    Oh I hope I’m lucky/fast enough to score one of those UF’s. That’s a knife that I can See using all the time like the fk/hdfk.

    I have this vision of a Loriendesign/CPK kephart type knife in my mind that I just can't seem to shake...

    You can be assured that any knife you two get together on and build will sell...Fast.
    I'd still like to have a folder in D3V.

    Yeah, that way, I can actually get one.

    I've tried the sales more than once and never gotten close. Always on the road for work on Fridays at 3pm EST and the spotty roadside connections just can't cut it. :(

    I've been patiently waiting through all these choppers and fluffers to get some UF and FK2 on deck.
    I'll echo what others are saying, fingers crossed we'll have pre-orders on both ;)

    For the newer folks: when the HDFK pattern did not have an official CPK name and when it went by the moniker: N.A.S.K, a very naughty lad in here named Justin tagged it as CPK-Fluffer. With all due respect to Lorien some of us stopped using it as Lorien hated that pejorative for NASK but some pushed their foot even harder on that gas pedal ;)

    Eventually, the F word kinda faded away till it surfaced again today :D

    my concern wasn't regarding my perception of 'fluffer' as being pejorative- indeed, I have respect for all workers.

    It was merely inaccurate as a descriptor, (and not much of a name, akin to naming one's child 'wheelbarrow'). A 'fluffer' is a third party to a pending sex act. The NASK/HDFK is a sole party and cannot, therefore serve as a fluffer unless your definition of fluffer is wide enough to include self fluffing, which I would generally refer to as something else entirely.

    so, while I did and continue to hate the name 'Fluffer' for the NASK/HDFK, it's not for the reason you might think.

    Nah, you're a great zinger so I had to correct your statement. Apologies to all for the hijack and detour.

    Now let's hear all about your LA/CPK bush crafter thoughts :)

    Hey brother! Hadn't seen you around in a bit, and didn't want you to miss that conversation, knowing your penchant for sharp spines. You know I'm firmly in the other camp but I'll be broke after the FK 2.0 anyway. :D
