    I'm not sure if I'll be picking one up. I like the build quality and tolerances on my 62, but didn't like the 62's balance as much as my 42. Hence, I didn't pick up a 67. Also, the handles need to be half an inch longer or so for comfort. The handle ends tend to rub up against the palm of my hand from time to time.

    May just pick up one down the road pending reviews of this knife... :ross:

    I won't be getting a new 6x knife. But I will be sending my 62 in for a reblade.

    THIS is the blade profile i have been patiently waiting for:manganr:
    I am fuckin' super stoked!!! Screw the 62- i want me sum 63 action!!- handle length and overall weight mean absolutely nothin to me, i just wanted the bowie profile (to match my 43).
    I am already an all-steel-bali fan so this is the perfect BM bali for me.

    While the blade profile is appealing. Quality top notch from BM, customer service great.

    I don't think I will be buying another 6X series. The handle weight is unappealing to me in a EDC role, and it's not a great flipper.

    I seldom carry my 62 even with a pocket clip mod.

    Maybe down the road to stick in my display case.

    Im Really Surprised with the positive feedback of this knife. THe blade is cool but its the same old crap as the 62. Its the coolest of the series but like I have said, BM needs to spend more time on new designs. What a way to milk the community!

    But what about the quality ?
    It performs really good when used as an EDC. But I dont think the same when it comes to flippin :bwah: Id much rather get a Microtech Tachyon II (Cheaper), or a modded 51 Bowie.

    The latch, it isnt even a spring latch, it is a T latch. I would guess it would have a spring latch for that much money, but well, going on.
    It is SANDWICH construction...
    It weights about 6.4 ounzes, which its pretty heavy. Good for EDCing, but not so good for flipping .
    It has a d2 blade, Im not complaining, but im just not a big fan of d2 blades.
    Stainless steel.

    Out of all of this. I like it for EDC, but not as much for flipping.

    Im sorry, had to pull it out of my chest.

    Back to the topic in hand. I like the bowie style BM used.:thumbsup: :ropeman:

    The 63 is cheaper than the Tachyon.

    By like $50 after all the preorders are sold.

    It's also heavier, shorter, and made of stainless steel + D2 (instead of titanium + 154CM).
