    I agree with Jo. It would be great to have you guys at BSW. You have a good number of active customers out here and many more who will be once they get to experience your knives in person.

    Give it a go @Nathan the Machinist . You won’t be disappointed!

    1. I'm in on the folder. Bring it, I'll buy it. After what I have seen with the dek1 and fk2 I got.....if you make a knife I might use, I'm in.

    2. Why not make yourself a sebby blade from d3v? Not like you could sell it, but for personal use with zero profit.....maybe I'm just dense but it might be better than dealing with a blade that doesn't fit your needs. Soft steel and not being able to flip/flick it at the price demanded have kept me away from crk. In theory, I like the idea but the execution is a little annoying given the costs of the knife.

    3. Did I mention I'm interested in the folder you make? Yeah, Im interested.

    This is true! Lots of loyal CPK fans out here on the west coast.

    @Nathan the Machinist - just remember happy wife... happy life. Nice vacation ahead in '21!

    I wonder if the amazon fk will have the same handle scale pattern as the signature fk so I can put my spare set on it?

    I'm working concurrently on the khuk and DEK2, and will send them to the compound together when they're done and after I've been able to put them through the rounds. I'll have my oven up and running within a couple of weeks and will have both models ready for heat treatment by then.

    Then I'll get working on DEK3 and a kitchen knife design.

    If I get the opportunity to be involved in designing something suited to the khuk steel remnants, I'll take it.

    I would like to pursue a CPK version of my North Sword pattern at some point in the future as well.

    If CPK makes it to Blade West, I will too (if it's possible)

    I'd definitely be in for a North Sword. That thing looks sweet.

    Uh north sword. If you can make one that will make me want to sell My busse ak47 I’m in. The busse AK measurements are spot on for an EOTW sword and just general fun. 18.5” blade and about 8” handle ( double handed grip)

    Lol. The AK47 is the ONLY Busse still in my collection. I'd be in for both a North Sword and a CPK NotAKatana :D

    *** then I could try taking up sword juggling as a hobby, between those and the K18 :p

    sorry to derail the thread further, but since there seems to be some interest, and the op contains most of the relevant info you all need, I might as well show you this
