Clarification: Did you rank most favored @ top or @ bottom? Your intro could be read least ff @ top, but having read your posts for awhile, I'm guessing your most ff is @ top?
My reasons are a bit goofy for most to understand. I don't buy or collect Police, Marine, recon, Swat, Search and rescue, or Seal knives. I just feel like a poseur and disrespectful of those in specialty professions who served and earned the right to carry those knives meant specifically for their profession.
If the Maniago-made Urban were not my least favorite favorite, my DF2s would have to be for reasons of discomfort.TkoK83Spy wrote: ↑Wed Feb 08, 2023 10:22 amDragonfly - It's not terribly uncomfortable, but a bit odd. I love the way the knife looks, blade design...but, I think if it were to have a more subtle thumb ramp, or none at all, it would be a more comfortable knife. I keep it around because it's my only Dragonfly and only flavor of Vtoku-2, plus I like the patina I've got going on at the laminate line.
Delica - Comfortable knife, but seems like there's many other knives in this size category that I would prefer for one reason or another. I keep this one around because again, my only Delica and I like the particular model (OD green scales/Ticn Cruwear) color scheme, I've also put a pretty nice 13dps edge on it and it's a slicing beast.
Native - I've got the fluted carbon fiber version with S90V, and honestly...that's about all I like about it. I think the scales are waaaaaaaaaay too thick for the knife, it's kind of blocky. Even though the scales LOOK great, I think they honestly feel a little cheap in hand. Quite the looker with a great steel, but just not very comfortable in hand.
