First up is this information taken from a letter sent to a fellow collector from Mike Stewart. This information which has recently been passed along to me sheds some new light on several models including this one. There were approx. I want to add here that this same knife is still being produced in Japan today by the original supplier of this knife.
The knife is being sold in the US by Seki-Cut. I take issue with this last number concerning the stag variation. I know based on my contact with others who worked at BlackJack as well as the Cutlery Shoppe which had an exclusive on the Micarta and stag models that of these were in fact made.
I also want to add that the only version currently being made is the standard Rosewood handled variation. Here is a bit of general background info about these knives based on factory literature. The knife was based on one that was made by Bill Moran in for well known writer Ken Warner.
The knife was used for some 20 years when it came into the hands of the folks at BlackJack who were very impressed with the knife upon testing it. They were impressed by the knives ability to equal and in some cases beat the BlackJack Mamba in extensive testing. So they decided to put a duplicate of the knife into production. There is a special batch of these done early that were serial numbered for Catoctin Cutlery which went out of business in about I have one of these in rather rough condition.
The knife is in a nice walnut case. The lid has a retaining strap for the sheath and the blade of the knife was an image of both Bill Moran and Ken Warner etched on the blade. The blade says Limited Edition then below that Warner-Moran the below that Rio Grande then below that 1 of and finally below the number of the knife which in my examples case is I have only seen a few of these so I have my doubts about ever being made like this.
The point of this article is not to chastise these players but to comment on the mistakes so that you can learn from them. First off, let me address the "luck issue. However, I disagree with folks who say that there is no skill involved in playing tournaments. The players who understand basic tournament playing strategy are far more likely over time to do better than a player who depends solely on luck to bring him to the winners circle. Enough said on this subject. Let me set the stage for this tournament.
Thirty hands were dealt in each round. Here's the scenario. This means the leader's bankroll was greater than 2. The leader bet last and everyone who bet ahead of her went all in.
Do you see the mistake she made? Whenever your bankroll is greater than 2. Now, as long as the leader has the same outcome as the chaser, the leader can't lose. However, this is what happened. The chaser was a dealt a 15 against a dealer 7 and he stood. The leader had a 12 and he followed basic strategy and hit his hand.
The leader should have stayed on his 12 remember you want the same result as the chaser, meaning if he stands with a stiff, you stand on your stiff. This is a case where you should not play your hand based on what the dealer shows, but rather you play your hand based on what your opponent has. What is so special about a half-max-bet lead in tournaments? On two different tables, I estimated that the table leaders had the opportunity to get that all-important half-max-bet lead, but they didn't bet enough to try to get that lead on their opponents.
In this tournament, the vast majority of players went all in on the last hand. In most cases, that's usually the best bet to make. But not always. Usually, if all players to your right who bet ahead of you go for the high meaning that they bet big hoping to win their hands then you should take the low.
