    Hello all,

    I am trying to educate myself on everything that is out there. I've got a decent collection going, but I haven't quite really broken into the world of Midtechs. I know that Midtechs are somewhat hard to define and whatnot, but I'd love to be turned onto some brands and makers of them that I'm not familiar with.

    I picked up a customized Olamic Wayfarer 247 from another member here recently as my first midtech style knife, and while I do like it, I'd also like to see what else is out there. That being said, midtechs and/or high end production knives have kinda been on my radar lately. I'm familiar with John Graham Knives, Millit Knives, Grimsmo Knives, CRK, ADV, and a couple more makers. What else is there out there that I might be missing out on? Thanks!

    Southard, Curtiss, McGinnis (McGinnis Pro Line Mini Exo runs around $550, iirc), and many more out there to check out. Those three each have options under $700, iirc

    Think I've heard them go up on reddit. Don't quote me though.

    Get on there list and you can sign up for the lotteries to buy one. They only get sold 2nd hand for more than they are new from manufacturer. So your best bet is to get them new.

    CRK isn't really a mid-tech they're full production knives

    Right, I did sort of mention towards the end of the post that I was interested in Midtechs and/or high end production knives. Sorry for the miscommunication.

    +1 on Spartan Bladeworks. Lionsteel and Darrel Ralph are worth a look, too.

    In case anyone is wondering, I've had a look at all of these makers, and I think I have decided to on picking up a Koenig Mini Goblin once they hit the dealers here soon. That knife just looks like perfection to me!

    I have a strong need for a Koenig Arius. But will probably never actually get one.
