Since I last posted about the Gigas, it has undergone some changes. -Tang Pin Construction rather than Zen Pin
-All edges are rounded, even the pointed handle ends. This will allow for comfort during manipulation.
Every day, one step closer.
I'd like to publicly thank everyone who has made efforts and actively helped until this point. Thank you @nolobb for originally getting things into CAD for the first time.
Thank you @asweetoldman for refining and recreating into the Tang pin variation.
Lastly, thank you @squidindustriesco for reviewing the files and making some final touches as well as helping with the assembly, etc.
Thanks to everyone following the project so far as well! Love this community.
Best of 2018: @bearandsoncutlery Bradley Knives Kimura Butterfly. From Knife Magazine’s #Bestof2018 article (Dec. 2018): “One of this summer’s surprises was Bear & Son’s revival of the Bradley Knives Kimura, a sleek and solid-feeling butterfly knife that has been out of production for a few years. Bear & Son brings the Kimura back by way of a licensing arrangement, at an affordable price that we’ve come to expect from Bear.
Made in Alabama, the Kimura checks in at 5” closed with a 3.88” long wasp-shaped spear point blade of 154CM stainless, flat ground and bead blasted. The stainless handles are available with your choice of Coyote Brown, Green, or Black G10 scales.
The Kimura delivers a lot for its $159.99 MSRP. In addition to the materials employed, the knife offers bronze washers for a smooth action and Torx screws for easy maintenance and adjustment. The latch is reversible to suit your preference.
At nearly 6 ounces, the new Kimura is a bit heavier than the original. We like the solid feel, and the solid value”.
Yall hear that tap? No? That's cuz I went whining to @iamnotarealboy because my outcast had some play. After ten minutes of dming I had a new pair of bushings and washers being sent to me for free. He stands by his products 100% and it shows. Many thanks nrb. Don't change 🤙
