I was always perplexed at the relatively short tenure of the TUFF model :confused: Because it truly had a nice cult following in the early part of this decade. It's been on my watch list for a possible trade or to maybe find one at a pawn shop or just flat out get lucky some day. I was in a financial quandry when that knife was on the main line up but it caught my eye big time and I would also welcome a Sprint Run or a return to the main line up.

I’d be interested in a Sprint Run, especially with the prototype titanium tooling. My only Schempp design knife is a Bowie and it’s a great knife. I would be interested in any Ed Schempp designs after buying the Bowie just so I could get it signed at the SFO sale last year. In hand that knife is excellent and it works well as a tool. Clearly the thought that went into the design process for the knife paid off. I bet that’s true in spades for the Tuff.

It’s always curious which ones they bring back. The shabaria came back and I don’t know that there was a great outcry for it. The tuff has probably had the most call for a return. Well, maybe the slysz Bowie has had more. It could make a return, you never know.

Full titanium with that proto milling pattern on both sides, Cruwear.
If you're wielding the sharpest tool in the shed, who's going to say that you aren't...?

Sounds really good to me! But I'll take a sprint run Tuff any way I can get it (within reason).
