    yes, 3/32" (.104) cpm154. I think since this is a user knife that we should consider leaving to heat treat finish or mill finish on, or go textured.

    I’m new here but If this is still open I’m definitely in for a 3/32 cpm154 Loner convex. TT with purple burlap scales, black micarta bolsters, black liners and lime green prinstripes, black micarta hardware is my grail knife!

    Everyone better jump on this one as they'll be a rare knife. I want mine rough sanded or blasted, then I can do the Big Deal file work.

    Likewise! Since I’m new here I haven’t seen the previous GBs... what’s the typical timing from thread to build to shipping?

    Welcome. Phil @VANCE could answer that best. However I believe some came out in 4-6 weeks. This one may be different.

    Bob is correct.

    Once set to begin. I will start a thread with all the details( and immediately" LOCK" it)..ie...Model, Steel and handle combos that will be available. No Substitutions in order to keep the process flowing. In the thread I will post the Unlock time, normally 2 or three days later, this will allow time to ponder your decision. After the the time has elapsed I will lock the thread and begin the knives.

    We aim for 4 to 6 week turn around and have been succesfully, with the last one being the outlier.

    Hope that helps

    If you Search Group Buy in this Forum, you can kind of get the gist of them:thumbsup:

    Don’t say that, it will go to his head. It already won’t fit in a 5 gallon bucket.

    "I'm in"

    Sandblasted or non-polished OD green micarta over natural liners and white pinstripes.

    Sorry for asking so many questions... I have funds for one knife and holding out on a Bushcrafter Jr. I look at at least a few times a day for the loner. I looked up previous group buys and saw they’re a choice from a few different scale/liner setups. How likely is it that something purple burlap might make that lineup? If it’s not I think I’m going to pull the trigger on the Bushcrafter Jr.

    If you really sweet talk Phil, he may find a set of those handles laying around.
