Just finished the black sheath. The width of the blade made for some tricky adjusting around the choil,blade is wide enough that it wanted to pinch in that area when inserting. Finally got it sliding in nicely.
Great knife, feels wonderful and well balanced. I like it a lot.
What a blade. I love the smooth handles.
Shipping notice, my black/black micarta non-nuke will be here thursday! Really excited to compare it to my all-time favorite, the 2nd gen Steel Heart Ergo in the same configuration. It'll be hard to beat how much I love that knife; it's been through a lot with me, but I'll give the new girl a chance
Mine is flying now...
Wow....just got these puppies in hand...all can say is this is a great blade, and my size 9/Medium hands love these NF handles. I am in the habit of hand smoothing "mags" for my users, and the non-mag fusion handle works well for me as well. The Mag Fusion feels a little big although not uncomfortable, and if hand-smoothed I love that handle too. Or if the mags are on thinner stock aka .25" like the CGFBM...
That said, I love these NF handles just the way they are...
Here are some pics - I was pleasantly surprised because I forgot exactly which combos I ordered and the bronze and maroon was an experiment. It turned out great!
Here are some bad pics with flash due to lighting in the house...
These are really nice knives in both configurations. The non-nuke is light in hand and for sure a venerable chopper in its size and weight class...the nukes feel very all purpose and are, of course lighter. Not that they are not substantial blades in their own right...
The inside light is making your bronze coating look like black coat. Could you get one from outside and brighter lights?
Does anyone know if these will fit in a large Spec Ops Brand sheath ?
Fits decent in a NMSFNO sheath
The Nano forsaken steel heart will not fit a stock spec ops sheath.
You can re-mold the liner with hot water or a heat gun. I would not attempt to use the new style spec ops sheath though. The newer spec ops has Velcro attached to the liner , can be a irritating, & the shape of the liner itself does not re mold very well.
The old stock spec ops with the screw can be molded with a little effort and some patience. I’ve had decent luck fitting the old stock spec ops sheath’s to blades that would not originally fit.
Plenty of old threads here on BF about molding a spec ops liner.
The ad on amazon says the large sheaths will fit 8” blades
I know that. It’s the width from edge to spine I’m worried about. But the poster above says it won’t work without some modification.
Just got my nuked comp finish with black textured G10 nano handles. I have to say this may be my favorite knife to date. The weight feel and balance are all spot on.
Pics please. If you have time.
Sorry I am not sure how to post pics. It is identical to the one Chris A posted (#481).
I think that's the hottest one of them all! That sanded handle looks awesome!
I just got mine in today and they are sweet. I wish they had the regular fusion handle though. These are a little petite for my mitts . This version of the handle will definitely carry much easier though.
The Pizza didn’t stand a chance.
Not sure how I feel about the Nano handle, it’s slim. The blade is fairly large for the handle size, it works though. I’m certain I would really regret selling this one.. might have to beat on it a little and make sure.
Just unwrapped mine...nuke and CF maroon. I personally like the handle a lot! Just need to decide which to keep (I'll most likely keep the Nuke).
To answer a couple questions I saw that I'm not sure if were answered or not.
The Nuke is 17.7oz, the Non Nuke is 16.9oz. For those that are mathematically challenged, the Nuke is only 0.8oz lighter. I was expecting a bit more of a difference (I don't know why). To put in perspective, that's the weight of 4 quarters.
No, they are the same.
