    ordered in the 12/19 drop and only received Monday the 4th. Xmas and Covid really fucked up shipping. I love the weight, grain in the titanium scales looks good and I love that mint green. I’m a bit disappointed that there are machine marks in the scale patterns and they’re really sharp. Not really acceptable on a $420 knife. BRS makes great stuff and I’m not trying to bash them but their fit and finish is a far cry from Hom and my carbon fiber basilisk was $30 less. Just sayin’. Either way I think I only like my chab AB better as far as brs knives go.

    From what I have herd those "machine marks" on the scales are an intentional callback to the texture on the G10 of a classic rep

    he is prob serious

    the v1 rep had very distinct g10 machining

    the v2 and beyond is much more smooth

    No sarcasm from me, the texturing on the hybrid rep looks very similar (if not identical) to the texturing on the g10 reps. The only rep without that texture is the CF rep as far as I know. IMO the precision of the texturing is a plus, a smoother finish would have made the knife more slippery and harder to control given that it is already a pretty heavy knife.

    i think you might misunderstand. I’ll take better picture later. The grain going the full length of the handle is great. In the cut outs there are tooling marks.

    In there. I’ll get clear pics later. It’s really not that big of a deal. Just didn’t expect it.

    maybe its the picture, that handle ‘texturing’ doesn’t look identical to a g10 rep at all

    here is a v1 and v2 rep
    the texturing is pretty clear

    on a g10 rep the texturing makes a u shape at the bottom of the handles

    on the hybrid it goes straight off the bottom

    this was an easy way to tell a clone from an authentic rep back in the day..... at least a g10 version

    so ‘indentical’ no, unless you’re loose on the definition of identical or you’re on that tight ig crew

    Bashing...stating a fact. Tomato...tomato.

    ***The second "tomato" is suppose to sound different
