Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

Delica for me...no question. I can appreciate the Native but it's just too thick of a blade stock and behind the edge and the cutting edge is just too short.

Re: Delica Wharnie Exclusives...MOARRR!!

Couldn't agree more. It's perennially in my EDC rotation and what I reach for most often. I too picked up the Rock Jumper to scratch the itch for this reason. Highly recommended BTW. But yes, I would jump at the chance to pick up additional variations. K390, M390...how about S90V or maybe there's so...

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

Oh, and one other thing. This design would thrive with the Salt community. Make it in that new green with LC!

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

OK I'm really enjoying the Rock Jumper. Super surprised at how much I'm enjoying it too. In the beginning, like many I suspect, I thought there wouldn't be enough to distinguish it from the Delica Wharncliffe. But, not in hand and use, I've learned otherwise. The beefing up of the blade stock and ha...

Re: Caly3 Lightweight??

I’d def be in. I’m a huge 3.5 fan and trying lw version would be right up my ally - especially with some good tool steel.

Re: Wharncliffe blade: Delica or Salt 2?

Unless you need extreme corrosion resistance then Delica.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

Received mine two days ago. Really loving it. The only thing slimmer I believe is the Chap. It's a little razor blade. Super smooth action too.

I'm watching.

We seem to have been adding "Warnie" blades quite a bit lately. Probably Mike's fault. :p

I'm sure Mr. Janich doesn't mind taking the blame! ;)
Actually, I'd blame Mr. Jazz. It was the Jazzelica that really turned me on to the shape.

Re: Endela Wharncliffe?

I'm so onboard here. Endela would be perfect...though I prefer the PE. Especially in some more exotic steels. That said, I still like the Delica size as well. I absolutely love the Wharncliffe blade and would buy all the steels...all the sizes. Maybe not the Endura size but certainly the Delica and ...

Re: K390 ladybug alert thread

Ladybug is the only Endura/Delica family model I'm not planning on picking up. Really looking forward to the Wharnie versions too. Here's hoping we see an Endela Wharnie in K390! Not to derail the thread but, I hope we see one too. A Wharnie Endela in VG10 would be amazing, but one in K390 would be...

I'm waiting for Cruwear, GITD, or K390.
^This also...another insta buy. Likely two of each. Sprint runs in the Endela (especially Wharncliffe version) would fly off the shelf. I know I would do my part.

I'd take any Shaman in K390, but I'd really like one with a smooth micarta handle - maybe dark green.
Yea, agree here. Micarta would be a winner.

Re: K390 Shaman?

The upcoming K390 Seki line was slow to become a reality, since there was a shortage of K390 last year. I wonder if it's generally not made in large quantities, or maybe it was just bad timing. Maybe 10V is the same? It might explain the limited releases. Hi Albatross, In reality, I spent almost tw...
