    OK. (I said in an office work area-- big difference. People who work in those areas know what I'm talking about)

    For sure it’s most legal here...

    Fascinating! So it's illegal to have a knife with too aggressive of a grip surface in some places? How would the courts even quantify that?

    Yeah even in California there are no blade length laws and I feel fortunate to be able to carry either a Spyderco Military or a lion steel slipjoint.

    Hmmm interesting how it's exactly 3" all of a sudden when it was clearly 3.123" before. I'm actually kind of disappointed because every little bit that makes it closer to a medium sized sebenza the better.

    I hope it was always that way and they haven't cut the blade down or gotten creative with what they are calling the specs.

    I agree with people here that question whether a normal, clear-thinking police officer would arrest an individual and send you through the court system for .123”. If you live in a place like that, you gotta look at electing some new municipal officials as they are wasting your tax money prosecuting trivialities.

    Where I live, in Western Canada, there is no restrictions on blade length. You can walk down the street with a two-handed sword, you are simply not allowed to threaten anyone with it.

    The reality on the ground here in Kommifornia is that no matter how often I vote that way, I always get outvoted. I am stuck with laws that are passed by people who think nothing of trampling on civil rights.

    The guy loves the design of the knife but is disappointed by the fit and finish. I like the video for showing a lot of close ups.

    I feel like the nail nick looks skewed on most pics I've seen. They should do something asymmetrical like on the Mnandi.

    Every question he poses is valid. Bottom line, the price doesn't make sense.

    Has anyone else seen this or linked it here in the CRK forum? Lots of information straight from Tim at Blade:

    I think Tim posted that during Blade, nice little video. Not sure I'd be able to find it now, after the crazy amount of traffic we had that weekend.

    Tried it today as an emergence fire tool... feather sticks are not a big problem as you can imagine, but also it works surprisingly well on ferrocerium rod. Not as good as spine on Victorinox Farmer saw (also slipjoint) but can be used for fire starting if needed. That swedge is surely sharp enough for that.
