    I've been waiting two years for this knife, glad it's finally coming to fruition. I really wanted one with a bolster on it.
    Doesn't mean I'll pass this one up.
    @Ankerson, do you know if the HT is going to be the same as the concept knife ?

    All the info I have right now is the Production sample, took the specs and posted.

    Once I have more info and or Spyderco releases the full specs etc we will let everyone know.

    Different steel, the concept was CPM 10V, production is CPM 4V.

    Couldn't remember. Maybe, I read that some were going to be offered also in 4V

    10V was an experiment to see if it would hold up to the use a knife like this will see and it did just fine.

    However we felt CPM 4V would be a much better choice, and could make it thinner.

    I definitely prefer 4V, I've had better edge retention with 4V than any other tool steel. I wouldn't turn a nose up to 10V either.
    Both have been stellar performers

    Congrats on the blade!

    My ears perked up when I was watching Eric at the shot show, I wasn't sure if it was you @Ankerson When I heard your name.

    Looks great

    Is that the name they're going with? The Ankerson/Sanders.

    They could combine your names and call it the "Dank."

    I love how thin it is. I may have to pick one up as an accompaniment to the custom I have on order with Darrin.

    It's pretty light for a knife that size and strength.

    How does it feel in the hand? I love that coke bottle contour that Darrin does, but the couple knives of his that I've used had handles a bit large for my medium sized paws.

    Feels great in hand, like air.

    I doubt you will have any issues holding it, we adjusted the handle over time.
