    ok so this is the finalized design after the prototypes and this is where i will continue to update with new ones i do. BTW ... the one pictures is a little beat up cause its my personal one and ive been flipping it for the past 2 weeks regularly lol

    IMG_5346.JPG IMG_5365.JPG IMG_5367.JPG

    Final Specs:
    D2 blade steel
    Bushing system pivots
    Titanium Handles
    Carbon fiber spacers
    Blade length overall: 5" (tang to tip)
    Cutting edge: 4.125"
    handle length: 5.3125"
    closed length: 5.5625"
    open length: 9.625"
    Weight: 4.6oz

    From the prototypes there was two styles of grinds the final product will have the lum style grind on the Alien tanto profile. There will be 13 done in this blade profile for this first run and then another 13 will be done in a secondary bade profile. ive had alot of folks ask me if that means im retiring this blade style after this run. NO this is not the case im simply doing a second blade profile for a bit after these.

    It looks much better with the cut tang areas. I'm not normally a fan of D2 but your blade shape helps mitigate any chipped tip concerns I would normally have. I'll definitely be trying to get one when you do your drop. I definitely want one. Your flipping video you posted was great as well.

    the base models will be 650 the damascus bladed ones will be 850 and thanks lol im glad you like her ^_^

    D2 is actually a really strong Stainless steel, i think the biggest issue people have with it comes from production companies mass producing knives with D2 and because mass production means going with the lowest bidder, its caused people to get a bad taste for that cheap shit quality. in the end my choice of D2 was edge retention it was much later i found out it was technically a Stainless steel

    Looks like a mean cutter, hope no one forgets to pass after catching that bite handle or you'll be in for a fun trip to the hospital.
