Exactly this! The shoulders on the sabre grind seems to bind up pretty hard in cardboard, and especially foods like apples.kennethsime wrote:Function. There would be significantly less steel to push through thick pieces of cardboard, for example.
I suppose we just have two different philosophies of use. I generally don't pry and would happily give up some prying ability to to gain a lot of slicing ability. Everything is a compromise just like your mud truck and sports car; both have their strengths and weaknesses. I guess if we're following that metaphor, I'm a little more sports car and you're a little more truck.twinboysdad wrote:Personally, I would rather have the saber SE than FFG. All my spyderedges cut well, but it is not a clean cut and to me the SE Endura in saber is a bruiser and a work horse that can pry with that tip. FFG Endura in SE would be like putting mud tires on a sportscar. I could be wrong, and am open to being shown.
