    **NEW PICS added, 8/28/12, Pics. 8/27/12**** Hi, I am looking into buying a HTM/DDR for EDC, since i cant wait for the Forum knife. I will mainly use it for cutting the normal paper, cardboard, etc. But it would still be great knowing I could escape from the roof of my car or chop down a tree if I needed too.

    I am looking into the DDR GH m390, HTM/DDR Greg Lightfoot 154cm, or another DDR Forum knife with s90v. Here is my short list so far: (+ means positive attribute for me, - means negative attribute for me).

    GH m390 + price, + blade metal.
    GL 154cm + price, lightweight, +/- blade steel compared to rest.
    Forum s90v - can only afford down payment, +/- I will have 2, + blade metal.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Ok I went with the HTM/DDR Greg Lightfoot Bullwhip manual in black handle and black blade with plain edge. I will soon have a BF GH S90v when they come in. So I went with the manual bullwhip.

    They just got in this shipment in stock with a good price too. I will post some pics.

    My choices for edc were the DDR GH m390, another BF DDR GH s90v, or the HTM/DDR Lightfoot bullwhip. I went with the HTM/DDR GL bullwhip because it just came into stock in manual with black blade/black handle.

    I thought the scales on the bullwhip was g10 at first but its actually 3d machined aluminum. Cool.

    Sweet! I personally plan on EDC-ing my forum knife, but then, I'd EDC the custom one I'm hoping to get sometime in the future too. It hadn't occurred to me that you'd be getting one for a safe queen. Silly me :-)

    I am a noob to BF. So right now I am on a buying frenzy until I spend all of my retirement. The BF DDR GH s90v is so special to me it will be very difficult for me to use it for edc but I still will be admiring it daily for years to come.

    I wanted another BF DDR GH s90v but I decided to go and try something different while I wait for this knife to be made. I searced for more info on the HTM Bullwhip in BF but couldnt find much. So I think I will be among the first few to buy this knife recently. I will try to post a short little review and pics when i get it next week.

    Thanks for the questions.

    I have seen this knife in 3 places today. One has the manual satin plain edge blade with black handle and two others have the manual black plain edge blade and black handle. The place I got mine is still the cheapest. PM if you want to know where.

    Hi, I finally recieved my knife in the mail. Ordered friday and came monday. I know this has been out for awhile but it was out of stock in most places until recently and I havent seen anyone with pics or reviews. Sorry I dont know how to get the flash right.

    I just got it so I havent had time for the review yet. It definitely feels solid thought when I hold it. Smooth opening and closing and has that nice sound when opening.

    Thanks for looking.

    Ok. I understand now.

    I have the Forum DDR GunHammer s90v already ordered, I think autos are illegal where I live, I wanted a manual, and I wanted to try out this blade style.
    If I really like the Forum DDR GH, when i recieve it, I will probably buy more DDR knives and try to go for the crew badge if still available.

    I was too impatient to wait the Forum knife to be made so I tried out a different style of HTM/DDR/GL.

    Thanks for your comments.
