R1 Military Classic – Japan


  • Now you can own an exact replica of this original classic for a very reasonable price.
  • But make no mistake, our R1 Military Classic is not just a showpiece.
  • The blade is expertly crafted from VG-1 San Mai III® stainless steel and is 3/16″ thick.
  • Each one is flawlessly ground, hand fitted, polished and then honed until it will cut at the slightest touch.
  • For strength and beauty, the double guard has been meticulously fashioned from a single piece of highly rust resistant 300 series stainless steel (instead of brass or nickel silver that can tarnish).
  • It sports an extremely buffed and polished surface that will continue to gleam despite the ravages of time and weather.
  • The handle is made from solid black linen Micarta.
  • This is extremely costly, but nothing else looks or lasts like Micarta!
  • Each one is contoured and shaped until perfect then permanently mated to the heavy blade tang with attractive colored fiber spacers.
  • The final assembly is then buffed and polished to a fine luster.
  • The R1 is delivered with a heavy duty brown leather sheath complete with Norton Fine India stone and pouch.
  • This rugged sheath is built for hard service and is designed to fit virtually any belt including a G.I. pistol Belt!
