Quick questian to Sal, what thickness are we looking at with the Z-Cuts? The thinner the better for me.
Also, it does appear that they are fully flat ground, correct?

Wow – a lightweight Sage 5! When they announced the LW Para 3, I hoped we'd see this someday. Now I hope it will make it to the next Reveal catalog.

Between compelling new designs — Ikuchi, Drunken, Kapara, Smock, Paysan, Waterway — and lightweight versions of established products — Chaparral, Para 3, Sage 5 — Spyderco has really impressed me. Maybe now the most innovative large production knife maker?

Hi Jackson,

The "Z-Cut" was designed as a general utility for the average person in a kitchen. The heel of the blade was designed more in the interest of safety. Keeping the fingers away from the edge. I've been using them quite a bit and have not had a problem on a cutting board. Food prep, steak knife, etc. It's very versatile. I've been sharpening them on the Gauntlet with no issues.

Nice vid Wouter!
Have you lived in the US? Your English makes me envious :)
Do you work for Spyderco or "just" help out at the European events?
See you sunday, God willing and weather permitting!

Thought I spied the Native Chief at the end, then I realized it was just the Shaman.
