Not sure if this fits into the "niche" category or just a dream knife for me....

I would love to see the lil Matriarch done in a more wear resistant steel. I wish they would include a plain edge lil Matriarch in the Hap40 run. I know they won't...that's why I'm putting it in this thread. :o

Sounds great. Also need to add the new Stretch 2 and R... but those would require new FRN molds and the lil Matriarch would not-- so they could go ahead with it right away! :p

Would it? There's no rule stating Hap40 can only be used in an FRN knife. How about a burnt orange G10 R with Hap40?

Sounds great to me! Though I don't have a clue what burnt orange even looks like at this point, let alone in G10 :p

Yes it's very hard to tell in catalog pics. The first thing I'm going to do when the HAP40 delica comes in is take a pic next to the current orange model.

I'm gonna grab the first one (probably the Endura?) regardless. If I like the color, I may get the next as well. But for those of us with reservations about orange knives, your pic will be a great service :)

there's talk of a titanium scaled police 3, and if it's in a steel like ZDP or the like then that's perfect for me!

A five inch fixed blade, similar to the old Camillus survival knife, but with a flat hand guard that goes over the back of the hand. The hand guard could be rotated 180 degrees for left or right handed use, or the blade could be bilaterally symmetrical and sharpened on both sides so the user could just switch hands.

A double-edged stiletto styled bladed Zowada, slightly retooled hide the complete blade in the grip.- one edge serrated, the other plain
Steel bolstered contoured G10 grip, similar to the Valloton/Hungarian....Blade steel? VG10 would be fine.

2 Versions- a 'small' Delica size and a 'large' Endura-to-Military size.

Variants of the above in a Kriss waved blade style too....

Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

Whatever it is, it would need an obscenely large chunk of bizarre material which normally would be entirely unsuitable as a handle unless vacuum soaked in epoxy resin, marketed as a "natural" material, and also priced at $1000 or more...

The original Gayle Bradley folder, the overweight one with choil ;) , with a compression lock, nested (ti-?) liners preferably in an FRN handle with the blade still in that great M4 but either with a saber grind slightly higher than the current hollow grind or with flat grind on slightly thicker blade stock.

Unfortunately something that would definitely never happen but we have to dream.. :)
