    Love the look of this FK2 ... I have it in my very short list to buy ... hoping it will be a preorder ... or some decent quanity sales ... I like the changes made from the original FK ... it would fit my uses perfectly.

    Love the look of this knife.
    Correct me if I’m wrong here:
    So far, the differences to the 1st gen (which I do not own, unfortunately):
    - Handle modified and appears to be modeled after the one on the HDFK
    - Shorter by .25” (no glass/skull breaker at the pommel)
    - slightly taller blade?
    - tip raised and belly slightly pushed out
    - initial edge 20 DPS vs 18 DPS on the original
    - 60 HRC vs 61/62 on the original

    (The last two points presumably correspond to the change in HT to the newer D3V.)

    I’m not gonna lie and tell you that it took a good 10 seconds for the proverbial coin drop on this one, but in my defense i read it before my morning coffee!
