Lynn C. Thompson Signature Knife - The Oyabun Limited is a high-end collectible version of our Oyabun. It shares features in common with the standard model in terms of functionality and appearance but differs markedly in the materials used in its construction. It also has the value of being a collectible keepsake in that only 3500 have been produced. Each is individually serial numbered, and each box will be personally signed by Lynn C. Thompson himself! The premium S35VN steel in the blade is a costly powdered steel that is heat treated to Rc 59-60 and sub zero quenched. It has been given an attractive two-tone line grain finish on the blade flats, and a high satin polish on the blade bevels. Most noticeably, the handle frame is milled from two solid billets of 6061 aluminum to create the bolster and pommel, which have been given a fine mirror polished finish. The handle also features CNC machined G-10 slabs with a diamond checkering pattern for a good secure grip.
"I like flashy knives and when they are collectable limited editions with serial numbers made out of top pf the line material, I like them even more. That’s why I think you’re going to love our Oyabun Limited. Only 3500 pieces will ever be made. All individually serial numbered with 7075 aluminum frames, CNC machined handle scales that come fully checkered just like my original tanto and a high polished two tone S35VN blade! And better still, all this flash and high performance is backed up by our state-of-the-art leaf spring lock and secondary safety so you know it won’t fold on your hand. Now you’ve got a knife that’s worth every penny asked (just compare) and has tremendous collector appeal/appreciation!!!" - Lynn Thompson
