This Lum Tanto is an excellent example of Vaughn's knife making skill. Originally co-designed in the 1980's by Bob Lum and Vaughn Neeley, this is an amazing knife. Vaughn says very few knives give him the sense of magic this knife possesses. He says this knife feels powerful just to hold it. As usual, the fit, grind and finish are perfect. The flats are bead blasted and the bevels are polished. This type of finish was developed by Vaughn in the 1980's it is hard to accomplish but its amazing beauty is worth all the effort. The handle is hand sculpted from a single block of premium black linen Micarta. It is very ergonomic it is truly a work of great work of art.

Comes with the exceptional sheath made by Vaughn, one of the best sheath designs I have ever seen.

This is a very special knife, would be hard to replace or upgrade.

Superb work by a great knife maker Vaughn Neeley, made by a great guy.
My Neeley Trio is matched up with the Lumb Tanto # 032, SF Bowie # 032, and SF Chute # 032 with an amazing “Sambar Stag” Handle with Shoulder Holster Concealed carry sheath (The trio are all numbered 032).

This is indeed very rare set of Vaughn’s knifes! I am very proud to have these knives in my collection. All models are serialized - Example: 032 = Serial Number, TN = Model, VN = Vaughn Neeley, and 0709 = Month / Year of Production.
