    I’ll tell you what, THIS is a nice knife. It’s been neglected a little lately. Got it out the other day to split some wood, and was impressed with it all over again. Coming up on 2 yrs old in a few months.

    I’m very excited to see more of these. No plans for a single-edged DEF? What would that even mean name wise..

    Do you mean an unsharpened top edge on a dagger grind? I think I would prefer the regular UF.

    Gus, is that one of your existing single edge UF sheaths? I was telling Grog that the more pointy ended leather UF sheaths, like the one above, may fit just fine with the DE-UF :)

    Yes Mat, Paul made that one using Marc’s single edge UF, and it works fine with the DEF.:thumbsup:;)

    Thanks Gusmeister :)

    While I'm salivating over recent posted photos of the DE-UFs rolling in, I was hoping that the right side one below would fit the DE-UF which I recently scored with the middle and the left side one which have the more straight line spine, to work well with my other 2 pre-ordered UFs (both with added sharpened top tip). The last one (DE-UF) with the wood handles and satin, I have thrown a challenge @grogimus 's way. Will the Grogsters be up to the challenge? ;)

    Damn guys those Double Edge Fighters turned out awesome!!!

    Also, I am really jealous of that EDC with the leather sheath and skull clip Martin, I will get one of those set ups someday! Awesome stuff! CPK has grown to be my favorite knife manufacturer bar none. Phenomenal work guys! Just wish I had a money tree in the backyard!

    You’re right, he did say that. There have been a few on the exchange lately though.

    Same here @gusbuster & @TommyGun56. Though I must say, this "as machined" finish is reminiscent of the original FK stonewashed look (as I recall). It has FAR exceeded my expectations from what I can see in the pics.
