About the BBN-M: Basically, Duane's BBN series is like a SNG with a "bobtail" end. So, it is familiar as the SNG we all know and love, and yet has an entirely new feel. As you can see from the picture below of the BBN-M on top of a SNG, not a ton of material has been actually removed. However, that tiny dimensional change makes the knife feel smaller in the hand. Reverse grip is also enhanced. While in your pocket, it is easier to get your hand in that pocket to get at your other stuff.

The Blade: Duane's hand double hollow ground recurve Pike from super tough CD#1 with military grade black oxide finish. Single bevel means for a wicked cutting tip edge. No jimping grooves on spine for clean look.

The Frame: Titanium lock with double radial texture bronze heat transformed finish and hand flamed 'Lightning Strike" details. All upgraded titanium hardware (Duane's new pivot, screws, etc.) with bronze/gold anodized finish. Non-lock side is made from ultralight Magnesium with double radial texture, distressed DOW 7 yellow/gold colored finish and has periodic table engraving. In addition to being super light, the Magnesium side can be used as a fire starter, adding some extra function to the knife. Both sides have been ball milled giving both increased grip and looks that kill. Titanium pocket clip can be configured for either left or right hand carry.

About Carpenter CD#1 Steel: The "CD" stands for "Coin Die" as in the material that strikes coins when minting. This high tech version uses Carpenter's Micro-Melt powdered metal process for uniform carbide distribution. Duane has been talking about getting some of this material for some time and finally has done the first couple pieces with it. CD#1's claim to fame is its super toughness (ability to resist cracking or breaking) as you can imagine that it would be as it has to strike other metals under high pressure. So think super tough material similar to PD#1 and CPM 3V. And like those materials it has less than the 10.5% chromium required to be called a 'stainless steel' (CD#1 has 8.25% chromium). So you do trade a bit of corrosion resistance for the huge increase in toughness.

Note: Last three images are comparing the SnG to the BBN-M. Knives pictured may vary from actual knife.
