    Thanks!
    I never heard the rattle until you mentioned it and I shook mine. You don't need a new torsion bar, but some thin grease might deaden that rattle if you're trying to sneak up on sentries and relieve them of their post.

    Wow! Don't tell me you are already going into production with one of the other exotic powdered metals you were playing with!

    I was hoping to receive my G10 Offset soon, I was planning to post some pics comparing the three different models. I used to think I liked the black blade the most, but now that I've spent some time with the gray one I'm not so sure. I think that the G10 version has the potential to be my favorite.

    Can't wait to see where Kershaw, Ken, Tim and your other designers take the MIM process next.

    kneedeep, the G-10 Offset will have the same 440C MIM/HIP steel as the original, but we are working on the next blade geometry/pattern as well as utilizing a new blade steel.

    I do have an S90V MIM/HIP'd Offset blade that is pretty sweet (yea, I know, tough job), but we are proceeding slowly.

    haha! I had the entire thing in pieces, de-greased and militec'd within a few minutes of opening the package. It isn't that I need absolute silence while mall ninja-ing, it's that I picked this folder up because it felt so solid in the store, like a fixed. With that rattle it feels less than tank-like.

    Good to know I'm not the only rattler though, thanks. Lithium grease might do the trick.

    Thanks Thomas, I knew that the G10 Offset would still be 440C, I just couldn't resist trying to get you to talk about some more of the prototypes you must have floating around there.

    That S90V Offset must be amazing. What kind of finish does it have? Which scales?

    A dark blade and light textured titanium handles would be a great next gen offset.

    I am glad you are taking it slow though. From talking to Craig a while back, it sounds like a complicated process with incredible potential.

    3-D machined G-10 scales in black. The natural finish is quite light in color, the large S90V is black sharpie on the clip side of the blade takes a bit way from its overall look.

    LOL, black sharpie! I guess that all depends on how nice the handwriting is.
    I suppose it is an inexpensive alternative to the lasers. You should send it down to have the S90V lased on for later when it doesn't have to be so obvious what it is.

    Hadn't thought about it before, but the steel type isn't actually in the Offset molds, you add it on with the model # later on, making it nice and easy to switch steels (if there's any life left in the molds by then).

    Just curious, any chance of seeing a picture of a finished Offset blade sitting on or next to one that hasn't been hipped yet?

    Well not tonight, but sure, I believe I have some blades that would show you some of the evolution of an Offset blade. It is pretty wild to see an Offset blade in its "green" state. It has the consistency of a crayon, but eventually gets transforms into a solid Offset blade.

    Next week, remind me if I forget.

    Let's see...We are doing the Tirade, possibly a Taboo 2, hmmm....oh the Melee as well. I can't get into spec's as they are yet to be determined, but we will debut them all in June at the Blade show. I do know there will be titanium and exotic steel involved.

    That would be great Thomas, looking forward to seeing a "green" blade.

    I think it would definitely help people get a better understanding of how much goes into the Offsets.

    Ken Onion/Kershaw collaborations would be a good subject. After the way the MIM Offsets have turned out, Ken must be pretty excited about the process. I expect he's got to be working on an incredible follow up to really push the envelope of the technology.

    Sure, I'll get my sharpie to say any steel you want it to be.
