    Black g10 and a fresh USA Made Blade bronze anodizing job.
    Really hope I like the knife, never handled one...

    Hello guys, i have a question, is it easy to change the scale on XM if you don't have the Rick Hinderer tool ?

    Very easy. I use a dime on the screw side and just press my thumb against the back side.
    The standoffs use a 2.0 hex bit.

    Congrats! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

    Today I decided to bust out the fatty and give it some exercise. Haven't carried it in maybe 2 months...

    Ohh man, is that a 24?

    I really want an XM-24, but their availability in M390 seems very limited. Especially if I want one without a choil.

    I've also never seen one with a slicer grind which I may prefer depending on just how thick the spanto and spearpoint are. I am sure the reports of "too thick to cut anything" are kind of overblown but I would like something that cut well along with being robust.

    It's a 3.5". Probably has close to the same amount of cutting edge without the choil as a 24, though.
    Google DLT M390, one of the first links should be the page with the choilless ones.

    They've got 18s, but no 24s. I really prefer a 4" blade.

    My initial thoughts on the MP-1 are mixed.
    Love the size and weight, LOVE the sheepsfoot.
    Definitely needs some break in. Not super smooth yet without it being uncentered when closed.
    I definitely don't like the choil. Did I ever mention that I don't like choils? ;)
    Overall I think I like it, but it didn't kick an XM out of my pocket today...

    The m390 in the 4" was pretty limited from what I recall. We had a few standard wharncliffe blades and that was it for us.

    As nice as it would be to do a custom run of Xm-24s, the reality is the 18s sell 50 to 1 for us. You'd really have a good cutting edge though without a choil on a 24.

    Very much like the feel, the blade shape, the overall knife. I cannot get past the "styling" of the scale on the all-titanium version. If it was full textured like an XM scale, I would love it. Or if it was completely smooth, given the shape of the grip, that would be fine too. But I really dislike the aesthetic of the weird shaped patch of texture.
