Thanks for the specs.
I have updated the SJTACLE and 511 and added the New Fury - I guess it has not been officially named yet, so I just listed it as Fusion Fury for now. I assume it will be a normal release and have an official name soon (???)
Generally, I am not really listing the "MANY" variants that come out. There are just way too many variants and then sub-variants of the variants - custom handle variations could all weigh different weights and so many variations on grinds that weigh different and have different thickness/length variations, etc. etc..
As far as I know, for now, the RMD Bowies were just show special/variants (????) ... we'll see. So, for now, I am not listing those.
I WISH I had reserved a 2nd and 3rd post. Then I could add more info.... and I am sure I would list at least some variants here and there - especially if I have the specs!
I would like to have blade thickness listed... and if I had room, I would consider researching, compiling and adding much more info. I had started at one time.....
But, each post is limited to 15,000 characters and I am running out of room on my single first post.
I have had to edit and abbreviate my list quite a few times now to keep adding new releases.
If I could figure out a way to post my list as a chart or Excel type doc or similar, that would help a LOT!
I have tried, but can't figure out how.
Or if there is a way for a moderator to increase the character count for a particular post or something (???)
.... Maybe I need to send Kevin (Spark) a PM and ask.
There are many of the knives listed that I owned and personally weighed on a pretty accurate digital scale.
My scale weighs to 5/100ths of an ounce = accurate enough for me.
But, many I have had to rely on gathering info from others for many of the weights on knives I never personally owned.
I did not own a TT KZ or any other version of the KZ (although, I have handled a TT KZ and was impressed - But, it was just a bit rich for me lately...
.....and I don't remember where I got the weight info for the KZ's.
I just have to hope others are providing reasonably accurate info (???).
However, I did own both a G10 and micarta RMD (actually 2 of each at different times). My G10s were both right at 11 ounces and my micarta were both right at 10 ounces... back then.
I currently only have a heavily ground and modified micarta RMD - it still weighs right at 9.50 ounces (as of today - just checked). So, even with a significant amount of steel removal, my micarta RMD still weighs more than yours. And I am sure that I removed a good half ounce of metal from it's original shape/weight. So, I am sure my earlier release RMD(micarta) was probably accurate right at 10.0 ounces.
I don't know why your RMD weighs so much less than mine. But, I will speculate that since the RMD has been in production for so long with many "Re-Fills" of inventory, that it has probably been produced in multiple batches with some slight variations from batch to batch (????) Maybe different tooling settings or something (???). I would assume most other Busse and kin releases are all from a single batch and variants (probably ??? - at least most maybe ???) come from left-over batch blanks or similar.
