It would be nice. It seems like we've been waiting forever for this thing. Poor Michael, must be ready to blow a fuse by now.

Thank you for the nice words, gentlemen. (I am now using a 50 amp fuse and it seems to be working much better to keep me sane. ;))

On a serious note, I know that things are still in motion... I am hoping that Sal will weigh in with an update on the Rhino.

Thanks again for the support!

Don't give up. We were informed at the Oregon Knife Show that production was moved to the Taichung factory. The Rhino will be better quality and steel now.
Time for another :spyder:!

Wow. Sorry it's taking so long that's gotta frustrate SpyderNut but at least it's going to be Taichung now

Thats probably going to cause a little bit of a price increase as well! Wonder if that will affect the demand for this knife? :rolleyes:

Either way, it's going to be an exciting release, regardless of when it drops!

Hoping to see a large number of 'seconded' Rhinos at the next seconds sale... :p

So what steel do we think it could be - S30V? I'm hoping for CTS-XHP.

Quality over velocity all day. CTS-XHP sounds good to me too. Will be worth the wait, I'm sure.

S30v, CTS XHP, CTS 204P, the various mule steels... All of the steels Taichung is capable of working with :D

Sal will not revamp a blade
lest slipping standards must be stayed;
of disgruntled clients he is unafraid,
ensuring stellar knives are made.

Any chance the street price remains under $100?
