    I just preordered one too. Hate microtech, but not their knives. And that is an excellent price. Could not resist. That yojimbo 2 will have to wait.

    i dont wanna seem like a pessimist but what if the tachyon has QC issues? It would be nice if bladeHQ had a video of a prototype. ive personally never had the pleasure of owning a microtech knife so can someone who has owned the original tachyon shed some light on this? is it unlikely that there will be first production run issues? if everything is good to go ill hold off on the BM51 i am looking for at the moment and jump on this instead.

    This isn't a new knife for Microtech, just an improved version. We'll get up a video as soon as we have an advanced prototype in our hands. Our return policy will apply to this knife, so if you aren't happy with it after you get it, we'll gladly take it back.

    Sort of unrelated and possibly discussed somewhere else, but I love how you guys changed up the "Browse by category" bar on the left side of the page.

    Wasnt a big deal, but I never liked having to scroll so much.

    Just letting you know that the change didnt go unnoticed and that it is appreciated.

    I really appreciate the feedback! All our software is done in house, so we are always trying to tweak so it is more user friendly. Everyone browses the site differently (some by Brand, Category, Type of Knife, Price etc) so we try to find a happy medium.

    actually, i couldnt wait for a response from you guys so i ordered it 5 minutes after i posted my initial question :bwah:

    with that being said my next question is that if these knives are serialized like the original Tachyon, will they be sold according to the preorder list? (ie. first person on the preorder list will get #2, and 2nd person get #3. etc.) I ordered as quickly as i can hoping to get a lower number.

    Yes, they will be numbered. We will try to send out the early numbers according to order placed, the only issue I see is the serial numbers will be divided up into 4 blade styles.
