The Dimension is shipping...

Yep, and the handle looks a little darker too.

Much better looking than the first set of pics that was released!
 
just got mine in. When I get home I'll be taking her apart, I'll let you all know if there is any retention when de-assisted...though I highly doubt it since there is no lockbar/liner to engage a detent ball.

On button locks the button will serve as the detent.

Do you HAVE to take apart EVERYTHING you own? Can't you just leave well enough alone?

Yeah, I take apart most of my stuff too, lol.
 
I got mine in the mail today. It's a tank. I liken it to a chinese made ZT. The titanium slabs (scales) and the blade are both 4mm thick by my measurement. The flipper and thumb studs can be used to deploy the blade. Even though it is thick heavy blade the speedsafe deploys it quickly. I don't think it is a keeper for me but it will certainly appeal to a large portion of the knife toting world.
 
Here are more pics if anyone is interested... The third pic shows how thick the blade and scales are.






 
Awesome pictures eschwebach! I really wanna know how well these work without the Speedsafe.....

The darker color in gray certainly makes it look better than the prototype. Removing the big TITANIUM label on the handle was also a good move.

However, none of the pictures of the prototype on the website showed the back side of the handle. Well, the actual regular production one is plain with no machined grooves!

Here's what the Kershaw website says: "The handle is titanium with deeply machined grooves in the sides of the handle and finger contours on the bottom. This ensures you'll always have an extremely secure grip and gives the Dimension a very solid feel in your hand."

Perhaps both sides should've been plain...

Can you imagine if ZT 0801 was machined on just one side! Heads would roll.

flame anodized:D

Had to sand the flats to get a satin finish so the anodizing would take with this method. I tried just flaming it with the factory finish, but all it did was make it look a bit darker. Once i sanded down the flats it was game on! I tried to get a good fade from blue to bronze....i think it turned out pretty good.

^^Thanks!! I didnt have time to do it the first night i got the knife, and it was killing me inside;)

For those interested....the Dimension WILL NOT WORK AS A MANUAL FLIPPER.

There is no detent whatsoever due to the button lock. It does not produce enough friction to hold the blade in place, nor offer any resistance with which to allow a firm flip. That being said...I'm perfectly fine with the speedsae on this one. It flips out with authority, and the button release is PERFECTION.
