My P4 K390 is off getting DLC right now. Doing the blade, liners, and all hardware. Very excited to get this back.
Oh, that's cool! Can you post pics when you get it back?
Definitely! Will do. I'm pretty excited about it being all murdered out like that is going look awesome I think? If nothing else it will definitely be corrosion resistant and more of a full time packing knife for sure.
Can you PM me contact info and pricing? I'd love to get mine done if they do a good job with yours.
I'd be interested in seeing this as well.

Great news! Thanks, Mr. Glesser, for the update. Will this include the Stretch 2?

Am I right, that the FRN for M390 is planned to be a (darker) blue?!
If so: My must-have, as soon as available, an Endela PE with blue scales, will not be in VG10... ;)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Well, I’ll be... Looks like my Endura family is going to grow. K390 is one of my faves.

I’m curious what had to happen in Seki City for European steel to be allowed into Japanese-made knives.

I love K390. I'm not sure I need it in something I already have in Maxamet, but I'd love to see a small fixed blade (Sprig? Enuff?) in K390.
I agree with doing the sprig in k390! :D

Endura would be great too, Yay!

Does that include the wharncliffe blades (and wharncliffe dragonfly)? If so, count me in for at least one of each.
Everyone is crazy in their own special ways. Good thing too! The world wouldn’t be nearly as interesting otherwise. ;)

Top 5 knives I’ve owned: Caribbean Leaf, Shaman, Manix XL, ZDP-189/CF Caly 3.5, Native LW.
Top 5 steels I’ve owned: LC200N, MAXAMET, CPM S90V, ZDP-189, CPM M4.
Top 5 steels I want: CPM 20CV, K390, CPM 4V, VANAX, REX 45.

The EU and Japan recently signed a trade pact i believe

You’re correct. Took effect in February and would explain European steel where once verboten. Thanks for the reminder.

TiCN coated K390 Jester, Dfly, Delica, Police LW, Wharnie Delica, Wharnie Dfly, and Wharnie Endura.

Please include the Jester. The time has come for a new one. TiCN K390 would be perfect.

Thanks Sal. Looking forward to see what you choose in the end.

Definitely the dragonfly, delica and endura wharncliffes. The caly 3.5 would be amazing as well.

DOES anyone actually know, if the FRN color for the K 390 models is planned to be a (darker) blue? I can´t quite remember, but I think Sal mentkioned something along that lines (at least concerning n FRN Police LW in K390)?

Endela PE, blue scales, K390... oh yes.
