On the UKPK, the model will be offered worldwide at the SHOT shot in February. It will be called the UKPenKnife.
On the smaller version (2.5"), the plan was a single bolstered version and an FRN version. 3 blades; "leaf" (like the UKPK), warnie & lambsfoot. Blades and handles interchangable. FRN in colors (not black). Bolstered version to have different scale materials "a la Kopa", limiting each material to a predetermined number of pieces.
Today, I'm carrying a 2.5" warnie proto in blue G-10
. Very "tame" looking.
I tried to have them made with one of our makers in Seki, but they weren't able to. This threw it back to Golden, and we're pretty busy in Golden right now.
I would still like to go ahead and produce the UKPK for worldwide availability and also the 2.5" version. It's just waiting for a production slot. I'm currently considering another maker. We've been calling it the "Urban". (I originally called it "Urban-Wind", which is the howling noise the wind makes when blowing through city buildings, but Joyce, Kelly and Gail absolutely forbid it saying that it sounded like a "big city fart"). So I yielded and it's currently "Urban"
We can also do a thin blade with a hole above the blade, think of a bird with a long upswept beak. It would look wierd, wouldn't be as strong, but would look smaller?
I should have more news about production some time after the SHOT show.
