It arrived yesterday afternoon. It is is serial #25 etched on blade

Specs
2 3/4 German D2 steet RC 60 to 62, Tungsten carbide coated.
machined alumium handle, carbon fiber inlay. No liners or back strap.
Button lock
Ti pocket clip

Fit & finish is very good It is a very light for obvious reasons.

Blade
The grinds are symetrical & sharp. It's a little broader & the edge is a touch lower than the front of handle, which I think will be a benefit with slicing tasks.
I haven't used a coated blade for extended period, so I'm interested in seeing how holds up doing daily jobs. Cardboard can leave vertical marks on blades & I cut up few.

Handle
The machining adds a bit of grip to the handle.
If it didn't have the choil & edge started at handle. Then I think handle would be a fraction short, as it is allows the index finger to move forward for a comfortable grip.
The clip is good, sits a bit wider at the top so easier to open, comaped to those that sit flush & are nail breakers to open to get over your pocket

This is a light in weight knife but extremely sturdy due to materials used.
D2 is a great steel in my opinion Takes a great edge & holds edge well.
It should work well in daily chores, cutting fruit, cutting bags open, cadrboard, trimming a bit of leather or even slicing peperoni sausage. That's the sort of thing my edc has to put up with.
It's a discret carry, which is important to a lot of knife users.. Here's the pics.

I'm jealous. I love the WH designs, even the ugly ones. Wait, is there a such thing as an ugly WH? Nah, just some I don't like quite as much as some others.

Murph, well said.

No point being jealous I bet you have a few:D

I wish. I had the opportunity to buy WH at wholesale prices a few years back but didn't. I've been kicking myself in the hind quarters ever since. Wish I still had that opportunity.

I did make a new acquaintance last week who is a BM dealer. The funny thing is that he's a Case fan who really dislikes BM. He was looking for some things that I had info on and next thing you knew we had struck up a conversation and I helped him get ahold of the items he was looking for. I now have an inside on deals on BM. I'll be adding to my BM collection very soon. I'm even thinking of investing in a couple of Gold Class pieces.

Yeah I had 1 of the earlier linerlocks then their prices sky rocketed, good to see them make something affordable.

Murph, that was very fortunate, so we will see some new BM's posted soon:D

Gonna go see the guy tomorrow hopefully. Planning to order two or three new one for now. I'm thinking I need the "Onslaught, MPR, and Subrosa" and I'm thinking maybe the new Lum design too. I'm going to have to see what kind of deal he can get me before I make a deffinite decision. I'd really like to have one of the new Gold Class "Shoki" models too.

I went & had a look. I like the shape of the onslaught but at 4 1/4 blade too big. The shoki is nice but you'ld want a good deal on it.
