    Due to the large turnouts we're going to start do larger sales but every other week. So today's sale is for 25 knives and the next sale will be in two weeks. Today's sale is for 15 of the new DEK1 pattern in AEBL and 10 of the others.

    I'm continuing to sell off the last of our Blade Show inventory we've been building up over the last year.

    You can choose from inventory we have already finished out, or place an order for something we haven't built yet and if possible we will try to accommodate as we're building out our inventory.

    We have A FEW 10" Choppers, the Field Knife 2, some 12" Behemothers and 10 pre-production DEK1 tactical EDC in AEBL. I'm sorry, the Utility Fighters are gone.


    ^picture totally stolen from Imgur because for some reason I don't actually have a picture of a Behemother, lol...

    These are the first production DEK1 tactical EDC developed in coaboration with Lorien Arnold.


    ^ I know, I need to make better pictures of the new pattern but we're moving the shop and I'm over at the new shop space and they're over at the old shop still...

    The DEK1 is almost as compact as an EDC. The handle is well thought out and works well as a general purpose utility knife but is also well designed for a reverse grip. You have to hold one of these to fully understand it, but this knife is brilliant. It will not fit XXL or very small hands. It fits me (large) Jo, (medium) and Mark (XL) but due to the nature of the piece it doesn't work well with extreme outliers.

    The DEK1 in Delta 3V is $295 plus shipping

    The DEK1 in AEBL with a well developed optimized heat treat is $275 plus shipping
    Today's sale is for AEBL DEK1

    First come first serve for the first 25 knives. If this sale is popular we'll have another in two weeks with 25 knives. It will be different inventory but if your heart is set on something we will try to accommodate it if possible.

    Medium Choppers with Sheath (TekLok or Drop Loop)
    Black or Natural canvas micarta- $507
    OD Green canvas- $517
    Black linen micarta- $517

    Scales, substitute for basic micarta:

    Black or Natural Canvas micarta $307
    OD green micarta $317 (we are out of stock)
    Other materials available, inquire with Jo

    To place an order stake your claim in this thread and Jo will contact you to finalize your order.

    Price includes sheath (except for the Behemother) and shipping in the USA
    If sales tax is due (due to your location) your order will be discounted so the total is the same as everybody else.

    Shipping is already built into the price (BF policy) but if you get more than one the additional shipping will be deducted from your total.

    Come by here again in two weeks for another sale.

    Did somebody say Boot Dagger?

    Sorry, guys, not giving up my spot again this time.
    Jo - I'll go with an AEBL DEK1, with double red canvas micarta. If I send an extra $2, would you smack Nathan for me? I like AEBL based on previous experiences; but his post about AEBL vs D3V in this knife left me twisting with indecision - hence why I gave up my spot last time.
    (I'd have offered $5; but I figured you're married to him... there's probably already something you want to smack him for, now you can use me as an excuse)
