Seconded! I want a pink wharnie Dragonfly with an upgraded steel(LC200N? ;))

I like the handle on my Dfly, but I think the wharnie is the proper blade shape. It will really make that knife shine.

As for the steel. I can dream, can't I?

LOL!!! :D This is actually a great idea!

Was there ever any progress made with colored glow in the dark FRN? Maybe a GITD Pink could be cool! It would have a similar translucent effect as those Himalayan Salt lamps. :D

We do have a number of handle materials in-the-works for the Chaparral.

The Sun/Moon is scheduled for early summer.

Hi Lance,

It's not really a button lock. Different animal. We hope to make a button lock in the Sage in the future, but it's different. The Smock is a Compression lock with a button release. The button release was part of the Compression lock patent along with other methods of unlocking it.

...

I think this qualifies as a casual bombshell, right?

https://patentimages.storage.googleapis ... 553672.pdf

Figures 14,15,16,17. They are described in the patent as, a button release, a swivel release, a rotating release, and a sliding release, respectively. With a more detailed description of each on page 11. Pretty cool stuff. Personally, I would like to see one of the sliding alternatives.

Wow, that's cool! I see why patent lawyers exist, though - that's a dense read. I'd love to see actual 3D models of the other release options they mentioned.

Seconded! I want a pink wharnie Dragonfly with an upgraded steel(LC200N? ;))

I like the handle on my Dfly, but I think the wharnie is the proper blade shape. It will really make that knife shine.

As for the steel. I can dream, can't I?

Himalayan Salt GITD Pink FRN sounds awesome! Someone needs to do a line of exclusives with GITD Pink paired with Cruwear in the Seki Models. Delicas, Dragonflies, and Jesters.

A Wharncliffe Dragonfly with something newer than VG10 is a dream knife for me, I'd buy it in H1. I could get down with a more subdued pink, maybe Salmon colored FRN.
