Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Guys, Jeff over at cutlerylover advised that I post a funding campaign for the second generation EKT Companion on Indiegogo. It is up and running. The new generation will be compatible with the first gen handles, but be USA made, flat ground instead of saber ground, and will be in CPM20CV instead of CPM S35VN. They are going to be great! Check it out: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/evans-knife-and-tool-companion-usa-made/x/13473486#/ ------------------------- I wanted to address this comment specifically. Ronnie isn't being arrogant. His sheath work is really that solid. His sheath is an amazing addition to the knife package and I'm super excited to offer it with this knife. These aren't cheaply made, mass produced sheaths. This is QUALITY kydex bending at it's best. I will only put the best around my knives, and I consider Ronnie's work to be just that. ------------------------ UPDATES ***EDIT 4/23 1930*** ***A COMPANION GEN 2 CAMPAIGN UPDATE*** I am proud to announce that late yesterday evening the campaign met it's funding goal of $19,000!!!
