I usually use a K09.

That totally makes sense to me. The blade geometry is much like traditional whittler patterns, chip carving and most non-Scandi-Finn western carving knives. Short, thin, pointy and straight-ish cutting edge.

:cool:

Re: Shaman mini-skinny chop

Great option for when one wants to / has to /needs to carry a small knife imho. Thanks so much Wartstein, much appreciated man! Nice work! Do you have a photo to share of it closed? And maybe one where the liners exit the butt end? I can kinda see that obliquely on the first shot, but curious how i...

Re: Tang stamps and etches

Very cool knives. And thanks for the historical notes, very interesting about the motif/ icons used by makers. It is easy to forget how recent widespread literacy is as a cultural phenomenon.

Hi Pilgrim, I currently testing a serrated P4 to see if K390 would support a serration. sal I hope it does that would be an amazing knife. Hi Pilgrim, I currently testing a serrated P4 to see if K390 would support a serration. sal Holy smokes that would be cool! I second VashHash's sentiment.

Re: Golden made CF/S90V SLIPIT’s

I’d definitely be interested in a Golden made Slipit in S90V. I like my S110V UKPK, which I got to try out the steel. I can get a nice edge on it, but it never really excited me in the way my favourite steels do. Recently I got a S90V knife for the first time ( a Southfork). I was intrigued that Sa...

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

It’s good to see you enjoying that Crownlifter, Enactive. Mine is also one of my favourites, and is often paired up with a Spydie. The Blackjack and Crownlifter make a handsome pair. Autumn Gold Peachseed jigging is one of my favourite jigging patterns on bone handles as well. Here’s my spearpoint ...

North Coast Brewing Old Rasputin. Such a well-balanced classic. A dark, cool and rainy day here in the North Wet calls for a nice dark 9% ABV drink.

The Chef is supervising while the Crown Lifter gets all the action.

Nice! Looks like a lovely place; looks like it needs the green beaten back often too! I’ve got the 450 Rancher.

Re: Talking about your traditional knives

I don't have so many traditionals, but these must be my favorites for now. I love my micarta Tidioute jacks too, but don't love the brass pins and scales/liners. Steel and nickel silver are much more pleasing to me than brass construction. IMG_20200529_113152sm.jpg It's rainy here today, even had a ...

Re: Shaman sprints in stainless?

I couldn't avoid buying an LC200N Shaman! :D Especially in a SpydieEdge. At the other end of the spectrum I would love K390. Honestly, as it is, I am more than happy with my Crucarta and s30v pair. :cool: :spyder:
