Thought you all might want to see some real early blade images of the upcoming CB Shallot. The item number will be 1840CBZDP. Hopefully you can see the random pattern between the two steels ok. I'll keep you updated with some more images as the blade is processed and is finished up.

The Composite Blade will be composed of a 14C28N and ZDP-189 combination. Standard steel framelock. USA made. I'd imagine we will see the run land at about 800-900 pieces. MSRP $124.95. Delivery will be end of Sept. You should be able to find them at all your favorite cutlery outlets.

Very nice, very nice. A composite blade with ZDP189! Wish it had titanium for the handle but that MSRP makes me forget about the titanium real quick.

The blade will be etched, this will bring out some contrast between the two steels (similar to the current look of the CPM-D2 Composite Leeks, JYD II's, and Tyrades). The ZDP will etch quite dark, so it will look really nice.

SladeGT40, no news on the CB Ram, as it's been put on the back burner for the time being.
