One thing I didn't notice previously, is that despite the thinner blade (a great thing), the scales are substantially thicker on the Techno 2, so the total thickness of the knife will be same, or more likely thicker than
the original Techno. A more reasonable and slicey blade is awesome, but I was thinking that we would then be getting an overall slimmer knife. That is a big miss IMO. There was no need to go with thicker scales when you are going to a slimmer blade.
In the video he says "this one doesn't have a stainless interface because we felt with the thickness of the scales and the blade there was no need". Double darn on that. Sticking with the thinner scales and an insert is the better way to go IMO.
From this info I think I'd now rather have the original Techno, which is actually thinner overall.
