Great review, I agree 110%. I REALLY enjoy carrying the SpydieChef and find it incredibly functional as an EDC knife (almost ultra functional and I've had the pleasure of carrying and trying out a good number of models). I had my SC's edge reprofiled by Josh at Razor Edge Knives and the LC200N took a screaming sharp toothy 15 dps edge with a 20 dps microlevel, with no chipping at all so far from some decent use in the yard (I'm not shy on my knives). That steel is very good stuff indeed and I agree with the S30V similarity you mentioned Piter in "feel". Considering my deep love for the Slysz Bowie and Techno also, I hope that they keep collaborating with Marcin Slysz for many years to come! Cheers, Radioactive
If you dont mind, and have the time, would you mind sharing with me what you had Josh do exactly? I am planning on sending him my GB Air, K2, and now maybe my spydiechef..
Oops, sorry I missed your question until now! I have Josh reprofile to 15 dps with his grinder and then finish that off and add a 20 dps microlevel with his Wicked Edge. I don't ask him for mirror polishes or anything fancy, and he recommends that "recipe" so I/we can easily freshen up/touch up his edges on the Sharpmaker (on the 20 dps setting). I really need to get a proper leather strop too with compound - doing that exercise on my jeans only takes those edges so far
. Hope that helps, Radioactive
P.S. And I have the awesome SpydieChef in my pocket again today!
