Default D2 Honey Badger - at last!

It looks the calls for a new model with upgraded steel were listened to.
They also included the ability to reverse the pocket clip that can now be switched to left hand carry and a dark red G10 back spacer. For this run they also removed the large finger choil in favor of mare usable blade.

This is the large tan version I may have to also get the medium black one!

Sweet.

A recommendation for a large Honey Badger (8Cr13mov) took me down a budget Chinese flippers rabbit hole recently.

Now I have 2 Bestechs (Paladin and Scimitar), 2 Steel Wills (Modus and Cutjack), and a Civivi Wyvern.- All of these are D2, great actions, and I am SHOCKED at the quality, and bang for buck of these knives coming out of China lately.

Guess a medium D2 Honey Badger is next on the list.

These don't have the name recognition factor of my ZT/Spyderco/Benchmades, but they are sure great knives for the money.

I still can't bring myself to spend over $250 for a pocket knife (I'm "the poors"), and I don't even like carrying my $120 Pm2 out of fear of losing it.

These budget blades do everything I need in a EDC blade, and I won't freak out if I lose one.

Wonderful times we are living in.

The Honeybadger is maybe the best knife for the money on the market.

Can I ask where you got yours? The ones on Amazon seem to still have the finger choil.

Sorry for the long delay in replying. I only saw this now.
I got mine direct from Western Active.
Today I also received an email that they have all of their green models on sale for 4th July sale.

Default Prime day under $30

Just received an email saying that their small and medium models on special under $30 shipped with the option of including a different color spacer.

It looks nice.
I wish they would get away from the silver clip and just use a matte non reflective color. Any color other than shiny.
