Are you larger Fixed blade just does not get used by me nor by a lot of other people. What I do use on a day-to-day basis as a small folding knife. I am Not alone in this. Many times such a knife is the only one I’ll have with me. It will get used for all sorts of tasks. This allows me to actually test what the steel can do in the EDC role, as well as what to euxpect in other formats. I don’t cut yards of cardboard or rope. My usage varies. It’s interesting to see that one will cut yards of cardboard but will not go through other materials very well and on the other hand one will do for me with some materials and do well on cardboard. It also allows me to see the steel rolls or chips, or simply folds or bends.
We’ve had years of fixed mules. They were not popular enough to keep the project going. However if you look at the folding knives, come out in different steals such as elmax, K390, etc. they fly off the shelves. Some are bought up by collectors and some bought Up by scalpers. But most are bought by users. At least I think so.
I think that since Spyderco seems willing then we should give this a shot and see if it works. And I think that they could come out a different color handle shade for each different type of steel to keep things from being boring. The use of an existing model makes sense especially in the light weight configuration as we can have a cost kept down.
the UKPK, Urban, and Lil Native slip joints All makes sense because they’re legal most places and even in the UK. I would not mind Back lock, etc., at all. But I’m just trying to have a form by which the most people possible can participate.
