We have so much on the plate right now. I feel in the future it will happen.
There is a knife out from us called the AMERICAN PATRIOT.
It is from my personal mid tech line DRT.
They are selling them at Knifebuy.com.
This might hold you over for a while?
They come with washers , but can be converted to bearing if you want.
Lets get some more info!
There is a hole in my heart where a flipper, AO-opening framelocked ETAC Persian should be. I'll never give up the search!
Can't wait to see what Dirk is cooking up. But I wanna see what Darrel's interpretation would look like too.
I think I'll draw up my own Darrel Ralph style interpretation of a Persian blade and post it here. I've got Photoshop and some extra time in the evenings after my martial arts class. I really like the khukri design that showed up here awhile back.
I'll report back soon with the design!
How long until the manual orders are delivered Mr. Ralph?
I would like to see more manuals, I love Darrels designs but almost every time I see one its assisted and Im not a fan of assisted knives
Yea, send it in and Darrel will remove the assist mechanism and send it back to you along with the knife. Alternatively, as neuron mentioned, you could wait and find a dealer that has a manual version for sale. It probably would not void warranty to remove the mechanism yourself, but removing the pivot is somewhat difficult without the proper pivot tool.
After looking at those Madd Maxx pictures, I had a thought--DDR folding gladius. Get a leaf blade or wasp-waisted blade, mebbe 6-8" long, and perhaps slightly more curvy flippers to give the look of a gladius...
