You need to register, but that's easy.

I like how the original proto is improved. The lock release looks better, and the removable 'wave' is very smart (but not really 'good' looking :rolleyes: )

It's a variant of the ball bearing lock. It's not an axis lock.

Can someone capture the image and post it here? I don't feel like joining a forum from work...wouldn't be prudent.

I don't think linking to someone elses pics on another forum without consent is appropiate.

I could send them via e-mail however.

As it is from a public forum that anyone could join, I fail to see the problem asking a copy of pic...not a hotlink (which affects bandwidth), but everyone has their own code. Thank you for your offer but I must decline. Use of the company email was the reason to avoid joining that forum from work...so sending knife pics to work email really is the same issue. Guess I'll have to practice patience and do it at home. ;) :spyder:

So is this going to be regular production? Limited edition? Limited to purchase from other site? Anyone know? :confused: :spyder:

Very cool, any knowledge on how the wave is removed? Unscrew it?

Seems like if it was an elongated torx screw that would be one way to do it.

THAT is just TOO FREAKY!!!

Aloha ALL,

It's good to be back...

Anyway, I just about searched my house for Rod Serling when I saw the pics of the Pikal. (VERY nice BTW). Why? Well...

When I heard there was interest in a Pikal model awhile back, I dug up an old design and "finished" it. I then asked :spyder: R&D if they were interested in seeing my Pikal design but I was told that they already were working on one.

Now, check out the pic of my sketch. (Sorry for the bad scan...the paper is old) This is not the "nice finished" drawing, I can't find it right now, but i did find one of my old concept drawings. I thought I would share this because I just found the similarities a bit too freaky! ;) :eek: Be advised, this was only a sketch, and not the "final" version I had ready to send to Sal...

I just worked three 16+shifts in a row over the last three days with only about 2-3hrs. of sleep between each shift, so I thought I was seeing things! :D In fact, I have NO idea what I am doing here right now...I should be asleep, but I think the forced OT kinda wrecked the body clock a bit...

I am VERY happy to see that I was at least on the right track, and now I cannot wait to get one of these Pikal models!

I missed you guys!

God bless :cool:

(Looking over shoulder, "Rod? Mr. Serling? You can come out now! :rolleyes: )

Chad, I like your concept too, reminds me of the ITR.

That knife has some wonderful features I hope to see a lot more of in the future.

The ball bearing lock was just begging for some extensions like that, and the removeable wave is a super idea - one of those "why did nobody think of that before" kind of things.
