    I am pleased to announce the Specter Evo!

    This was originally planned to be a different knife, but for reasons listed below, the original design was kept with a number of changes:

    Blade steel - Elmax

    Blade finish - two tone satin with acid stonewashed

    Titanium Handles - satin/machined finish, anodized

    Anodized handle colors:
    Electric purple
    deep blue
    electric teal (slightly different finish)
    gold/purple two-tone

    Pocket clip - engraved, compatible with Prodigy and Specter, removable

    Reprofiled titanium spacers

    I decided to keep the Specter design so I can offer the following to owners of the original Specter!

    Have the two-tone Specter and just want the pocket clip? Engraved pocket clips will be available with the original hardware. The Prodigy will be a challenge to apply the clip but it can work.

    +Swing kits-- Stainless spacer kits will be available for both the Specter Evo and Specter! Was not going to originally offer these but decided why the hell not. Install at your own risk and please be careful with the hardware! Extra hardware will be included.

    Some WIP pictures:

    Acid and stone washed with satin flats:

    These were the original anodizing colors. Thought they were a little too subdued-- I really wanted the Evo to jump out at you so I took the Arashi handles out of the anodizing bath and said I wanted the Evo handles to look just like the purple and blue.

    These were the new purple and blue:

    A regular green is always loved, but the teal really pops!

    All it is missing is the pocket clip!

    The purple and gold two-tone should really be awesome in person. It was my favorite color on the Prodigy SE but will look even better on the Evo with a better finish and slightly adjusted voltages.

    All parts are machined, and these are in assembly now!

    Current ETA: November 30th, 2015
    Price: $479.99 at Blade HQ
    50 per color available

    Even better, I have a huge announcement for Project-R next Friday before the NYCKS show. This will be something a little familiar but still an all new design, with some new materials. The prototype is completed and will be available at the show as well.
