    Going to be a little while . I haven’t had much time to work on them due to commitments on fixed blade orders. I do have another one started , trying to finish it before the holidays. If all goes as planned I would like to have a few available early 2018.

    Thanks Kyle,
    This one is a bit smaller than the first design. 3.25" blade 7.875" oal with thinner material. The blade rides on bearings.
    Trying to get one or two more finished to finalize the design then looking to get handles and blade off to waterjet.
    Hoping to make this one available soon.
    I will also be going with 3v or stainless steel for the blade just haven't decided on a particular series yet.

    Glad to hear that @Pastor Chris
    Its been a little slow going on these . Working on them in between fixed blade orders and such, but I am really happy with this new model and looking forward to getting some finished.
    I will keep you guys posted.
    Thanks, Tim
