This was the knife that started it all!  A true one off. A hand stamped and numbered piece of Vulture's beginning.  The Investment Grade Cholera Fixed Blade Knife is a true working piece of functional art that will last for generations.  With over 15 years of design tweeking for field work William has made over 16 variations before the Cholera was finished into what you see now.  While this blade has the same gereral profile as it's Production Grade brother, it is intended to be a tool and has a solid spine without the false edge.  The antiqued finish is reminiscent of the look and feel of William's Grandfather's tools that were handed down to him by his father and are held in close regard.

The Cholera was named from the disease that can live in the belly of a Vulture!  A nasty and difficult aliment to overcome seemed like a perfect name for a blade profile that has been in refinement over William’s career in the field and is hard to beat.  The design is ultra simple yet refined for the detail seeking connoisseur.  The blades design was intended as a "All Mountain" knife and is a modified Gyuto design, a Japanese word that means "meat sword." The grind profile is a Single to Zero with a convex leather stroped finished edge (Scandi) and has a hand rubbed antiqued natural finish allowing the 01 Tool Steel to really show it's carbon nature.  A 2.5" length of the spine on the blade has a section that has been brought to a true 90 degree allowing you shave tons of spark from a fire steel while keeping the tremendously sharp cutting edge away from yourself.  The G10 scales have been upgraded from the traditional linen micarta and are lightly polished to give it that worn in look right from the factory.  The Sheath is a basic formed kydex with an adjustable Tek-Loc belt mount in the rear which allows you to rig the knife in both the veriticle and horizontal orientations.
