If the Kickstarter campaign a successful worldwide shipping is expected to take place during December 2018. “It started and ended with balance. When you hold it, you can’t help but smile at how well this knife is balanced and feels in your hand. We placed the center of gravity just before the guard to increase control and comfort, and to decrease fatigue. Those smooth, chamfered holes ain’t just for looks either. They not only lighten the weight and finesse the center of gravity, but allow for a solid grip and greater control even when your hands might be a little messy. We softened those edges around the lightening holes to avoid uncomfortable, damaging, sharp edges. Go ahead and run some paracord thru those holes without fear of intense chaffing. Yup, we put some thought into this design and are thrilled with how it turned out. “
