Hi, jp9mm:

let me check on that. IIRC, the Black Void Opus release date is not yet firm, but it's definitely coming.

It’s almost May!!! The anticipation is real haha. Wondering if it’s gong to be early or late May.

I don’t know. Things have been pretty quiet from them and slow to release new products with everything going on in the world.

Thank You.

What are weight, blade thickness, handle thickness, etc.?

Why is it a chisel grind? Weird to have that on a small folder.

Hi, Ramzar:

Blade thickness is approximately 3.2mm / .13 inch.

I'll have to contact Justin to find out the reasons behind the way the blade is designed.

Thank you.

The Mini Buster is released! Might take a little time to get them into dealer inventory, but hopefully soon.
Is the Mini Buster a limited run? I've heard conflicting info on this. I've heard "limited to 400" and continuous production. Also can I ask what dealers will be getting them?

Can't wait! They look fantastic!

Hi, RamZar:

The thickness of the Black Void Opus blade is 3.2mm/0.126 inch. We will publish the weight before the product is released.

As for the chisel grind, Justin posted this:

"
When designing this I was playing with positive and negative space - or the voids, so to speak. This is what got me playing with the internal milling and how it effects the negative space between the scales. This also gives a unique flow to the inner edges of them. When it came to the blade, the chisel grind was almost like creating a void space as well, because there is no grind on the front. For me, this continued the idea or theme that I was exploring and really tied everything together nicely.

Thank you.

I hope WE keeps making knives with grinds like the 804, when I was younger I preferred flat grinds but now I just want thin and nicely done. Your hollow grinds are gorgeous

NG VI-

If this is what you're looking for, you might want to check out both the Synergy2 and Mini Synergy models. Starting out with 1/8" thick blade stock of M390 & 20CV, respectively and a very high hollow grind to around .010" thickness behind the edge before sharpening, they were designed & manufactured to maximize slicing performance.
