I just had another look at my pikes and it would appear that I have three of the same variants as you Patrick

please click on the fullsize image tab for clearer detail



The top one appears to be the thinnest with no EPM's and lacks the slight bulge in the neck of the tip, unlike in the V.1 pic, shown on the IG reference site.
Is it a V.1 - MITW?

The second is thicker and a darker grey, no EPM's, with the slight bulge on one side of the neck of the tip (circle 1)
Is it a V.3 - HK?

The third is also around the same thickness as two, but lighter in colour, a thicker neck, has EPM marks and a tapered end, which could just be due to a mold error or excessive flashing removal (circle 2)
Is it a V.2 - MIHK?



none of my six pikes have misaligned hand grips though.

Hey Chris, thanks for checking your pikes. It seems you have the same three different pike moulds as I found in my collection ...  Very Happy

... but are you sure that the top one in your comparison shot is thinner than the others and is a V1? And the second one is V1? Isn't it the other way around?  scratch

If it is the other way around it would perfectly match my observations.

yeah your right Patrick, it makes sense that the middle one in my pic is a V.1, it was just the dark colour that threw me, as the colour isn't mentioned on the IG reference guide, and it looks quite light in that pic.

so:

middle V.1 - MITW

bottom V.2 - MIHK

Top V.3 - HK

thank's Patrick  Very Happy

Great observations everybody!! I knew there was a mismatch one ( not alined) and a alined one besides the EPM one!

I am very happy you could also sort them by COOs Patrick!! KUDOS!!! cheers

I never had the time! So great work you all! Great to know my mind still works well Razz Razz

Now we know everything: COOs, Molds, Fakes.....go on with the boobies!!! Shocked Laughing

Chris, it's great that our observations match. Very Happy

Wolff, thanks for the kudos. Embarassed


I still hope for confirmations of the possible V3!?

This is the first (and only) accessory so far that has made my eyes strain from the comparison process.. No
