    Think of the K18 as the Ultimate Cleaver: squash, chicken bones, frozen side of beef, whatever. Besides, think of how much more peaceful Thanksgiving dinner can be after you pull it out to carve the Turkey with :p

    A thin pointy Wharncliffe with 4” to 4.5”blade and the DEK handle would be awesome! :thumbsup::)

    Oooo that is exciting. Quite non-knife person friendly, I think. I'm always worried about the random concerned citizen when I'm using what I have on me to open a package for my nieces.

    Again I’d pay extra to get an fk2 in aeb-l before they bury the design. My move to Florida this summer will be a bit tough on the 3v with salt water.

    I haven’t had any problems with D3V in Florida, but I live inland by the swamp.:thumbsup::D

    Folder of course. But I was using my swamp rat hawk this weekend and I was thinking a Carothers lightweight tomahawk would be really nice.

    Just tell the wife that the K in k18 stands for kitchen. Would make splitting squash, watermellon, broccali, lettuce, cauliflower a breeze!

    I'm just gonna say it again. D3V bowie. Preferably a sharpened clip 8-10" blade. Or at least a clip that could be sharpened once received. I'd prefer coffin handled. Some of that nice carothers texturing on it.

    Never hurts to ask, but that’s never gonna happen, brother, I’d bet all of @Casinostocks knives on it, I am that sure.

    Here is a #stillnotnathan answer from the original not-Nathan!

    I'm like a sleepy old daft dog around here. I don't understand <95% of the stuff which the Boss says but just like a loyal doggie, my interest piques and I get alerted by certain phrases:

    I think that Nathan is into carbide wizardry AKA carbide formation optimization. I think that he's played around with quite an array of steels but if the steel doesn't offer him the holy grail according to Nathan, he will pass up on all them new shiny thangs. The only other steel which he has mentioned apart from 3V and AEB-L for future projects has been CruWare. Oh and no frakking Bowies either. Capisci?!

    Thanks Matt
    From what I read, it seems to promising! Tough, good edge holding and stain proof.
    Then again I know about 7.3% of what Nathan does :p

    More like about 0.073% if you account for all the stuff NtM has forgotten.

    More small stuff made from drops. Push dagger, pry bar, and kiridashi are 3 that come to mind.
