Yeah, the praise for the 3.5 has it moving up my list. I have been carrying a UKPK often, the ergos really won me over for the reasons you cite. Ideally, I'd like to track down a SB sprint, but the 3.5's seem to be harder to find than the 3's...gbelleh wrote:...for EDC, it's hard to beat the Caly 3.5. It's thin, narrow, light, ergonomic, and cuts like a laser.
I voted for Stretch. I love my Gayle Bradley, but it is somewhat heavy for warm weather/light pants carry. I look at the Gayle Bradley as a Stretch on steroids anyway!gbelleh wrote:The Para 2 is probably my favorite overall knife ever. But... I actually voted Caly 3.5. Specifically for EDC, it's hard to beat the Caly 3.5. It's thin, narrow, light, ergonomic, and cuts like a laser. The smaller footprint in pocket puts it slightly ahead of the Para 2 for EDC purposes.
Deacon, I saw the picture of that bolstered cocobola stretch you have. Is that the prototype you mention here? If it is, when is that thing going to be released, because I want one BAD!?The Deacon wrote:Unless I'm heading into Greenville, where there's a 3" blade limit, there's a Stretch in my back pocket. Some days it's the FRN VG-10 version, some days it's an original SS/Kraton VG-10 one that STR customized with lignum vitae scales over titanium liners, some days its a bolstered cocobolo prototype, and lately it could be one of the two Nishijin GF VG-10 Damascus versions. Been carrying the blue one today.
