I am looking forward to getting to try out the Sage series one of these days. I like my EDC's 3" or less so it's at the top of that range. I have a Chaparral and love the lightweight and blade length as well as that carbon fiber. Not sure which Sage to get, the 1 or the 2. You'll have to let us know you thoughts once your Sage 2 comes in.testosterone325 wrote:Thanks all for the warm welcome.
I had an opportunity to get the Chaparral but it was a tad too small for me, and I have never been a fan of back locks. The Sage for me is like a slightly bigger version of the Chap with a more desirable locking mechanism (for me). I am just so happy with it. I cant wait for my Sage 2 to arrive!
Such a tough call... I like them both very much. If possible, get both. They are equally amazing, just different. I like the look and deployment of the Sage 1 a wee bit more but Ive only had the Sage 2 for about half an hour so I havent really given it a chance. Its wicked though...VeloWeave wrote:Not sure which Sage to get, the 1 or the 2. You'll have to let us know you thoughts once your Sage 2 comes in and give us your thoughts.
Welcome to the forum.
Yeah I've had similar thoughts about Sage 2 and Domino, even though Domino closer resembles a Manix to me. If I get Domino that would scratch the flipper itch which means I could sell my Southard and free up funds for more knives Can someone say Techno? Southard would be hard to sell though, it's just so awesome!Syncharmony wrote:Only thing that would personally stop me from getting a Sage 2 someday is that I kind of have my eye on the Domino. Pretty similar ergos to the Sage with a flipper and XHP steel. Tough call, tough call... I'll have to scratch the flipper itch one of these days.
I've heard similar things said between Sage 2 and small Sebenza. Never handled a Sage 2 but I own a small Sebenza and it is exactly as you say about Sage 2, PERFECT, in almost every way. Words like tank-like, lightweight carry, almost disappears in pocket, strong clip (the best clip of any knife I've handled). The only thing I wish it did better would be to deploy as quickly as a Sage 2. It is so buttery smooth though, how is Sage 2 for smoothness? If anyone follows Oromoto on YouTube he actually sold his Sebenza and kept Sage 2, that is how highly he thinks of Sage 2.testosterone325 wrote:I dont own a Sebenza but I have played with my buddy's small one and its the closest knife I can compare to the Sage 2.
Its amazingly smooth HOWEVER its not quite as smooth as the Sage 1. My Sage 2 lock bar is ridiculously tight and it puts so much pressure against the tang that it actually somewhat slows down the blade while deploying. I need both hands to disengage the lock bar because its so darn stiff. Over extending the lock bar is nearly impossible without using a pry bar. The plus side of this is that the lockup is insanely solid. Its incredible and you would be pretty convinced its as strong as a fixed blade.VeloWeave wrote: how is Sage 2 for smoothness?
