Wow....just got these puppies in hand...all can say is this is a great blade, and my size 9/Medium hands love these NF handles. I am in the habit of hand smoothing "mags" for my users, and the non-mag fusion handle works well for me as well. The Mag Fusion feels a little big although not uncomfortable, and if hand-smoothed I love that handle too. Or if the mags are on thinner stock aka .25" like the CGFBM...
That said, I love these NF handles just the way they are...
Here are some pics - I was pleasantly surprised because I forgot exactly which combos I ordered and the bronze and maroon was an experiment. It turned out great!
Here are some bad pics with flash due to lighting in the house...
These are really nice knives in both configurations. The non-nuke is light in hand and for sure a venerable chopper in its size and weight class...the nukes feel very all purpose and are, of course lighter. Not that they are not substantial blades in their own right...
Does anyone know if these will fit in a large Spec Ops Brand sheath ?
The Nuke is 17.7oz, the Non Nuke is 16.9oz. For those that are mathematically challenged, the Nuke is only 0.8oz lighter. I was expecting a bit more of a difference (I don't know why). To put in perspective, that's the weight of 4 quarters.How much lighter is the custom shop compared to the regular one?
No, they are the same.Will the nuclear have further finishing on the flats like the Nuke forsaken mistress?
