    Does the 18 have a false edge on top or is it sharpened? Hard for me to tell

    I'm hoping they make this one in Men's Sizes at some point.

    As someone with Trumpian mitts :D, I'm glad the tweener handle is still getting new blade shapes! I want to try the TKC scales to get it even a little but thinner as well! :eek::eek::eek:

    I REALLY would love the BK15 back again, but alas, not to be it seems.

    I'm assuming the BK-18 isn't going to be a good batoner?? :confused:

    Maybe two color options? Maybe not? Idk maybe the first photos was just the proto and this is the real deal?

    I'm going to get a few of those wrench knives as well!

    yeah - for some reason, I'm really grooving on the wrench knife.
    maybe because it looks kind of like a BK14 with a solid handle?

    Wrench knife has a near perfect blade profile too.

    I was thinking TM hunt (skele)magua with that blade shape.

    But I wonder if its the good old kabar 1095CV, It would be unlike kabar to send out a carbon steel uncoated.

    The Kabar catalogue says it’s “425 high carbon stainless”.

    BTW: On the BK-18, can you tell that Ethan, the chef that he is, also designed a knife with a handle to first cutting edge distance not unlike many chef's knives?
    I can see this as my new guttin' skinnin' deer camp onion dicin' martini olive stabbin' pepperoni slicin' knife!
