How 'bout a 9"-er?!?
Thing is I can't figure out a use for it even tho this one like to chop, so it rests with those two big stickers. Really I can;t figure it's use except for cooking!
Add me to the chorus, please.
Hah! Amazon just sent me the new hardback of MHI legion; I'm almost through it...
As my attire and daily life isn't generally amenable to accessorizing with a 9" sheath knife, I made it as a tuckable IWB:
The sheath rivets are spaced to allow easy attachment of a small Tek-Lock fo anyone who might not want to carry IWB (John).
(Now why can't they make the danged hole spacing of the small and large Tek-Locks the same!?! I can't get any of the belts I own to fit through a small one, but the large ones are huge on a small-ish knife like this. They need a "medium".)
I'd be tempted with a 4 inch blade version..
Darn Texas knife laws..
No stainless steel please and normal useful curved blade pretty please, a matched little pocketable mate to the Camp Defender .
(FWIW, 3V isn't stainless, which is why I usually coat it with something. It's just a crazy-good tool steel.)
Well, I've just started using it, but it is nice in that it can be pushed up in hardness without some of the risk of chipping that comes if you do that with other steels.
I've got some really choppy items coming up in 3V that we can compare against 5160 or other more conventional materials.
It stood up to the test! I should have expected no less, after the stellar way it handled some pork chops last week.
Spyderco Manix 2 XL
Camp Defender, version 2
You can see from the comparison that, in terms of overall size, the TS is about the same size as the Spyderco. It's obviously less robust than other designs Sam and I have. It is very "purposeful".
So how bout the teeny??
use from the Daily Kiris Sam should be displaying soon.
Daily Kiris? They're made more with daily task use in mind. Sam and I both agree this is not a good EDC for tasks. We both like the Shivvers, but want to give people realistic expectations.
see if you had any more thoughts on a 4 to 4.5 blade?
