If this is a Jade/M4 Lum Tanto that will be quite interesting. A Japanese Spydie with M4. I can only hope!

I hope it’s stainless, but will be grateful for anything.

Nice, that's exciting! That definitely makes more sense than M4, as nice as M4 would have been! :spyder:

Guys need help here. Is the Lum Tanto folder using teflon washers or bronze? Or no washers at all?

Thanks. If it's teflon I may try to get some bronze to replace them.

I believe the Grey G10 sprint version from a few years ago had teflon washers. Maybe someone who owns one can confirm.
Would be nice to see phosphor bronze and milled liners.

I'm sure if Seki is using phosphor bronze washers on their other models, they will update the LT as well for economies of scale and efficiency

I believe the current Opus runs on teflon.

Now, what i want to know is if the Lum Tanto is going to be released in different spec than the BHQ one, different scales and/or steel.
The way i see it it would be a waste to just wet our appetite with a distributor special some of us (like me) aren't crazy about the scale choice.
But what do i know.. :)

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of the Jade on this one (or in general for that matter) but I'm still excited to get my hands on it! :spyder:
