Since I have been grounded by our Governor,  I have been sitting around sifting through the collection and came across this pendant.  I know I bought it off a member on the old site before it was hacked but can't remember who? Don't even remember what I paid for it. Neither really matters, but as I was looking at it I noticed it was stamped with 03 on the one side.  This made me wonder if it was made in 2003 or if the maker numbered each one he made.  I have been around this forum since 2002 so it is possible I bought the pendant in 2003.  I don't remember if the chain came with the pendant...… I don't think it did?

Does any other member have another like this one and is it stamped with a number ???
Just curious...… I have a few microtech items I have accumulated from--- members---at Blade show---local knife shows---etc...and I remember where I got almost all of them.  But this pendant got me to wondering??

No. 03, Interesting piece. ...These items are hot these days considering Susans No.3 collection. If this is from Microtech it could be very collectable?

Microtech made these for Bladeshow a few years ago. I had about 20 of them, not that rare

I've had one hanging from the rear view mirror of my truck since '03. They didn't come with the chain or key ring.

I don't think these came from Microtech. I seem to remember machinist making and offering these on the forum about 15 years ago. Number 54 on mine. Don't know if its a serial number? The two I have came with the chain pictured.

Checked mine yesterday and it's no. 13. Had the chain that sharkskin pictured.

The answer is two fold- a member here made a run of these 15 or so years ago and Microtech also made a few. I picked up a bunch at Blade a few years ago, along with the claw logo pendants as well. I'll look around for them later and post a pic

diverdown, Were you the guy that did custom inserts, like the ones on this Amphibian, back in the day? Amphib skins SSS.jpg

That may have been Frank Norsea. But that was a LONG time ago

I remember Frank Norsea.  He did do some very nice custom inserts & it sure was a LONG time ago(around 1999--2004). If my memory is still correct, I think he was from the east coast (New York- Jersey area???).

Your inserts look like some I bought from a member named D-Tex.  Around 12 years ago I bought a mini-socom he did that had the sting-ray inserts like your knife.  I think he was from Texas and every once in awhile he still shows up in Microholics forum to check out what's up.

BigBob,
You are correct. It was D-tex and we became friendly on Microholics. I sent him that knife and he did the inserts for me for no charge. Very nice guy. Ahh the good old days! Frank did the more difficult inserts, like abalone and hard materials that required grinding and fitting precision. Also a nice guy.
