    I may be interested. Any chance to get one full flat ground? What time frame you looking at?

    Yes - but I have to charge extra for the full flat grind as these are already heat-treated and 3V is a BEAST to grind.

    I'll probably start rolling these out mid-July. No promises! ;)

    I'll take one.

    I'm not sure on the handle options though... how thick will the scales be? If they're fairly thin, I might go with some micarta. If not, I'll stay skeletonized... I wanna keep the relatively flat profile so this can be dropped in a pocket easily.

    I normally use 3/8" handle slabs and do a contoured handle, but can use thinner stuff if you want.

    Most people that have had the PSK version describe it as a handful even skeletonized - because of the height (top to bottom) and natural palm swell in the profile. I made it that way on purpose. But adding a handle doesn't make it any bigger, since I heavily taper the handles into an "upside-down-egg" cross section.

    Just depends on what you want. The handle will definitely add weight and bulk - that might affect your pocket carry desires.

    Would it be possible to do 1/4" slabs and shape it down from there? I'd really like scales on it, but definitely nothing too thick. Something close to 1/2" wide overall for the handle would be perfect. If it's doable, natural canvas would be perfect so it matches my M.U.C.K.

    If that is too narrow of a handle for you to mess with I'll just go with skeletonized. I do want a kydex sheath for it for sure, either way.

    Absolutely - not a problem. I'll mark the order as 1/4" NCM, Kydex.


    Just a heads-up - I'm leaving on a vacation this Thursday and will be back on July 11th. I'll start on these after then.


    Thanks!

    Hey Dan
    If you do another run of these PSKs in CPM3v please let me know, I'm interested in one. I am with scrap on this, nothing to crazy thick 1/4" for each is cool with me.
    Either BCM with White liners (Match my WSSK) or NCM with Red liners (Match my MUK)

    you have the 6th spot - it's on my list. I haven't published it yet because I haven't started these yet. I should say, I have the blanks done, just haven't started the handles.
