeability. It is far safer than titanium to use around magnetically or capacitively triggered ordnance. The Mirage-X is simply invisible to all metal detectors.
I'm asking $1350 for this knife delivered in USA, payment via paypal. If you live outside USA, the buyer pays shipping AND you'll warrant that the knife is acceptable to go thru customs, etc. Price drop of $300!!
Please email me if interested in this knife - I am not interested in trades at this time for this knife and I thank you for your interest.
Pretty, ain't she?
As noted, please email me if you're interested in the knife - thanks for looking!
