Dalton knives were made in Kentucky, USA . Often overlooked, his small shop made some impressive knives. Dalton started out making copies of Microtech's HALO and Benchmade's AFO, then graduated into his own designs. All were limited in production and as such he created a following. Many of his models are good investments and have increased in price and are now highly sought after, as they are no longer manufactured. This is a Mint piece with a custom zippered pouch......Features superb action with rock-solid lockup.
