It was decided that the K390 Endura family series will NOT be a Sprint, but regular "In-the-line" models.

Huge news. Will probably solidify the K390 stretch as my go to hunting knife for the foreseeable future

K390 Heritage ETA?

Any idea when the newest K390 Sprint series would be available? Trying to plan for holiday requests. Personally the K390 stretch is a grail that I will likely use for hunting/field dressing for the rest of my life. Delica and others will be tempting as well. Thanks in advance

Gin-1 Delica

I was lucky enough to recently snag a beautiful Gin-1 serrated Delica clipit. From what I can tell it has had little to no use over the years. I was hooked with a 3rd generation combo edge Delica in my younger years that unfortunately is the only knife I have ever lost. I am lucky to own a great exa...

Next Steel for Sprint Run

Any speculation on the next steel for the usually yearly Delica/endura/etc. sprint run? I am always up for a stretch. Would love to see something along the lines of k390

Re: Good Bye Stretch!

Finally got a chance to use the Vtoku2 this weekend while hunting. I am a huge fan of the original stretch and have it in all varieties. I will admit that I was initially sad to see the original stretch go as the ergonomics are excellent for me. However, for its intended purpose, the Stretch 2 bests...

Re: A11 Grade Question for Hunting Knife

Thanks for the replies. I know it will support a 30 degree primary bevel, but I really do prefer quick touch ups on the sharpmaker which would limit me to the 40 degree setting. I would prefer a 20-25 degree (10-12.5 DPS) primary bevel with a 30 degree (15 DPS) microbevel if anyone has experience wi...

Just finished my first mule team project with the Micromelt A11. The smaller one is for myself and larger one for my dad's birthday. They are made from osage orange and desert ironwood. After rough shaping on a belt grinder, i finished them with progressively finer sandpaper and 0000 steel wool with...

A11 Grade Question for Hunting Knife

Just finished up with my first Mule Team project in the micromelt A11. The smaller one is for myself, and the larger one is for my Dad's birthday. I purchased the steel mainly for the reported excellent performance for skinning big game from Phil Wilson's articles. As we both will typically use our ...

Re: A11 Mule Feedback

Hi Skinner, Welcome to our forum. sal Thanks Sal, and thanks for making quality products. If the amount of time that it took me to grind the handle is any indication, the reshaped A11 should take care of quite a few deer and hogs at a time as intended. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/rlVBuB1KjkSs...
