    Thanks for the pictures. I am on the fence on this one, it's a nice knife but it doesn't excite me a whole lot I guess, it's one of those "If it pops up in a shop and I like it enough for the price I might turn it into an impulse buy" kind of deal . Do you have a estimate for the price? I'd imagine it's below the Jack.

    I placed my pre-order today for the regular carbon fiber one. I'm so excited!

    Those black PVD bolsters really make them stand out from the grey ones. I think the excitement on this knife might have died down somewhat. So many knives are being released lately it's almost impossible to keep up with them all and who can possibly afford them all?

    Although when it was first shown on Instagram the interest on a low priced Kirby Lambert design was intense.

    That will be the "Augustus" but I'm not sure when that will be released. I'm just a dealer passing on info to everyone as I get it - I don't work for Reate so I don't know what their schedule is on these.

    However, I would guess it will be this year sometime.

    Bummer. Thanks for letting me know.

    Do you know why Reate keeps using blue screws in the oddest places? The prototypes all look good and then when it goes to production in goes a blue pivot and screws. Even the JACK is hurt by this.

    If the crossroads came out in micarta with bronze pivot and screws then it would be a winner.

    TT, I hope you got that wrong... Given that the pre release marketing has consistently shown the micarta option, what happened? Supply issue? Quality/processing issue? Seems strange.

    And what might this say about the Chavez Redencion, micarta options???

    I'm just passing along what I was told by our Reate rep.

    Plus you only see G10 and CF in the photos of the production knives - no Micarta.

    Dang, I hope the micarta shows up too. Micarta was a buy, G10... probably not.

    LOL - I could post David Deng's email address so everyone can tell him they want a Micarta version. But he would probably knife me.

    They have a general sales email address.
