I have a .jpg of the REKAT/Spyderco collaboration that I would like to post so people can see it. I have been unable to get anyone to help. I will email the picture to someone who can post it here at Bladeforums. It was sent to me by Bob Taylor. I have tried to set up a link, but I keep getting 404, file not found.

Update: James was kind enough to help me out. As you can see it is below a REKAT Pioneer with a tanto blade for size comparison. I don't have either of these two knives. The pic was sent to me by Bob Taylor. Both knives are supposed to have the REKAT locking mechanism with the release now a sliding bar (?) built into the handle. I like this idea but I am not crazy about the upswept blade. Hopefully it will be out in other blade styles. I have no idea what steel they will use.

You can send it to me, but I probably won't be able to figure out how to post it
I will try though. Mostly, I just want to see the pic...now!

Send it to me at spark@bladeforums.com and I will upload it to this site and either post the image in this thread, or send you the proper code to do it yourself (so it can be in your post). Either way is your choice, it's just as easy for me.

Let me know what you want me to do and I'll do my best to help you out.
