We also have more K390 sitting at the factory in Maniago. I'm trying to decide what else to make?

Perhaps a Squeak sprint run in it?

I used mine today. I wanted to try K390 before committing to the Police 4. I'm about over carbon and tool steels, just a personal preference. I left bell pepper and onion juice on the Urban's blade for several hours. I barely got any patina at all! I was surprised. I guess K390 is more patina resistant than I'd imagined.

Hey Sal, how about making a K390 Urban with a wharncliffe blade and titanium handle scales. That would be a must have for me.

I'm sure we would all love to see K390 used on every model made at the Italy factory Sal.

Are there any new models planned for production in Italy? I remember hearing about the cosmopolitan a while back.
Most recently acquired: Paramilitary 2 Tanto, YoJUMBO, Swayback, Siren, DLC Yojimbo 2, Native Chief, Shaman S90V, Para 3 LW, Ikuchi, UKPK, Smock, SUBVERT, Amalgam, Para 3 CTS-XHP, Kapara, Paramilitary 2 M390
Grail Paramilitary 2 M390 X 2! ACHIEVED!!

The Cosmopolitan is on hold for now, as is the Navigator. I'm not opposed to a warnie Urban, but nix on the Titan scales.

We have a few models planned, but the designs are not close enough to completion and I would probably not introduce a new" model with a carbon steel.

Grey FRN Squeak! If will feel left out since the Pingo and Urban got the K390 treatment. Man, all 3 of those knives are awesome in my book. FRN Slipits FTW!

Put K390 in the Pattada and I'll buy it. I love the knife, but I'm not too thrilled with N690Co.

How about a K390 Urban wharncliffe with red G10 scales. I would also like FRN handle scales just fine.

If we are talking new models, would it be inappropriate to suggest the Yo_Fly in k390?

A wharnie urban would be great! I'll bet the blokes across the pond wouldn't mind either ;)

What I wish for is a K390 Endura and Delica and maybe a Stretch. But, since the steel is in Italy, perhaps a new design? Say, a 2.8" to 3" blade, FFG with a good point, and a back lock. You know, a mini Patada. Or, a back lock Patada would be really nice, too.

What stopped me from buying the Patada is that it is a liner lock. And, while Spyderco does this lock better than anybody, I still prefer the back lock for strength and simplicity.

Same here. Not a fan of liner locks.

Congrats Josh!

The scales look almost black in the pic, assume that's mostly the lighting. I hoped they'd be a pretty dark slate gray like the Cruwear PM2. On point?

They are dark in person, not the same shade as the Cruwear Para 2

If you've just got some K390 laying around over there, I sure wouldn't mind seeing an upgraded Roadie. :)
