    Stand off's are there two styles


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hi, I have two XM-3" and just noticed the stand off's are different. The gap is wider on one knife. They seem to be the same over all size just the gap in the middle. Is one a older stand off?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    You may have yourself a Fatty there my friend. Are the blades a different thickness?

    Standoffs are made in both stainless and Ti.

    You may also have standoffs put on by a previous owner which were made for a bigger knife (thicker blade), maybe only bronze or blue.

    There are no fatty 3" models, but the style of standoffs have were tweaked a bit between the first couple of batches.

    Thanks Rob for you help. One must be older than the other.

    Since I gave bad info I deserve a slap on the wrist. I think an appropriate punishment would be having to test out a Fatty 3" prototype and writing a review.
