    No ETA for these knives and As these are pre productions things can change.

    Thanks and God Bless!

    So, Kershaw isn't making full sized, USA made (aside from the Leek) folding knives any more?... ;)

    I'd like to see more models that are using better steel than 8cr at least.

    So far I'm interested in the Camber and the Strobe, possibly the cryo with the g10 scale.

    Amplitude and Nura look good. Wish the Amplitude wasn't Speedsafe though. Also hope the Nura is lefty friendly.

    I don't think great knife makers like Hinderer, RJ Martin, Rexford and Dmirity would put there names on knives if they thought they were subpar quality. I've owned many Import Kershaws and have been blown away with them. I can't wait for the Nura and Manifold.

    After seeing the new models for 2014 I was a bit confused about the 'Lifter 1302BW' considering it looks strikingly if not nearly identical to a knife called the 'District 9 knife' that from as far as I could tell when it surfaced was an original design. After KAI having designs imitated and ripped from them I'm interested to know if they bought the design plans for this knife as well.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Thistle works.

    I love how Kershaw makes such a variety. Some of those knives look good (Cryo G-10 & Thistle) and others are just strange (Ember and Lifter). To each his own.

    I wonder if Kershaw will be selling just the G-10 scale for the Cryo?

    any idea if some of these assisted opening knives can be made into manuals? I like a lot of their designs (cryo, ember, amplitude)

    Seeing as they haven't done that for any other of there knives I doubt it.

    Last time I checked there were quite a few USA made Kershaw's?

    I see new variations of the leek, blur, and knockout. All USA made. The Camber is a new design, USA made.

    I'm really liking that Blackwash Blur, it's cool. The Leek is also a very nice piece, in any configuration. It's one of the very best knives ever made, there I said it....anybody wanna fight about it? I'm interested in trying the Siege as well, it's going to be a Kershaw and ZT year for sure.
     
  17. I will be buying:

    Nura 3.0
    BW Cryo
    CQC-6K
    Thistle
    Ember

    I ordered a Nura 3.0 on the KAI site--they sent an email saying it would ship in....wait for it...
     
  18. ...wait for it...





    only 4 (No, FOUR) weeks!

    I guess you didn't see the winky face... That was indicative of sarcasm. :D;)

    True, however, what I see here is a page of budget offerings, something a little bit more high end would be nice... Just my opinion though.

    The blur, leek, knockout etc are fine knives and it's nice to.see them continuing to be made. I just was left feeling underwhelmed at seeing new versions of the same old knives offered in a slightly different format as well as a lack of larger higher end folders ... Unless I've missed.some. :foot:

    Czech, the ZT side of the yard delivers plenty O' goodies.
