Ah, got'cha. SD question. I don't even think about SD scenarios. Sorry. But there are several here who do. I'm sure they could give you some input.

Anyone ?

Traffic is light on the weekends. Folks are out cutting stuff ;)

And now everyone is in a diabetic comma from Wouter's annual masterpiece.

Bump it on Monday.

The Ulize to me seem more appropriate for use in the woods as a folding kukhuri that for the intended use. I would probably choose this over many other spydies, but that is just speculation. I really want to get one to try it out i hard use.

I'd like to know what you guys think about this. I don't have this concern about the Police 3 because even though it has a big blade it isn't as slim.

Thanks for pointing me to this thread, but I was more looking for the opinions of regular posters on this forum, because I use the Spyderco Police 3 as a comparison.

That being said, I think I'll follow your recommendation and ask the designer too. Though I'd still like to hear what some of you think.
