I received a enduring freedom model in 2010. I don't know much after that, but I assume they are still being made.

Back locks need that little bit of tang to keep the edge off the back spacer. Liner locks use the stop pin, compression locks too. That's my best guess.

Works for me. Now they'll be available and the price will probably fall slightly with that labor intensive step omitted. I'll gladly trade my plain Ti Millie for one of those.

They look great. They just need the clip stripped and they'll be amazing.

My order at KW is sitting at 1/2 filled (2 total). We'll see if they get the second in soon, or at all.

Looks good. Can you say slicer? I love love love thin FFG regrinds. I think they're ideal for about 90% of what I do.

I don't plan to mod anything, I just thought the forum writing couldn't be removed unless you refinished the entire blade (polished?).

It looks good, but if there were a "pro" variation I would want it gen 4 profile FFG very thin behind the edge. I think that thin plus splinter tip would be too fragile.

Sorry to hear your story. I've learned that lending a knife will usually end on it being returned in worse condition than when it was lent. My go to phrase is "I'd be happy to cut that for you." Sometimes I also carry a beater knife that isn't very sharp(I don't care about it being sharp, I don't us...

I agree that I would not like to see a waved para2. It would change the knife too much; there could be a nice new knife designed with the wave. I don't like the wave but to each their own. I agree that it makes the knife more weapon like. It also takes away from its tool riles slightly with the hook...

on the other hand they just sold 2 batchs of 700-800 knives in 4 days without releasing the info. So, while it might interests some of us, it also means it's not the priority of the majority.

I'm sure there'll be some, but anyone who bought one specifically to capitalize on the short supply is kind of a jerk. I know it happens but I wish it didn't. I feel it goes against the spirit of what being a collector or enthusiast is all about.

It has the high tech appeal, but the diamond pattern G-10 looks the classiest of any G-10 I've seen.
