    Thanks Ellie! It is very cool of you to take time to answer questions.
    I guess you don't have to worry about the blades warping during heat treat if you grind them afterwards. ;)
    Millit is impressing me more and more. :thumbsup:

    Yep, just a sharpened bevel and its ready to go. The finish certainly appears smooth.

    I think they want to scuff up the surface a bit so it doesn't show scratches as much.

    True, but it does show some character (lol).

    My 4.1 F2 is set to arrive today! Ordered on Feb. 8 of this year. Have yet to receive any notice on my 7/7 F2, which was ordered on the same day.

    Great news! Thanks for sharing!

    I wish/hope others will do the same as they receive shipping notices. It’s really helpful to keep spirits up.

    Just one request: maybe post in thread dedicated to the specific model (e.g. AFAIK there are dedicated threads for the 4.1 generally and 4.1 F2). Not a criticism per se, just trying to make it easier for members to find info that may be of interest to them. :)

    Thanks again and share a pic!

    Yep, I thought of that too, but I didn’t see a dedicated 4.1 thread on the front page and so I posted here as it seemed the most appropriate place.

    I’ll see if I can post some pics in a 4.1 thread later. I haven’t even been able to get my package yet as I work 2nd shift. I was hoping they would bring the mail by the time I left for work today, but no suck luck!

    Awesome! I have a couple other knives lying around :) and I'm torn between the new spec 4.1, 4.7, and CPK FK as the absolute hands down most useful general use knife I've ever laid my hands on. The 7/7 is a little specialized and the CPK HDFK outpaces it for general use for a bigger camp knife but the new 7/7 is amazing also.

    Variety is the spice of life! I'm only trying to decide between the 4.7 and 4.1, but the 4.7's handle gives it the edge.

    I love the blade size/height on the 4.1 but think that the handle on the 4.7 would be more comfortable for me. However I don't want the extra length plus height of the 4.7, I have a GSO 6 on order and want the smaller knife for carrying when camping.

    Those batches are getting bigger, nice to see! Without the 3.5s I am seeing around 70 blades with handle sets.

    Looks as if they are. But someone else will have to chime in to explain them. They’re showing #’s in the 108xx, 4xxx and 5xxx.
    My 4.1 20CV F2 is also in the 11xxx range. FWIW, I was told to expect it sometime in Dec.

    Oyster, does that mean that you ordered your 4.1 2nd in March?
