I'm hoping for a K390 Police 4 LW, Endela, Straight Spine Stretch, Jester, Delica Wharnie, and Dragonfly Wharnie in the next reveal.
Hi Steelcity,

No plans for a Jester.

sal
Sal, can you comment on the Stretch? I'd love one either way, but a Straight Spine Stretch would be lovely.

Same question for Wharnies and Endela? ( I think I remember a similar situation where Sal said it was up to us -- just wondering if we need to start full scale campaigning or not :D )

I carried my Endela SE today. Makes me want to wait for the K390 Endela. It is such a well proportioned knife.

Of the K390 Seki models, I am most interested in a drop point stretch. I may also have to go for an Endura and finally try that model.

Yes the Wharncliffe Delica was confirmed previously. I’ve been trying to confirm whether the Dragonfly Wharncliffe will also be part of the lineup though.

The Dragonfly, Stretch 2, and Delica Wharny are all top of my list.

Also the Dragonfly Wharny if it gets the K390 treatment.

Wartstein has me looking at a Endela as well, but ideally it’d be great to see a SE version - if K390 works ok in SE.

Regarding the Police LW, was there a ZDP189 version on the cards before the K390 one?

It’s a bit of a long shot, but I’d also probably go for a G10 Dragonfly if that makes it into the lineup.

Although I'm a devout Endura fan my preferred choice in the upcoming K390 FRN models would be a Straight Spine Stretch.

I've decided I'm not getting any Seki models in k390 that I have in other non-stainless steels, so no delicas or dflies. I'm trimming my hoard of those models and branching out! I would definitely like an endela and a straight spine stretch in k390 if they happen. And Wartstein has me considering an endura. ;)
My Tiny wife loves the Endura and Dragonfly. Not the others, though. Give it a shot.

I couldn't decide which Seki City I'd get in K390 but with the SS Stretch, I've made up my mind. Easily my favorite pattern of all the Seki City models, though I still like the rest.

Looks like the k390 endura is no longer available for preorder at bhq. Does that mean they sold all of what was ordered?
Edit-I see sold out.

They probably pre-sell a certain number based on what they ordered or what they usually get. But these k390 models are regular production, not sprints, so they'll get more after their first batch sells out.

Another vote for Straight Spine Stretch.
But also I would be glad to see the new Rock Jumper with K390 blade and blue-colored handle. It would be а good craftsman knife since there isn't wharncliffe Native 5.
