The Bow River does look like the worlds cheapest Spyderco for $32.50 -- golly! But of course it is not out of the gate yet.SF Native wrote: ↑Sat Jul 20, 2019 3:50 pmI love my mules and my 4v is probably my most used knife. But I think spyderco is ahead of you. The bow river is similar and due any time now.
Other similar knives would be the enuff series or the Moran. All mostly affordable but the bow river is downright cheap. I will also throw the waterway out there as a pretty affordable blade with a nice steel that should last a long time.
Any of them. The pd1 is like cruwear. Good steel but not stainless. If you want stainless, I would get the rwl. Spyderco has made regular folders in steels similar to these. The B70p is ok, but it doesn’t shine at any one thing enough to stand out, but a good all around steel.
I came across a VG-10 wharncliffe the other day while searching for a K390.TomAiello wrote: ↑Sat Jul 20, 2019 10:24 pmMe too.
We've seen it in n690, Elmax, K390, AEB-L...what else?
Doing sprint steels in the Urban (european production) and UKPK (USA production) seems like a great alternative to the fixed blade Mules, to put various steels in the hands of a lot of people interested in trying them out, and in a format that lets them EDC to really get a feel for them.
I have been using a PD1 for the last few months. Great for a first one. Not a stainless so you get to see all the characters of a non stainless.
