Got lucky on a Friday sale and my DEK1 arrived last week. Really digging the design! Execution is excellent as always Very practical and pleasing design!!!!
I believe it is OD green, unbuffed, gets darker with use and has plenty of grip. Nice picture by the way Ray.Thanks. Yeah, it is a sexy knife. As for the color - I think yes, green/black (I think). Very pale green with a skin condition. I'm not really up on all the color variants but I think that is what this one is called.
I am not a trusting person and when I saw the specs I thought the DEK1 was way too close in dimension to the FK2 (which I own). I didn't believe everyone when they said the DEK1 has to be held to be admired or that its has a life all its own, no matter the specs...
I need to trust more!
This is knife TRULY has to be held to be believed. I thought it would be too small for my hands, but oh no, I was wrong again. It feels remarkable. It feels like it belongs in the hand. Another knife hit WAY out of the park! Believe what you read about the DEK1! It is amazing and my new favorite.
(BTW... I got a AEBL with black and red linen micarta unbuffed... love the grip of the unbuffed!)
You are going to love it!
It is an amazing knife. I have owned 6 or 7 different models and the Dek is my favourite.
Red black unbuffed look amazing NYCDan.
Then first I have seen of it
There is typically more than one wood used... and you get what you get... I think.Hello ladies and gentlemen! This is my first pre-order. How does it work about finding out what the Mystery wood is? Does Nathan or Jo say what it is when they start mailing them out, or do we wait until people start receiving their knives to find out what the Mystery wood is?
