Product Updates: 25th March

I have had a lot of requests for WilkinsGRIPs for Spyderco's Endure 4 and I have been working off and on on my design for a while. Well, the Good News is that I am just about finished with the initial prototypes and I think these are going to be great.

As usual, I have not copied the original grip form in a new material, but rather have redesigned the grip to harmonise and function with the existing blade and cutting geometry, improving on the original where it seemed like a good idea, but never compromising the integrity of the original knife.

So here is a first look at the new WilkinsGRIP N_Dura4

Please bear in mind these are dusty workshop, iPhone pics. I am working on the spacers now and Hope to have those ready early next week. Initial production will be in Black G10 with titanium to follow soon.

Other New Product News

I will be bringing out the newest version of the Ryback Bushcrafter this Summer. This time the blades will be ground from the same Cobalt alloyed stainless I am using for the Mytuko Cobalt. 

I expect to also introduce a new Mytuko Mini Cobalt soon too. These will be flat ground from the new form I have already introduced as hollow-ground prototypes on this blog.

USA Customers Take Note

The US Dollar is at historic highs against the Euro right now. This means customers coming from the USA will find my prices are almost 25% cheaper now than they were 6 months ago. This is because you will need fewer $ to buy the same amount of Euros. What I'm trying to say is ... this is a GREAT time to buy my stuff if you live in the USA! ;-)

Re-Starting Operations

The last three weeks have been very difficult. As those of you know who have contacted me to place orders found out, a death in my immediate family caused me to suspend all operations and close my shop.

As of today I am back in Berlin and starting to pick up where I left off and once again accept orders and ship goods. It will take a bit for me to get back in the swing of things and I still have a lot to join helping my family back in the USA.

So those of you who tried to order things over the last three week, please drop me a line again and I will also try and get in touch with you directly as well. Please be patient if it takes a day or two to answer. I am a total one-man operation from design and production to packing and shipping. But as folks know, when I take your money, I ship your goods pronto. That is how I have always worked and how I will continue to operate.

I want to thank everyone who has written with condolences and support and thank everyone for your patience.
