Salt 1 blade mod

Postby Surfingringo » Thu Mar 27, 2014 3:17 pm

Nothing new here...pretty much the same thing I did to my pacific salt. I really love these knives! Especially with a finer tip!!

What's the advantage to removing the hump?

Being able to easily puncture with the tip. I use mine mostly on fish.

I'm a fan of leaf shaped blades and I think it looks better too! So that's a double bonus if it's more functional for you too.

It is first and foremost a decision based on utility and function. But yes, I find it more aesthetically pleasing too. That "kindergarten scissors" stock tip is...unhandsome. Stronger tip is definitely a plus for some uses, just not for mine. I'm glad they make it the way they do though. Those who want the fat tip can have it, and those who don't can take care of it in 10 minutes with a piece of sandpaper. It's a lot easier to take a little metal off than put it back on. ;)

Nice! I'm surprised to see you with a salt in PE. Any reason you didn't get the SE in this model?
