Anybody picked up the October 2010 issue of Knives Illustrated? There is an article speaking very highly of the MPK. The author of the article put it to test against Tops and ZT knives - chopping frozen wood, cutting electrical cables and piercing a steel drum. The MPK performed just as well as the steel knives. Not bad for a blade that is made from a material that is, according to so many "experts", suitable for framelocks and bolsters but not for the blade.

Does anyone know from which age the knife used is? It looks a pretty old one to me...

I asked Anthony to order some reprints. I also asked him to post it on the website. Haven't seen the article yet, but looking forward to it.

If it looked like an older one and performed well, must have been one of the ones I made !

Sorry Rick but it's not one of yours. It's marked MPK 12-Ti. I'd post a scan of the article here but don't want to violate any copyright laws...

Looks like a keeper if it is one of the rare ones that John actually heat treated.
