    The prototype I had was 4.8 ounces and sweet as pie.

    I believe there will be a little tweaking with this version but the idea was to keep the weight the same.

    Ya the weight should be at or close to 4.8 oz i will be offering different blade styles aswell and might change the weight slightly, also i will be adding the hole in the ends of the handle so can put para cord for latch if wanted , or no hole in the end of handles if you want

    lol alright its killing me whats the difference between this and the first one? granted ive only ever handled one of yours once and it wasnt for very long during blade show this year ... but i thought maybe a blade grind style change up?

    Edit: i say blade grind change up cause that seems to be par for course when folks do a second version of a successful knife

    second edit: or is it just that this one is full ti maybe?

    Thinner lighter mostly and a couple of small changes more user friendly. Original full ti hellcat was around 6.5 oz, v2 will be around 4.8 oz there will also be more blade styles plus im sure some custom ones. Its an evolution of the hellcat.
