I'm not American. And I like symmetry.
I think 98% of the frequent posters here have more than one
for each use case. So this is not the driver.
This I understand and don’t have a quibble.
My actual reason for asking is that I took a Gerber Mark I to the Vietnam War in 1968. I had occasion to do some cutting as we would with any Spydie.
The edge of this combat dagger slipped off a leather thong I was trying to shorten and the point ended up lightly scraping the sclera on my right eye. Stupid me.
Wrong use. The edge was not the sharpest by design. The Mark I was meant for stabbing.
So, if stabbing is not a goal, I’m trying to imagine what safety issues arise in a Spydie dagger that is either dullish or scary sharp on its edges.
