    At the expense of repeating myself, I'm exactly where you are vis a vis folders, i.e, being a total burn out. Not wishing to peepee on our enthusiastic folder crowd's parade in here, but I'm just patiently biding my time for the CPK-Folder and personally speaking, I'm very glad that Nathan is aiming for a robust yet bland folder for his first offering as opposed to a fancy-schmancy gentleman's folder. Depending on which way Nathan decides to offer the first iteration, I reckon that I'll aiming to snag a couple and then probably slim down my current folder "loot" from a putrid dozen or so to even less than half!

    100%

    I be just as happy if Nathan stuck w/ fixed blades..I do understand artist's gotta art, but...and does the world really need another Ti frame lock folder?

    With Nathan's D3V, attention to detail and focus on performance? Yea, I think it does.

    Looking forward. First time in a long time.

    um...balisong please

    The world which I live in, most definitely needs at least another one :D

    Incidentally I spent a year with Walter. He taught me how to grind, or At least he tried to teach me how. I ground most of the first Marauders

    Hats off, sir. What a great experience that must have been. Walters grinds and the grinds on those Marauders...the deep hollows? Still, some of the best and sexiest to date.

    How are you liking this knife? I can't lie I'm a bit intrigued. Especially at its price point.

    I think it's a heck of a knife for the money, if somewhat silly and impractical;)

    Don't bring "practicality" into this sacred place.
