Well said gentlemen. This may be more of a folklore question,but some cultures/traditions say it's bad luck to gift a person a knife;that you should always get a token(say a penny)payment in return.I was taught that a knife was a "Warrior's Gift"-to be given to someone worthy of a blade(weapon,altho...

Wolfie: I think you stuck your finger into your nose & picked a winner with the 40/30/30 idea! I can see this as a 4"folder & a 4-6(?longer?)fixed blade.

P.S.-While empployed by Wal-Mart I recommended & sold many a Gerber LST with the 50/50 edge & recommended Spyderco to many customers.If I didn't carry the Delica I'd say the Gerber LST with the 50/50 would be my choice of an EDC knife(in fact,it IS lighter & more compact than the Delica!).

I thought the 50/50 or Combo edge was a gimmick until I bought my first Delica;now I wonder how I got along without it.Please note that Gerber,Buck,Schrade,etc.are marketing combo blades-'Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery'.Camillias has a 2-blade folder:1 plain 1 serrated.It or the Dyrad m...

I sometimes carry a Merlin as a MBC knife to backup other weapons.I agree that a straight blade that will both cut & thrust is better,but as a weak-hand blade the intimidation value of a serrated hawkbill should not be dismissed.
