In fact i didn't like it at first, it was a classic case of aquired taste I was weaned on Buck 110 and Schrade LB7:s and thought the Delica was very Toys-R-Us at first, but that tip never broke in spite of me jabbing it into wooden poles to get both hands free etc.Wartstein wrote: ↑Mon Apr 19, 2021 1:05 pm
For me this depends on how much tapering on the spine is going on... If this model tapers exactly like the current Delica, but has a thin, high hollow grind, the tip would get very fine (fragile?!) anyway. Then the a bit reenforcing drop would be nice to have!
This knife will be about slicing, not about an extremely pointy tip for me...
Just my 2c of course. I don´t like when I have to worry about the tip when having to work fast and can´t take real care.
I believe you!
But still: The excact "first gen Delica tip" but in a thin high hollow... this could get a bit too fragile perhaps - ?!
