Sadly, the steels and heat treatments Spyderco uses aren't very compatible with blades of that length. Being kind of into the world of Japanese Sword Arts, I'd have to say that it is probably not a money maker or a game changer in a positive way for Spyderco to set foot in that world. I know for a fact that Sal is buddies with Mike Blue, the guy who put the challenge to Howard Clark to make the bainite katana, because Sal introduced me. I also know that the Glessers get to see the Bells of Dragonfly Forge each year at the OKCA. Next year, I will be attending the classes at Dragonfly Forge to make my own wakizashi.Strong-Dog wrote:I would buy, would you? Yeah yeah, mall ninja I get it. But I actually use my Swamprat Rucki and it works quite well as an outdoors tool. With Spyderco's history of value and great pricing, I would buy one in a heartbeat. And it if was CPM-M4? Please.
I always thought of my Rock Salt as a Spyderco Khukhri, but I'd be in for something bigger as well.Stuart Ackerman wrote:What about a Khukhri, fixed blade of course?
Something sleek, something purposeful, something to slice and dice, and of course, choppity chop chop...?
