Like any prototype, it's being tweaked for the final version...
We're leaning toward a full flat grind to prevent conflicting the grind lines with the hole... Which will be shorter by the way.
Also we're gonna keep that detent ball path hidden in the handle...
That sorta thing.


WIP coming up next!

A seamless and impressive integration of several design elements. It appears functionally minimalist yet visually impressive. Very well done. OldDude1

Looks like a winner from here. I really like the design, but personally prefer a thumb stud to the hole design. Hey, we all have our preferances, but this appears to be a very solidly constructed and asthetically appealing design. Great job!

Very well done. Love the design and looks very comfortable in hand. Nothing like having a design turn into a real knife.

Only problem I can see with it is that it isn't mine.
Thoroughly nice piece. I love the lines of the handle and the grind of the blade
