Thread: Airkat Tripwire!

  1. #1

    Airkat Tripwire!

    I got my Tripwire from Dwaine a couple of days ago, the knife is a beast! Here are some pics next to a SMF for comparison. My knife is all bead blasted, with subtle green/black G-10 side. I will go a little fancier next time, probably satin on the blade grinds. Fit and finish are excellent, the knife opens smoothly, locks up solidly, zero blade wobble. Check out the thickness of the frame lock, it's as thick as the blade on other knives. The blade was pretty sharp when I got it, though a few minutes on an ultra-fine ceramic got it screaming sharp. Hard to believe that a blade that thick could get that sharp. The knife carries well for its size, though I think that the pocket clip is too long. Seems to take forever to come out of my pocket.

    If I had to guestimate the price, I'd figure $475

    Close, $425 + shipping straight from Dwaine. Up until Tuesday, Julie over at Arizona Custom Knives had a couple for sale at $425, I checked last night and they are gone. Dwaine's wait time has gone up considerably, used to be 2 - 3 weeks, is now at least 2 - 3 months. Being named one of the 10 knifemakers to watch by Blade Magazine hasn't helped in this regard.

    WOW! Can anyone say King Kong?!?!? That is one more brick shthouse of a folder. What is the thickness of the blade and lockbar? Look to be .187"(3/16) or .225" (1/4). Regardless, it looks like it would be ready for the worst you could throw at it.
