This bad boy is en route from Whitty.
Black g10 and a fresh USA Made Blade bronze anodizing job.
Really hope I like the knife, never handled one...
DLT Trading still has a few left if you're OK paying retail. I liked them so much that I bought 3 or 4 from there.
Looks like they only have battle blue and battle bronze left.
Both of those finishes are beautiful.
I had 6 at one time, but I'm down to a battle bronze, a battle black, and a DLC.
It would be hard to pick one as my favorite.
Here's a couple pics of the blue, maybe that'll encourage you to grab one from DLT...
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.
Congrats! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.
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...
