I know, I know, sorry bout that.
It's going to be ok though, cause we are making them extra special just for you offsetlover.
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.
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.
I'm up late drinking some wine, what should we talk about?
Let's talk about how bad I got beat tonight at hold em. Glad I didn't have my Spec Bump on me...
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?
Next week, remind me if I forget.

kneedeep. my name is offsetlover. im the only one who is aloud to to drool super excessivly over the offset
thomas w. what on earth do you think will stop us from reminding you to post pics? s90v huh? GIMMIE!!! i will buy the new one coming out, but i will then start saving for this new little gem. (little being the operative word lol). so will my offset have the new steel? you said that they were being made extra special for me
hope i get a new kershaw tomorow at the knife show
P.S. Didn't know you like wine Thomas. So sophisticated! Does it say MD 20/20 on the side?
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.
