    I never dreamed I would get so many e-mails on the status of the 0750 prototype I purchased several weeks ago, but here is some resolution for you guys. After much discussion with Thomas, this proto has been confirmed as real and is now headed back to KAI. While it was probably the rarest knife I will ever own, I am very happy to get it back to where it belongs and can't wait to open the box containing whatever Thomas is sending me in trade! :D

    So was it stolen or not meant for public. I've seen a couple prototypes on the market

    I bet whoever sold it will be tracked down and talked to about it. Hopefully it was worth it.

    I think Thomas should give another 0750 as well as one of the new three (0600, 0888, or 0560S110VCF).

    Seeing how generous Thomas is on this forum, I doubt that you will just get what you asked for lol.

    I'm interested to see what comes out of your trade with Thomas. You might get something really fun.

    Based on my experience, you might get a couple fun things (or even more). What a great example of honesty and integrity solidorange! You rock!
