I'll see if we can find out who the owner was.

Apparently someone has started faking these, at least one was shown on FBook from the Eugene, OR show that appeared to be a legitimate Chris Reeve Green Beret with a laser etch of Yarborough and serial number. So keep an eye out for that BS as well.

Good to know, if we hear from LTC Tripp I can contact the dealer either way.

Was thus the wanenmacher Tulsa show? If so I think that is the fake lasered green beret knife I mentioned. Or there may have been more than 1. The serial I saw posted elsewhere was 0376. If so Bill is being made aware.

I was incorrect above in assuming it was the Oregon knife show.

Yep that's the one, I miss read the number in my pic through the glass. If I had known it was a fake, I'd have been harder on the guy. On the other hand, glad to clear this one up.
I knew you guys would track down the truth...

If the Bill Harsey/Chris Reeve Signature on the blade is on the same side as the Yarborough & S/N it's not a real Yarboroug, at best it's a GB Knife that someone turned into a Fake "Y"!!
