It sucks that you can't be here at Blade, but you're definitely here in spirit.SouthNarc wrote:I wish I could be there Mike but AGAIN I have a conflict this weekend with a class. I guess the only time I can actually lock in for seing you is New Hampshire next year at the conference. They did reach out to you for that didn't they? It's a good time and good people.
-er, me, by way of Tyrion LannisterI drink, and I cut things.
Yes, that's a pretty accurate assessment.defenestrate wrote:Thanks for the reply, Mike. I kind of get the impression that you see serrations as primarily a utilitarian thing and almost not at all a useful for SD thing. Is this an accurate assessment? I will certainly keep that in mind when considering which blades I am using for SD (and plan to do some more testing). I definitely like a serrated blade for many purposes but I would always rather use the right tool for the job, whatever that job may be.
Take piece of meat - hang it somewhere safe and at shoulder level - make #1 and #2 slash (Kali) with PE, forward grip. Then with serrated edge, forward grip. Measure length, width and depth of cut.twinboysdad wrote:I am embarrassed to chime in here considering the level of expertise that has weighed in, but last week I was at my kids' BJJ training and they have rolls of athletic tape lying around. I ripped some off and test cut it with my Ladybug Hawkbill SE H1 and with my Caly 3.5. No question the Caly cut better. The LBHB sort of got hung up and I had to work to get a clean cut. It is funny because if had to cut something like athletic tape in a jam I would have grabbed the SE first. Probably nothing to deduce from this other than me being surprised and athletic tape as a medium cuts better with a PE. By the way no other parents were around so I did not set off any weirdo-meters during my cutting!!
