It's a helluva knife.
For the life of me, I can’t figure why I’m so late to this thread.
It may be that I’d gone off the deep end with a new Cairn pup when the thread started. But I think it had more to do with me being preoccupied with the wholly unexpected Shaman (and getting its crazily-sold variants), even though I had started clamoring for the rumored Chief soon after I joined the Forum. When mine arrived at last, I remember thinking “Very nice. Next Shaman please.”
I don’t really have much else to add that hasn’t been said, except to suggest that the Chief, in losing limelight to the Shaman, seems to be a sleeper, but it’s really us who have been Rip Van Winkel.
I’ve come to love mine for its pleasing lines, its feel in hand, and its flat-bellied reach-out edge. Of my “big four”, I put my Chief behind my Millie and ahead of my Calypso and Police4, with not a lot of air between any of them.
Like you, Josh, I’ve already, acquired the S90V version, and do prefer the CF feel to the G10 original. But I’ll forgo the one in Rex45, which I’m happy with in a Millie and Manix2. I trust Sal and Eric to give us more steel choices worthy of the design. I’ll jump on Cruwear if I don’t get it in a Military first.
