We are currently working on the third run of our popular mid-tech model the Wayfarer 247. On the first run we used Elmax blade steel, on the second run we switched to M390 and will continue to use it on this model. In addition to improvements in the way these knives are machined we are also adding a new blade shape! The 247 will soon be available with a Harpoon style blade which we think works perfectly and makes the knife more aggressive. To complement the harpoon itself, these blades also have a slight recurve (sorry to all the sharpeners out there). Another minor update that no one will probably notice is that we changed the lock-bar insert steel to AEB-L which, after some testing, seems to perform very well.
