Right now they’re trying to decide if anyone would be interested in another limited run, this time in William Gregor‘s Titanium. They’re apparently looking at a variety of finished, including DLC (Diamond Like Coating) Black Fallout, DLC Black, and Camo.
The MK Ultra in any material/color combo is JHK’s smallest knife yet (you can see it in the picture compared to their Kwaiback). It has a Ti frame (.125 in. thick), with a blade that will be equally…well, thin. They type of steel to be used has yet to be decided.
