    New Bestech Knives - fixed blades and folders

    So Bestech have manufactured their first fixed blade and its quite nice. Its also extremely light.
    Made from D2 and either Carbon Fibre or G10 weighs in at 86 grams excl the Kydex sheath.

    Downside to the sheath is that it doesnt have a clip so would need to be lashed onto a pack or have a clip fitted which could be arranged.

    They have also released the Ascot which is also a Carbon Fibre/G10 mix
    Flipper with a D2 blade and ceramic ball bearings.

    Kydex sheaths are silly but the blades all look awesome. Of I had some free cash I'd be into one of those folders.

    Man I'm seriously conflicted over that carbon g10, not a fan of the sheath but damn that's a sexy knife.

    I don't have stock of the Tekloks yet - do you want to wait till they arrive?
    They will probably be an extra 10 bucks, give or take.

    Like the shape of the blades, similar to my benchmade. Good when cutting around the arse!
