    Yes....awsome tools. If I didnt already have a perfectly serviceable Emerson LeGriffe, I'd spend the money on one. If my LeGriffe breaks or disapperars then a HAK will be the replacement.

    Did you measure your finger size, and put it in, as per the directions? If so, you may be correct- she has to run batches, so if a common size is sold out, some will usually be available w/in 2-3 weeks.

    Very good point indeed!

    As a matter of fact, I just came across a sale on a Kershaw Mini-Cyclone assisted opener.

    Very nice, (& fast), little blade for a little less than $50.

    The Mini-Cyclone is my EDC knife. It is a nice blade (and pops right out when you want it to).

    Apple and oranges really, they aren't intended for the same type of use. I can't hold my folder, a gun and a flashlight all at the same time, I can use my HAK, a gun and a light very comfortably. The HAK is also much more secure in my hand in situations where I might lose my normal knife.

    There are now some very nice HAK on the website in my size, but the more I look at them, I get the feeling, (depending on the position you carry it), that it would very difficult to get the proper grip with your fingers as you would draw the blade. Which makes me think you would be drawing with your fingertips rather than at the base of your index + middle finger.

    This then would require you to "wiggle" it down to the base of your filanges or the need to use your other hand hand to push it in postion as you would a ring, (granted, not quite that snug of a fit).

    We all know how important it is to first have the proper grip on your pistol before drawing it from the holster, I would think that the same would hold true for the blade. Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to "Dis" the HAK blades, I really like the idea & looks of them. Just something I'm pondering as I view them 2 dimensionally.

    If a HAK owner could enlighten me to this concern, it would be greatly appreciated.
