    If you all don't buy at least one of these you're dead to me.

    Yes I am certainly in for at least one. I have held on to my TGLB and my Forsaken Gemini unable to decide which I love more. The only thing I don't like about the Forsaken Gemini is the CBT grooves seem a little large. I wish they were like the old CBT like I have on my Busse BG Mofo. But it is the same on my Hellrazor 2 so I'm not going to complain too much. Anyways I think I will get Tan and black G-10 and DC to match my edc Park Ranger that I carry often. I can not wait to compare all three Geminis.

    It looks like the edges of the tang are just slightly proud of the scales? Otherwise, why bother rounding the edges of the tang?

    Unfortunately both knives are made from the same thickness of INFI. o_O

    So, that means we have to grind away a ton of more INFI in order to get it thinner.:eek:

    And that means it's gonna cost us a lot more to make.:eek::eek::confused:

    We'll have pricing up tomorrow:thumbsup::cool:

    Prepare for sticker shock!!!!. . . . o_O

    Until then. . . .

    Let's Drink!!!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I suspect its actually a cost-saving measure - avoids an additional finishing step after the scales are attached. The AA also had that finish.

    It doesn't matter for IF. It matters for how many to buy. :p

    Awesome Bossman!!! :cool:

    Question - since these are thinner than the TGLB, will the scales be thicker to make up the difference in grip size, or will the scales be the same and this will be a smaller diameter grip?

    Unfortunately price does matter to me... I really hope these are around $400. I can't spend more than $500 right now. :(

    This. And also, when will the payment ding drop? How many experimental test studies can I enroll in and how many times can I donate blood before Amy comes calling? o_O

    There it is!! Oh. Yeah!!

    I need to quit building handguns with optics! It’s hell on the eyes getting old.

    Murdered-out? Black G10 on black CG? That would look... well... killer! :D

    I was thinking the opposite. That the CF hides any user scratches better than BIG DC. At least a little better, IME. But both do ok.

    Thanks for that question and answer. I knew BIG. That’s one of my favorite finishes, especially after how it looked on the NFNO. But the D of DC always threw me. I just figured the first cut was the BIG, and second was the blast. But a double blast.... no wonder it looks so nice.

    Double Cut looks like Frosted Satin to me....the blasting removes the machining marks left in the "Comp" Finish and Blends the grind lines of the Flats and Bevel with a smooth transition. Look at at the Comp Fuller and the DC Fuller which appears much smoother no chatter marks.

    The price and rough idea of when they will ding will make up my mind if it's not straight away I'll be in. Look great .

    Sweet looking blades. Also very much interested in the price, have some great users but Brother uses a TGLB and I have a TG, 5 month old son will be looking for his own blade someday and this could complete the trinity! Not sure I could sit on it for 12 years before using it though so in the meantime.....dual TGs!
