The ATR, or At The Ready, is back! The new ATR will have black G-10 scales and a regular hourglass-shaped clip. Other than that, all the familiar features are back, such as the: compression lock, divots/holes in the handle, ‘dagger’ ground blade, and the little hump near the tip. It will be released in a plain-edge only, but perhaps we’ll see a version with a SpyderEdge in the future.
I liked how the edges of the handle, and inside the holes, were nicely chamfered. The knife seemed a bit lighter than my Ti and SS ATR knives. I liked the new ATR a lot and I’ll likely add it to my collection. Even though the clip has changed, I found I could still handily perform rotations to change the grip with the ATR. Sorry for the mess on the handle, I couldn’t seem to brush off all those white particles before the photoshoot.
