What would it take to get a Forum Knife?

Postby Doc Dan » Thu Jan 09, 2020 1:22 am

What would it take for us to get a 2020 forum knife?


As to which knife, a UKPK would be good for everyone. I wouldn’t mind a Lil Native backlock though.

By the time a new forum knife is due i guess the Li'l Native or even Native slippie will be available, and i'd frankly prefer it over the UKPK.

I want one with a tasteful marking, just a small emblem like the HH UKPK had. That is the best way in my book.

The logo could be in a square pattern like this.

I think the Chaparral would be a perfect forum knife.
Small enough to be legal in most places, still a "full size" little knife (same cutting edge length as a Native) and with its uniquely thin blade a joy to experience for any knife afi... :rolleyes:

Alternatively, maybe a nicely colored Straight Spine Stretch? Many seem to really like it...

That's one of the model that came to my mind also.

In "casual bombshells" Sal was quoted saying he was carrying a Ladybug with a clip. How about one of those in a unique color? Or the Endela?

It's the beginning of a new decade. Let's have a Damasteel Chaparral with polished black Micarta!

That sounds good to me! I'd even like a special Dragonfly.

Opposite direction. I would rather have a special version of the chief.

If it could be a K390 Chaparral, with canvas micarta scales, a lot of people would be very happy.

The forum knife logo could have a vision reference of some sorts. Here is one idea I quickly threw together using Photoshop.

I like the logo idea, the knife - not so much :) Never been a fan of CBBL or the pine cone ergo Manix.
As said above the Chap or a Chief, preferably with Micarta or wood scales and your logo would hit the spot for me!

Probably veeeeery pricey... But I like the idea of a small size model with Damasteel... :rolleyes: Dragonfly sounds even better!
