    Agreed. They're in the $220-$240 range and I was hoping they'd keep them right at $200!

    That's exactly what I thought; the new designs and the steel insert must of brought the price up. I might wait for a used one to pop up here or see how much the other models will be.

    The Dukes looks cool, not to keen on the others. Can't wait for the Laconico models. Ray just posted a pic of the liner locks on his Instagram.

    The Laconico look awesome and I love the blade shape. I'm crossing my fingers that they're a little bit better on price than the Duke/Trifecta/Bad Dog.

    Yeah, the only one I kinda like is the Dukes. The Bad Dog blades look a little Onionish. I think these will probably come down in price after a while; the first adopters have to pay the "new" tax. When the 4450's came out they were a little higher priced too but now they sell at an almost constant discount to listed price. Matt's earlier collabs with Kizer have been on sale from time to time also.

    Wait...are those dropping bombs on the scales of the Bad Dog? This finally proves that Chinese knives ARE a threat to our way of life!

    Okay, bad joke.

    Do you know if the liner lock is titanium or steel?

    I'm thinking Ti, I don't believe Kizer has ever done steel liners. Kizer Intrepid in LL or FL...LL with a VG10 blade and FL with S35VN. The LL might be very affordable with G10/VG10 combination. I might need to pick one of these up.

    Hopefully, they make them with steel liners.

    Here are some more pictures. The Liner locks are steel. I have all of these in hand, and will be making a few small tweaks to them before they go into full production.

    I love that top Kane , what a great design Degs.....I have your Kizer KANEXL now looking it over to do a review and video and it is amazing brother. I just love this blade design , they did a good job with the grind as well , the double stand-off - open frame is cool too.....I really like that it came with custom titanium hardware also. My favorite thing about it is the plain smooth bead blasted Ti scales , so we can customize them however we want, with engraving or anodizing. They need very little if any polishing for the work you would want to do.

    I will post some pics soon as I get through , I am doing some custom work with it now...................that is a great option as I said that Kizer has left for us with many of their recent collaborations........Degs knives , Ray's and MAtt's designs as well.........................several more Cucchiara designs coming , hope more of yours too DEgs

    Degs?? Those Kane's are liner locks?? What are the bolsters made of Sir? I see you said that your liner locks are steel and the blade is VG-10 it looks like....

    They all look great , but I really like that Black one with the bolster.......looks super smooth

    thanks for your time Sir

    Those are indeed linerlocks with steel liners and bolsters. Made with washers and VG10 steel. They'll be at a lower price point.
