Sal, if you don’t already have another UKPK variant in the queue, I’m going to be a very sad camper. Many of us are hoping for at least a higher-end steel choice in the new CQI G10 models that Eric has pretty much perfected. I don’t care what color it is, but a dark gray Maxamet or a new foliage green K390 would be fantastic! I’m also really hoping to see a blue G10 UKPK at some point (not blurple!!!!). Thanks, Radioactive (the other Paul)
I have one of the older G10/S30V UKPKs and I can't understand why you would think the action was "terrible". Yes, maybe it doesn't snap into the notches quite as crisply as the new ones but it's not bad either. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
The semi-recent S110V FRN model incorporates some of the CQI upgrades that were incorporated in the red G10 HH version. If you had both versions, you could just blade swap them. I would have done that with mine but the pivot screw spins freely in my S110V FRN handle.
Thanks Sal, the HH version is truly outstanding! I’d say any of the current steel/G10 color iterations would be a huge hit. I’d be over the moon with any of these:sal wrote: ↑Sat Mar 07, 2020 11:41 amHi RadioactiveSpyder,
thanx much for the post and great pictures. The UK has definitely been a work in progress for us. Back when we began the Slipit project, most thought I was nuts, but lately, the slip-joint models are emerging from other companies as well so I could say there is a trend. We're panning a 3.5" variant (CPK) for those wanting a larger version. We're also discussing other alternatives. We've also improved the design considerably as we build other variations and get feedback from the ELU using them.
The HH model was a big help and it certainly was a gamble for them, but it seems to have worked out and they've got another run in motion.
I'd be curious as to what variations in which you would be interested, and it would be better to narrow down to a few.
