This is Bill Johnson's classic Sub-Hilt Fighter, the knife that put him on the map, special ordered directly from him.  It has all his usual features -- mirror finish, large indent thumb gimping, tapered tang and black liner -- plus stabilized wood instead of the usual micarta handle scales.  It is extremely comfortable in the hind.
