    Here's a place where we can give a sneak peak about things to come from HTM and DDR. You name it and Darrel's had his hand in it at one point or another. This thread will also serve as a rumor mill of sorts. I will post pics when I can.

    Here's one thing you guys probably didn't know. Darrel's working on an OTF. I haven't found out if the project will be an HTM or part of the DDR line up. I have a feeling it's quite a ways out, but I heard about this project around Blade 2011.

    And below is a hot off the bench copper colored Gunny bowie with a new pivot pin.

    Awesome, I look forward to seeing pics of the OTF. I've got my copper-handled GH in my pocket right now!

    AAHHH, the OTF! It's going to be awesome! It will take some time to get it right. I know Darrel wants it to be perfect.

    The thing I really love about DDR/HTM knives is that every single knife tries to maximize blade length to handle ratio. That bali is insane. It really looks like the blade is even longer than the handles, but that's probably just an illusion. Still fantastic though.

    Beautiful!!!
    The first Darrel Ralph knife I wanted was a
    Cuda Maxx with a 7" blade I believe but couldn't
    afford it at the time.
    When I could afford one, I couldn't find one.
    Oh Well.
    I definitely will be getting a Gun Hammer soon.

    You guys hit it right on the head.
    Blade to handle is the first form and function we try to achieving DDR and HTM designs!

    I am new to DDR, HTM, and such. I do like what I am seeing. My Nephew loves Bali blades and that one looks awesome. It does not have to be a holiday for me to gift him a knife. I'll keep an eye on this one. Also, I am interested in the OTF. I have some from another maker but look forward to seeing this one.

    It's like a butterfly straight razor! That's very cool; I would love to see Sweeney Todd return wielding one of those.
