    Will this knife always be available (at 190€) or will there be only one batch made at a given time (Like the Busse system :( )

    But if Knife research would be the first production company to make a blade of Vanadis 4 extra, that would be a huge statement :eek: :D

    probably only one batch will be made, like Busse.

    maybe they'll use a better steel for the knife they'll do :D

    currently we plan to make a single production model.
    If we consider a strong demand to make a second production.

    Vanadis 4 would be great.
    Vanadis 23 not as cool but worth attention non the less.
    Of course would also depend on final price.

    What kind of knife?
    Any interest into Calmax?

    Calmax would be good for very big knives (larger than the legion), vanadis 4 extra for knives smaller than the Legion.
    Let's make the legion the first knife of this new company a success ;)

    Better a knife done right while taking a bit more time, than a knife rushed and disappointing us on arrival. Thank you for the updates.

    The knife is just in my possession and have already made a first trip where I used to make us a bit of firewood, carving and beat a few stakes, cut some cord and prepare a sandwich ... in short, ordinary stuff ;)

    Yesterday I used it to light a fire in the house using the firesteel

    [​IMG]

    Today I made a "bit" of batoning, splitting and chopping in my lab (in fact I did firewood) :cool:

    First of all I am built the clapper

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then I made "ergonomic" removing a bit of shrapnel

    [​IMG]

    Then I started to dance. The chestnut wood is seasoned. These were the masts of the vineyard of a friend and through him I have wood for the winter :thumbup:

    here my friend (and collaborator as well as chief designer) molletta having fun

    after all this work the thread is still perfect even if no more razor sharp.

    this is the result

    [​IMG]

    will not sharpen the knife until it will be more able to cut fine paper ... for now even though to tear at some point.

    I will take a short weekend in the woods by using it to make a building then I will continue laboratory tests on materials less "easy" even seasoned wood.

    here's the videoclip

    I enjoyed

    seen, touched and used the Legion for a few minutes.

    Impressions: the knife is beautiful, the handle is comfortable and from what I've been able to see, it works fine :thumbup:

    it was shaving sharp before and after the outdoor use. and from what Tommy told, after the indoor use (batoning) it was still sharp enough to cut paper with enough ease.

    damn sheats... the knives are ready and we still can't have them for the moment! I'm boiling!

    now it's just a matter of time and whoever bought the Legion will recieve it soon :D
