    I have always thought it would be great success, too. Glad to take the pics, they needed to get done and I'd been putting it off, lol.

    Great side-by-side and comparison shots Bob :thumbsup:

    I had always thought that the prototype Heavy Chopper was actually a larger and longer pattern as compared to the LC / RLC, but obviously it is the same length but with different blade shape and the added heft. I seem to recall from one of Nathan's past postings that the MC was going to be a tweener of the LC and the Behemoth. If so, :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Can't wait to get those NASKs. This size CPK has been missing from the lineup of those who have not been in CPK for several years and do not own Shiv and UF. There was going to be a wide gap going from the FK to the LC without anything in-between. But then again I am a layman in terms of tooling and production but I do have proclivities for thinking purely in marketing terms.

    The Shiv or UF are strictly fighters! The HDFK is an all around knife that can be used for almost anything! So in reality, This type of knife with a 6.5 inch blade has never been offeredo_O:oops::eek::thumbsup:

    Nathan, this has probably been addressed previously,(just saw your response to this on the previous pages) but can you tell me the Thickness of the blade on the MC that will be offered? Same length as the LC with thicker stock? Also do you have any revised updates of when the HDFK may begin shipping-Thanks:):thumbsup:

    It would be great if someone could research all the past and current CPKs physical stats (OAL, BL, edge DPS, stock thickness, etc...) make up a table and have it posted as a sticky for reference purposes.

    TBT, I don't mind doing it and there's plenty of info out there so that even a bimbo like me can string something together, but I will not do so without Nathan's permission and I will not post it as my own thread. I'm willing to email it to Nathan for his approval and making final corrections which in turn he can post / sticky on his own. Of course, he would be the best source to do this but I have a suspicions that he's a busy fella!

    I am sure that perhaps both Mr. B and Justin can help me out with source info as both of those Gents are also supreme CPK buffs.

    I made a couple threads with details relevant to the models but they got little traffic so I abandoned them.

    Jake, just in case Nathan is too busy with the upcoming tasks at hand; this is what I could find from his recent posts:

    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/random-thought-thread.1507196/page-50#post-17407639

    He had indicated that they were cutting chips and planning on producing "hundreds" of them...

    Bear with me as I try to find the link to the CAD photo link...

    Edit: here you go...
