    I didn't really have the funds for this, but had to go for it and figure it out later. Predator was a big part of my childhood.

    This is my first and only Heretic knife. I wasn't a fan of the earlier Heretic designs. The pocket clips with a big H and the goofy looking serrations held me back. The Manticore knives are very clean though.

    I have to say that this is a very nice knife. The non-Predator version is priced decently. I paid way too much for this, but it is awesome regardless. Tight lockup and good action. Doesn't fire as hard as a Troodon or Dalton, but it has plenty of power. The serial number is in Predator symbols, very cool. The bead is also very well done, made by Harding Inc.. There were copper or cobalt versions. I went with the cobalt.

    Predator was a huge part in my childhood too. It’s my favorite movie franchise ever. Great find. I love the knife. You got me thinking I should buy one.

    Do it bro! Who knows if this will be continued or not. As far as I know only 50 of the "E" series were made prior to Christmas. This larger "X" series has about 150 so far.

    Those are pretty cool. It saddens me to think we could probably ask people about the original predator and they wouldn't have a clue.

    It will probably go up in value over the years unlike a smart phone or so many other things. Predator and Alien movies are the best, never forget seeing them when they came out at the theaters, the music in Predator is best at just below pain threshold.
