    Hey Jerry,

    Wouldn't you love to make a swedged 7.5"+ clip blade, saber/flat ground, .30+" thick INFI, satin finished with Res-C handle?

    We would absolutely LOVE to see (and buy) that knife!

    A lot of us would also like to see a choilless edition with some spine jimping, but whatever you decide on that is fine with us.

    Thanks for listening,
    Will

    Hmmmmmm. . . . . Interesting concept. . but the handles limit how thick I can go . . .

    As for the rest of it. . . . .

    Satin does look stunning with res c, I saw a stripped and polished regulator that looked awesome.

    I may be talking out of my butt here, but is it doable to make actual scales out of res c? That way they could still go full tang and spine thickness.
