I have one (1) Microtech HALO II. Partial serrated blade, stonewashed finish and a blade stamp of "08/2002". This item operates perfect, no scratches or dings. I carried it at work in a load bearing vest, but never used it. I've since have gone on to the MAKORA. This HALO II normally sells between $399.00 upward to $500.00. I am letting mine go for the low low price of $200.00 (if thats not low enough, make me a reasonable offer, but don't try to do me that bad) I cover shipping and handling. Check your local laws.
