This model is on a fast track to production. The concept model was only unveiled last year, and this year it’s a production prototype. It’s been my experience that most knives take about a year or two at least in the concept stage, before they become a production prototype. Dialex designed the knife to be the perfect knife for a new knife user. That explains the huge cutout in the handle, to provide a safe grip. I think a lot of knife users will appreciate that feature, not just newbies. The wide leaf shape blade looks like a nice slicer. This could be a nice camp folder.
