Username Post: Stability of Mission MPT        (Topic#920828)

Because my local dealer did not have a Mission MPK 12 Ti I bought the MPT.
I like the design.
What I would like to know is the stability of the MPT compared to the MPK.
To my mind, the MPK must be stronger because:
1 the MPK has a more hight
2 the ricasso means that some material is „missing“
3 the grip of the MPT must be bent lightly if it is full tang, therefore if you use it for prying I can not imagine it has the same strength

I can imagine that the MPT is tough enough for regular use and that there was also no broken piece in fielduse. Even though I would like to know how many percent of the MPK the MPT has. Is it around 75 - 80%, less or even 100% ?

Hi Sven,
I couldn't really understand the question. You mean the comparison between MPT and MPK when it comes to prying?

I don't know if anybody really knows it... but you can show us some pics of your new knife! Preferebly eating some wood

Hi Tonijedi

thanks for specification.
I meant the prying capability.

Maybe there will be a youtube video soon.
Will go out with some friends and test some knifes.
Attached you can see the MPT.

I know Rick does not like the handle but I think its quite ok.
