I second this question.
I had been struggling between deciding which I like better between the two versions. I carry the OG FK and it’s best. I carry the FK2 and it teh best. Then back to the OG FK and around I go again!!
Today a very close friend made the decision FOR me. I showed him the FK2 and he fell in love. So, being the kind enabler that I am, I sold it to him.

OG Field Knife for the win!!!!


Nathan,

This may have been asked, but will you ever revisit the original FK ? The UFK/FK2 are super sweet blades !!!! But the original is still my favorite :) Maybe an anniversary model ;):p:D:D

Thanks

Is it just my hand-o-meter playing tricks or are the wood fk2 scales textured slightly deeper? If so I'm guessing due to the nature of stabilized wood vs synthetics?

I could also be crazy...

I was just wondering if there was a list of items posted that will be available in today's sale or if I had missed it?

Because of a break in and theft last week I will be looking to replace some of my most used knives as possible.

Thanks,
JJ

I was wondering if you have given any thought to on some Fridays picking every third person to get a choice. Instead of the first 10 it would be the 1st, forth,seventh etc.. This would give folks with slower computers, slower fingers, no programming and slower lines a chance to obtain one of your knives.

Disregard my question Nathan. I understand it’s really not a viable thing to do!

Nathan,
Serious question - where do you see yourself in 5-10 years? What's next? What are the next problems you want to go solve?

Hopefully operating a stable knife production business including folders.

I'd like to optimize a HT for Cruwear

With the way the software "performs" it's already a lottery. That way would be just a lottery, but with more steps.

The sales slow down. A couple months ago a sale would stay up for days. Things will smooth out if folks can keep their patience. We're moving the shop and scaling up the K18 production so we're struggling to produce the volume of knives people want. We'll get there. :thumbsup:
