    You mean the Karda Superfecta? :D


    Bunch of pictures lost to the Photobucket heist, but my point still stands, there are 6 different Kardas by my count! https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/lets-see-your-kardas.1468088/page-3

    Aha! You’re right! I wasn’t considering Old school vs New school as separate entities, not to mention the 2-finger vs 3-finger iterations.

    Endless possibilities.....let’s hope this HB group buy will encourage more in the future. :thumbsup:

    Ooooh!! It's amazing how much variation there is with the DIW coloring. It's such a beautiful wood that I never paid much attention to before. I hope I end up with a lighter color, but really, any shade of DIW is beautiful.

    Agreed. That is amazing. I had to zoom in to confirm I was seeing what I thought I was. It’s like I’m the Predator and I can see my prey through the bag.
