Thanks Cap'n for the excellent array of photos. Got my two today
If I was to nit -pick:
Both mine came with the slight burr in the hole as described earlier in the thread, the jimping and overall f&f is functional but not as refined as on the Elmax version. The tips sit a little higher than I would like when closed (no biggy as the kicks have space to be reduced down when needed).
Both came hair-popping sharp. Blade centering is good, blade grinds are nice and even, and the 'lock-up is very firm (which I like). The true 90* half-stop is an improvement on the Elmax.
The colour is in my opinion the best Spyderco have offered the Urban in, making it my favourite FRN Spyderco of all time. A Spyderco I can actually carry on every occasion, not just special ones
Now let's see how the AEB-L compares to Elmax. Which do you guys think will perform betterlonger term?
(I always take the pocket clip off my user
Notice the slight burr in the hole on the brown one and the rounded kick on the green one?
The above two photos compare the half-stop placement angles on the AEB-L and the Elmax...
Thanks Spyderco. I'm loving life just now. Xmas has come early for me this year.
I'm looking forward to reading about the rest of you guy's thoughts....
I've no excuse to buy another edc now until the release of the Ti bolstered, stag (or wood) handled UKPK
