Double bevel C174 ?

Postby Bladekeeper » Sat Jun 29, 2013 10:11 pm

Just seen this on a us site and I've never seen it before the double bevel c174 .
If I've read right its a bob T design ?.
Are these new or old just can't find any info on Google etc.
Ill post a link as I can't post picture no affiliation and its the only way I can show you.
Hope it doesn't breach forum rules any one have this knife and what is your opinion on it.
Any thoughts appreciated I've posted on another forum too but this is the place to ask IMO .

As far as I can tell, it hasn't been released yet.

The site has them to add to basket on other products in stock they have a pre order note.
Or explain its unrealeased yet mmm strange I first thought it was the Hungarian at first glance.

I've seen photos of it before, and it's in the 2013 Mid Year Supplement. Definitely Bob Terzuola's work. Heck, aside from the grind it's darn near a dead ringer for the Starmate. OTOH Doubt it has been released yet. AFAIK the highest SKU currently "in the wild" is C166, the Equilibrium and, while they sometimes get a bit out of sequence, eight seems a bit too far out.

Right, Paul, but since this design is over 10 years old, it has some catching up to do. ;)

I saw that they could be added to the basket, but I don't have the money to just try buying one to see how long it takes to get here. Frankly, the Starmate is the only thing I've ever seen from Bob T that I would buy.

But what about Bob's earlier work, the C19 and C15? These two models are amongst some of my all time favorite Spyderco designs, bar none. ;)

Yep. I know Bob's designs are popular, but they just don't appeal to me. I guess that leaves more for the people they do appeal to.

Bumping this up again. Is there any feedback on an indicative release date?

There doesn't seem to be too much enthusiasm about this. I think it is pretty interesting and will no doubt pick one up.

I am still kicking myself for not getting the C19PS I saw in Japan when I visited there earlier in the year. I'm still on the fence on the Starmate (generally a bit bigger and the blade thicker than I'd like as well as the perceived finish issues) but will probably end up getting one at the same time as the Double Bevel.

Just curious if there has been any more news.

Looks a bit like the Vallotton to me... but, not nearly as nice / elegant.

I'm psyched, but I only see myself buying one $150+ knife in the next four months, and it has competition, so I'm on the fence.

Can't see the correlation no disrespect to yourself :) unless you mean the abstract stand alone design , I think this could've been a wicked design had some bevels been tweaked .
The shape of the blade given more depth and some upswept curves , it does look off though and I'd consider that a 'nightmare' grind .

I have the Vallotton but can see now where the bevel starts and the hole hump + the tanto esque tip , slightly resembles it .
The T shows how it should've been but still more depth without the tanto type end and instead an upsweep would work better :) .

Totally random comment BUT I wish the SE Endura had about 1/4 of an inch FFG PE followed by the rest being hollow ground SE. Am I weird?
