    Is there any new info to be had on these?

    Pics, thoughts, discussions?

    After catching up on the Knife or Death shows, and not even knowing Dr. Keffeler was going to be in the show, I’m hungry for anything you have for us.

    I ordered a billet of 3V, it is being rolled out now and is due to arrive here at the shop soon. We will be in production of the K18 over winter.

    I bought this weapon for one reason and one reason only. Killing robots.

    Everyone knows that to defeat a robot/computer you just challenge it to tic tac toe

    I think the trick is getting it to challenge itself to tic-tac-toe;)

    One carefully placed googly eye on a Robot's sensor can ruin its day.

    I was daydreaming about the K18 the other day. I think someone touched on this, somewhere, sometime. Does this thing have the potential to 1-hit blast through a 2x4, in capable hands of course? Has Dr. Dan done that with any of his Assassins?

    There's video of Dan 1-hitting a 2x4 with a Super Assasin. I haven't seen ANY videos of him in action with a K18, despite someone showing a pic of 3 K18s from his custom shop :(

    I remember that video now! Been a while and forgot there was a poor little 2x4 in there.

    The SA is longer and heavier I know. Pretty freaking awesome. :thumbsup:

    @Odog27
    Thanks for that vid. I saw that in looking around, but did not realize that what I was looking for was in that vid; I thought I was looking for a standalone video.

    All that said, that SA is amazing. :thumbsup::cool:

    And I believe that's the shorter SA Wakizashi in the video. There's also the longer SA Katana, which is an even more powerful chopper.

    in the right hands the K18 should be able to one hit a 2x4
