The Leupold Limited Edition knives were produced in 2006 for Leupold and distributed by Big Rock Sports. They were given approximately 500 knives to sell. Those knives are very collectible. This year Leupold had more of these knives made. They made 1,500 of them, and they are not the same as the original ones.
So, how do you tell the difference? Good question. The first thing to look at is the top of the blade where it meets the grips. The original ones were smooth. The second models have notches cut into the blade. That is the easiest way to tell.
So don’t be fooled by seller’s descriptions. Think about it. The original knives that were made, well those knives sell for over $100. Now you have some knives being offered for a fraction of that. Some sellers are offering to sell huge lots of them. Well, that is easy to do when there are about 1,500 of them out there. Don’t be fooled by what is written or described. There are only 500 of the original knives made. And what is being offered right now on eBay is the second model of the LE knives.
