Lucky guy, is he a BF member. I enjoy his reviews.
Ill try to contain my excitement.
And yes, he is a member here.
Really like the design, but I hate that it's a BHQ deal, as they hate foreigners. Well, apart from the ones with a big following on youtube. But that's neither here nor there.
Didn't he say that some other youtubers also had gotten their own designs?
He should have a Z Hunter version instead.
Birdshot IV and Talon Sei
It isn't his own design. It is a basic SAK with his own scale graphics and screw on scales. It is the current rendition of what used to be known as a marketing knife. Victorinox does them all the time. I like Nick and his reviews, but this isn't something I can get enthused about.
is it a contest give away ??!
If you didn't tell me that was a Nick logo, I wouldn't have known.
I like the Birdshot one too.
I don't want Talons face on a knife.
2/3 aint bad. But I'll stick with my solid color classics.
I ordered one . I have carried the swiss lite for over 22 years . Only bought it because of nick
On being a special knife , victorinox has made thousands of different scales.
I have the plain alox version. The content abundance on BF is astounding.
People will buy them for the screw on scales and mod the hell out of them.
The screws are just a graphic, but overall I agree a classic with his particular graphic us not his own model.
Honestly out of all I'd choose his if I had to, he's kind of funny though doesn't fall into my side of the knife hobby so I don't watch his videos.
The others one I don't know and the other I have seen once or twice.
I'm just glad Gideonstactical didn't get one but wouldn't mind of Cutlerylover got one.
That's not even a "knife" that I'd consider carrying.
The smallest Swiss Army Knife in my kit is an Explorer. It's got all of the tools that I need/want in a SAK and I've got 4 or 5 of them stashed in various places, including my kitchen
Humility aside, with all the criticisms (and praise) he heaps on knives in his reviews, I think it would be very easy for Nick and a cooperating knife mfg to create a NS modified version of any knife that he has reviewed. Designing a knife from scratch would be another matter, but I would be curious what a NB modified knife would look like and if the public thinks it's any better than the original.
I think the fake scale screws are a bit of an in joke for the channel followers in the same way Athlean-X a fitness YT'er always bangs on about internal rotation of the shoulders.
Now I don't have to say it.
Should have been a very minimalist SAK Cybertool with torx for other knives etc and a nail nick tool rather than can opener.
Hahahaha open one nail nick to open another nail nick . . . I need mental help . . . what am I thinking ?
( Although there is a knife or two with 9 /10 pull I could use it on )
PS : there can never be too many Nicks ! (aaaannnnnngetit too many Nicks ?)
PPS : add a tiny brush that folds out to clean lint out of back locks.
Oh me too ! ! !
We need to get him on here and find out.
From the YouTubes I'm thinking I would like it. One exception might be the wide flat handles. Last I saw he went for a Chapparrel over his famous all time best EDC (for us City Slickers) the Delica.
Lets see if I can give him a check list he can yay or nay :
Drop shutiness of a Graham Razel
Smoothness of a Slysz Bowie
Blade size of the Delica
Thinness of the Chaparral
??? lock ? ? ? what lock does he like the best ? ? ?
? ? ? handle material ? ? ? he is OK with FRN but goes for a lot of Ti
Handle length of the Chaparral ( I remember he liked that a lot; personally I still prefer the blade to handle ratio of the Delica)
EDIT how could I forget :
Acid green SKULLS !
Ordered one right away. Havent played with a newer Victorinox and I really enjoy Nicks reviews. Not exactly gonna be an edc item for me but its fun and sometimes I need a little joy in my life. *wink wink nudge nudge*
Don't think I will be carrying a knife with a picture of a man on it....each to his own.
