    Yes, another review... BUT! this one is the finalizedish version with the longer handles.:thumbsup:

    I also forget to mention weight. Weighs 5.32oz. Does not feel heavy at all. It moves it's weight around real easy.

    Although the handles are longer, it kinda feels like it's not as long as an AB etc, because the handles are quite a bit thicker. But it is.

    Sorry about the jibba jabba in the vid. I should have written down some points to cover off first, but just winged it :bwah:

    What I didn't mention was the blade grind. It's insane! In all the pics and vids it kind of looks like a flat blade... but it isn't. It's just about impossible to capture the hollow grind (think that's what it's called) on camera. You really have to see it in person.

    Everyone who is on the list should be getting excited because it's something special.:thumbsup:

    Anywho... the video.

    I agree, get hyped. :devilzeek I really am enjoying the one that made its way to me. I think I will go for the tanto when my spot comes up on the list.
    Nice review.:thumbsup:
    I had a bit of trouble finding the sweet spot for chaplins, but once I got it down that thing flows around your hand.

    Thank you, you did a very good job. The blade is ground on a 14" wheel it is more of a subtle hollow grind. The grind is done freehand like I grind all my blades

    Both of those are the Proto types, I reviews both, SJ and TZ also reviewed the flipper Proto. Those are "one of a kinds"!! The drilled version has a one of a kind solid Ti latch (no roll pin) that none of the rest have also.
