    Mine just arrived and the first impressions are positive. The Nfba has perfect fit/finish and it came razor sharp. The ergonomics are spot on. It feels perfect in hand. The handle could be a touch shorter for my liking but knife feels nimble I look forward to putting it to use.
    I hope to see a number of 4.5-5.25” blades in the future.

    Here are some comparison pics next to my Nor Cal Blacktail modded BATAC. As you can see they are very similar in size and the handle is basically the same length.

    Spine Shot - not sure if NCB removed any stock but the BATAC is thinner. The FFG on the NFBA should make it an equally good slicer though.

    I tried to line the talon holes and lanyard holes up but I will use screwdrivers next time. NFBA on top.

    BATAC on top.

    Please excuse the picture quality as these were taken at a gas station on the seat of my truck.

    This has been sitting at UPS for the past couple of days as I was out of town. Handle heavy for sure, it appears to be identical in handle to the Forsaken Steel Heart and NFNO. This is my first double cut.

    Mine will arrive today so I will post pics later. I have a blue coated with tan canvas micarta and a nuke with green canvas micarta that will be here early this afternoon. I can't wait as it's a great little blade!

    That swedge looks great. How’s the “lightened” handle compare to the handles on the non-nuked version? Is it an appreciable difference?

    Definitely lighter but I'll have to put them on the scale to see how much
