    I think it is on par with the example you gave. Blur's blade is 3.4" and handle 4.5", the Camber's blade is 3.0" and the handle 4.2"

    If this winds up priced the about the same as the S30V Blur I'll probably buy one. I like the size better than the 0770.

    I like the blade shape and handle shape. I like my Blur but don't like the recurve part of the blade all that much.

    And BTW it was the Scrambler that I was interested in and have been waiting for.

    Ask and ye shall receive - from Kershaw's webpage (Mods - its OK to post this?)
    The Diskin Hunter folder is called the Strobe...

    "Knife users who love the look of KershawÂ’s Diskin Hunter, but would love it even more in a folding knife, now have their wish.

    The Strobe takes the sweeping lines of the Diskin Hunter and turns them into a smaller, folding pocketknife. The clip-point blade offers a deep belly and opens with a handy flipper."

    This is definitely a must buy for me. Pretty sweet blade, Kershaw.

    I was thinking the same thing. It looks like it's going to be a great compact EDC size as well. It's a tad shorter than the 0770 closed, and the 0770 already carries very comfortably and discretely in pocket. Add to that a 3" S30V blade, and this is going to make for one fantastic EDC knife.

    Brilliant knife. I'm glad to see a new US made Kershaw. It will definitely find a spot in my collection.

    Reminds me of the freefall. Too bad it has metal scales.

    That's a great looking little blade. Kershaw is doing a great job on their folder line lately.

    It's one of the uglier knives I've seen.

    No one is making you buy one, or even look at one for that matter. No single knife will appeal to everyone, probably why they make more than 1.

    I just noticed: the catalog pic has a recurve while the proto doesn't. Does anyone know which is correct?
