Hahahaha. I laughed in real life at that. I'm sure you of all people can relate, sometimes even a smaller blade deserves a big handle. Not just for people with XXL hands but to use with gloves as well. I actually prefer taller grinds (in part) for more modification options. Look at a Benchmade 940... Nothing you can do with that. And after a year or 2 of hard use and constant sharpening it'll be a folding toothpick. I've often thought about making a reverse tanto/modified wharncliffe out of a voyager or recon 1 XL tanto. Large blades yield more options.Vivi wrote: ↑Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:26 pmThere's a subset of knife users that seem to think modifying a knife is taboo. I've even seen folks on here post stuff like "I have faith the engineers at Spyderco know there stuff, so why would I change the edge angle on my knife?"Pelagic wrote: ↑Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:01 pmI was thinking the same way. I'm halfway surprised more people don't do this. My s110v Military is approaching pm2 size from all the use and sharpening. And aside from it being in need of a regrind, i prefer it to a new pm2. Modifying blades is easy and can be useful.Vivi wrote: ↑Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:50 pmIt's especially laughable when it'd take all of two minutes to alter with a belt sander, and maybe five minutes with sand paper and elbow grease.marty_bill_ wrote: ↑Tue Aug 13, 2019 12:05 pmI think the only larger knives in the running for sprints would be the Native Chief, P4, and Military. And I get tired of hearing people whine about blade length legal issues. I just read about someone whining that the NC was like 4.08 and he wanted it 3.98 or something.
Pretty tough to add blade length.
