    Hattori Forum Cowry-X

    So, I was reading the description of the FH series, and it stated a "Cowry-X upgraded line" was coming soon. The standard VG10 seemed to have debuted in 06, and I was wondering if the upgrade ever hit the market, or whatever happened with them.....
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    I have the prototype.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    I'm lying.

    There was a Christmas special paring knife from the Forums series that was Cowry-X and made by Hattori. Expensive little bugger while it lasted. Other than that, I don't think there were ever any more released.

    Of the parers there were only 5 or 6 made. And it was a KD-Forumknife bastard since it had the "damascus"-KD cladding, the forumknives in Cowry X were supposed to have a plain cladding to keep costs down.

    Yeah, I tried to look it up on the site in past specials. Apparently it's been completely removed.

    it would make sense, since there haven't been many knives appearing made of it. i guess ZDP-189 won that competition.
