    View attachment 226159 I love mine, great knife and well made. Not a big fan of the blade coating though.

    Not so much, but this being sold as a tactical, i understand the coating. the coating always seems to show a smear after wiping off. Only with a coating of oil does the blade look "cleaner". Small gripe that isnt really a big deal, but i would like to have the blade polished or stonewash finish. Overall a great design Darrel and well executed by HTM. Probably sell this one day and get one of your custom gun hammers.

    Looks like a bead blast finish to me. I have the same knife.

    I want to talk about the HTM Gun Hammer. I'm only one small voice, but I'm tired of 3.5" blades - boring. Since I want one of your flipper knives and have seen the price for a full custom, I've come to peace with two facts: I can't afford the custom and I won't ever buy another 3.5" blade folder.

    Consider your first HTM Gun Hammer ordered if and when you get around to releasing something at or very "near" the 4" blade length. Thanks Darrel, I wish I could buy one of your pretty customs but can't. :(

    Yes sir, I've seen those and they're really cool. I used to collect "shank" style knives like Italian autos but they lost their allure. I recall that you mentioned once that it woudn't be that long before an HTM gun hammer would be available in the 4"ish neighborhood. I'm waiting on that day, but my SS checks have started (for now) and I hope you don't wait too many years. You might lose a sale! :eek:

    Kidding aside Darrel, your customs blow me away, you've indeed mastered your craft! :thumbup:

    i really like what ive seen of the Gunhammer, one thing id change/offer is a slightly bellied (non recurve) version of the Radian blade. it would end up more like Japanese style tanto (which is under represented in a sea of American tanto knives).

    I Picked up a GH2 With Alum earth color Handal With Radial Blade. And Love it. I hope to get a custom.
    so are HTM no longer with DDR? Was hoping to grab a Frame Lock Carbon Fiber HTM Sometime as the GH2 is a Liner Lock
