OK, all of you who have never had a first generation UKPK, *this* is what it's supposed to feel like!
The HH exclusive brings back that solid feel that the FRN versions lack, just in a slimmer package, I'm really looking forward to future G10 UKPKs now that the tooling exists.
I also have to say that the split spring has finally been dialed in to equal the old full length spring, mine is a bit notchier on the close than any of my original versions, but just as smooth opening... much different from the two early split spring UKPKs I own, which are way under-sprung IMO.
Thanks Heinnie Haynes and Spyderco!!

...I love me that nice and thin grind!
I'd much rather have a thin grind on a small knife like this too.
I didn't realize this one has a significantly thinner grind than the previous G10 UKPKs. I'll have to compare to my orange G10 one when the HH red arrives. Should be soon.
I agree, the thin blade stock isn't a downgrade, now that it's mounted in a truly rigid handle. Using this knife makes it clear that all of the flex I objected to in the FRN version was handle scale related, not at all caused by the thinner blade.

Looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks of these when they arrive.
One of the best knives ever made. Changed my blade out for a drop point, now they just need to make a drop point in something other than BD1.
Current FRN models are in BD1N, which is a significant upgrade in my experience (Para 3 LW).
