    A few months ago I read that you guys were going to be producing a Blackwood designed knife. If this is true, do you have any pictures or info?:confused:

    I would say so. Neil designs a mean knife and Outdoor Edge makes a great product. This is one of the most exciting collaborations of the year for sure.

    David, is it too soon to put up a pic of the proto?

    LOOKING GOOD!!!

    Dave sent me this picture of the first production prototype. From all reports it took a LOT of work to get the production handle just like my custom version!! I'm sure that creating a mold that works through and around the tang holes would not be easy. I think the added grip and feel of the handle will be well worth all the effort that has gone into it.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the actual production versions. I'm sure there will be some minor tweeking, etc. Knowing Dave, I'm sure they will be right up there with the quality and performance of the rest of the Outdoor Edge line.

    I will be with Dave and the Outdoor Edge team at the SHOT Show. If you are attending the show PLEASE stop by and say hello!!

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    That looks great. I am glad they went satin instead of beadblast.

    Do you know what kind of sheath they are leaning towards? Kydex? Zytel?

    Needless to say that I am very excited about this project.

    That's a great looking knife. I would prefer a smaller etch on the blade.
