Just a Thought...

Postby abbazaba » Fri Jul 01, 2016 2:20 pm

I keep thinking about a slimmer profile Slysz Bowie with a pointier blade. Maybe just a little smaller, but retaining those awesome ergos and contoured handles. The Bowie is borderline in my office, and not the best at opening mail. I think a "Slysz Skinny" would remedy both those "problems" during the work week for me, while still fueling my obsession with this knife.

The Pattada has contoured scales but they are G10. It looks a lot like your pic. However, it is still a little large. I handled the Pattada though and it is one svelt package. I am sure it carries very nice in the pocket and it packs an impressive blade in a modest handle. The proportions kind of clicked with me.

I like it better than the original, but then I tend to like my knives really pointy.

Wow, spot on. Never saw this, thank you! Now if it just had a Spydie hole and a wire clip... :) Spyderco Slysz Rat FTW!

I think the SpydieChef is neat, but I would really, really rather they'd do a Spyderco version of the Rat, or a Techno 2 based on his upgraded Mouse. They'd both be instant home runs, in my opinion.
