I think it’s still ongoing.
They're still available.
Really appreciate the pics of the 6HM next to the standard 6. For me, the original checks more boxes in a knife this size. I do like the smaller HMs though.
I like the BO finish. I have a couple of other blades in BO and they are a good deal more finished, and more smooth to the touch. I find the BO on the 6 to be muted, and slightly rough. I haven’t beat on it yet but I definitely feel that it will not grab as much as a 6 with the coating. I do however, love the feel of this knife. Very comfortable and balanced. I oddly do not miss the choil. I have to say, I think this is a nice improvement in design and is now much more of a woods blade, especially with the bare, ground spine. Well done ESEE.
Just want to drop a comparison with my HEFT 4. Very close ergonomics, most likely why I like the way this 6 feels.
That was fast shipping. Purchased them Wednesday, and they got here yesterday. #46 is going to my dad and #49 is staying with me.
These are awesome.
Yeah man! I was thinking that would be a sweet combo^!
The 6-HM is definitely a keeper. Had a bonfire the other night and used mine for a bit of fire prep. I was afraid the handle was going to be too small, but it felt nice in the hand during use. Batoned a few small pieces of maple through the logo and it held up. Can't imagine them holding up to a lot of hard use, but I'm really not too worried about it and I don't baton that much anyway.
I'll post pics tomorrow.
Nice matching set
Anyone getting kydex made yet?

Uh oh, should have bought her a "decoy knife" LOL!
It was a twofer weekend for me.
Scored the GB and a JG3!
It's funny how a few little changes can really change your opinion on a knife. I have a regular 6 and then I bought a regular 6HM and I wound up selling it because I personally thought liked my regular 6 with TKC scales better.
So why would I buy the GB? lol Because I'm an ESEE fanboy and wanted to get in on my first GB. I initially was afraid I would sell this one too, but it feels a lot different than the regular 6HM. The G10 has a nice texture, there's now powder coating and we get a cool black oxide finish. The 90 degree spine is also really nice. I think the sheath for the regular 6HM might be better, if I remember correctly or maybe it's just the one I got. The sheath is just a little off, not finished that well. That's fine by me though, this was a rush project for us fanboys. I appreciate ESEE doing this special project for us.
You are cornering the market there DJ...I am sure someone will want to sell you a soul sooner or later !!
As cool as this looks with the 6HM, I’m thinking there should really be one of these with something in Venom Green
You are too smart. I would hate to get “Buried Alive” with those things.
