    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.
