    It is official, it's a go and all the details are just about worked out for this next knife. It may be a bit before actual parts start popping up but here are some basic bits of info. It won't just be a "live" blade version of the trainer!

    Everyone knows I am not a fan of "me-too" designs without going too far away from the straight-handles and single edge that everyone loves. The aesthetics of the knife will be a little different than the two slot handle formula that the Basilisk, Tempest, and trainer have and will definitely look like it means business while being able to do some cutting chores as well-- think clip point profile with S35VN with multi-finished handles.

    Everyones been griping about my balis being hard to get. This is already expected to change with the trainer and will be even better with the production knife. Just like the trainer, there will be plenty for everyone but it's still capped at the production run.

    Price will be around or possibly less than the Ti Basilisk at 2010 prices. This also means that this will be a premium knife with quality levels that matches some midtechs and it will look, feel, cut, and flip as well as the best of them. Warranty included.

    ETA Fall 2014.

    Thread will be updated as it progresses.
