    Interesting - the DEK handle is great, I hope the slight thickness increase doesn’t make it feel too “round” in hand. Either way very interested to see where this design ends up! I’m sure it will be a winner!

    I'm interested in how this concept is realized.

    You definately have a good eye for knife design driven by purpose.

    Dare I say it? I may pass on this one. I feel like the DEK1 is plenty robust for my needs. Now a different blade shape...cough wharnie cough...would make it a NEED, but I’ll probably, maybe wait for the DEK3. Maybe!

    guess i'm with Burton Knut,though i could be wrong!if grip/handle stays the same and blade is wider and thicker this could bring the knife out of balance.maybe the DEK3 is a better option?must say the DEK1 is a piece of art,a superb knife!

    I’ll be honest, when I saw DEK2 I was hoping it was going to be a sweet wharnie. Not disappointed with what Lorien is doing for the DEK2, but a wharnie DEK3 (or 4 or 5) would be niiice.

    Interested.

    @Lorien,
    I take it you already have a concept for the DEK3 and where it will fit into the lineup?

    I think someone expressed concern about the handle feeling 'too round' or something like that, with the additional steel thickness. As far as I can tell at this point, the additional material does not detract in any way that I can discern

    Lorien will the scales be textured like the DEK1's? I LOVE the handles of the DEK1.
