I might have actually been interested in the #97 if it was a liner lock.
i am hoping for a Templar version!
Did anyone mention this is the Oregon Knife Collector show knife for 2019? It is jigged bone.
The micarta looks really nice, but the giant hot dog ruins it for me
How long have these been known?????
They were a surprise late this afternoon.
GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was driving in a rain storm when I got the pre-alert for pre-ordering. I just about had a wreck navigating by phone and looking for a place to pull over. Everything went smooth... logged on with no problem... hit submit... ...........................STAND BY........... But hey "stand by" is better than nothing.
I will have these knives. I will persevere. Watch... and ... learn....
I really like the Templars. They have always been offered in just acrylic. They would be gorgeous in ebony or Desert Ironwood.
Not to worry. Everyone is on standby.
...aahhhhhhh..... and.... rest. thanks Alan
The answer to any question that starts with "Am I the only one..." online is: no. I'm sure there are a good number of people who would like to see this with a liner lock.
But I am not one of them
Ebony 97 Templar would be so cool. ironwood even better.
So in the preproduction drawing for the #97, it certainly looked (to me, at least) like the blade might have a bit of recurve.
Now I'm looking at the production photos, and I have to say, it's tough to tell if that's the case or not. It looks like there might be a bit of recurve, but if there is, it seems like it's very slight.
thats not the blade shape i signed up for!
must have slicey recurve
Maybe they’re preventing blade rap, lol.
I keep looking at those production pictures, and I think it does have a very slight recurve, but it's so subtle it's hard to tell for sure.
Personally, I'm still on the fence about these, and a recurve blade will probably make it a no-go for me, mostly because I don't currently own any sharpening apparatuses (apparati?) that could be used for sharpening a recurve.
I guess that I do not understand what you mean by " recurve " . The straight section of the blade is not parallel with the spine if that is what you mean . I will use what I call a diamond stick to sharpen mine with . Should be no problem at all .
I see it as the belly of the blade is lower than the straight edge as related to the Overall level of the knife itself
A recurve would mean that the "straight" section of the blade is not, in fact, straight, but actually has a slight concave curve to it. Like a pruner, it could sharpened on any sort of rod system, but not on a flat stone (at least not in any way that I'm aware of). I'm looking for an example on a traditional blade that could be shared here (it's easy to find modern knives with a recurve, traditional's a bit tougher). I'll add an example if I can find one.
