    I have really become a fan of the look of black canvas and bare SR101 after it gets a good patina on it. Makes for a very "tough" looking blade. This thing is gonna look awesome.

    Is this the same length as the other FBM's?

    Everyone should have a Mistress. My preference is for my first; the very sexy OG model dressed in sleek CBT. This new lady should be amazing, as well.

    Saying a little prayer that the grinder gremlin keeps his filthy little claws off of these beauties.

    This will make a lot of people happy. This has been requested many many times.

    Might just be my eyes playing tricks on me, but this BG version looks to have a higher saber grind than the model Rob posted a pic of.

    Doesn't look like magnum vs standard handles are an option anymore. That's too bad.

    I have a battle grade double talon battle mistress, and I have a question, what is the main difference between the DTBM and the FBM? I mean, other than than the different handle, different spine, and a little bit difference in blade length. The blade of the FBM seems a bit wider than the DTBM, correct?

    ok, that is pretty cool.
    Can we order it naked like here in the first post or does it come with the black finish as in the pic I got in the email notice?
    Thanks guys for the fantastic knives.
    ETA: OK, I see now that it was in fact a pic in the second page, not the first post.

    It does look a little higher. It will make it super slicey, yet with enough guts behind it for hard chopping use.

    In case you didn't already find it, yes, 10" is the normal length for the FBMs. The Ergos are a little shorter at 9.5" and the BWMs and NMFBMs are a bit longer (10.25" and 11.5", respectively) based on publish specs.

    (Seeing the old prices I missed out on always makes me tear up a little, lol :()

    I have a DTBM as well and look forward to finding out what all those little differences add up to...

    Same here - spec wise, pretty similar to my DTBM. If it had CBT, would have pushed me over the fence. Besides, all these offerings in between add more time before shipping of that TGLB LE that's coming soon! So I'm glad these already sold out in the first hour, so now it's all about next week :p

    o_O 2:15 am post...I'll chop this one up as that and leave it there.

    Speaking of chopping, did you guys check out the Field n Stream link in the email for, "The 20 Best Knives Ever Made?" Just two sentences and two hypothetical questions in, I had to stop reading as the 'Author' referenced chopping down a, "Telephone pole." :rolleyes:
