No, you're not the only one. I'm fairly notorious for it around here. But it's not that I absolutely look for weight in knives. I like robust metal construction and weight obviously comes with that. The Shaman came heavier than I expected it to be and I could certainly put titanium scales on it without thinking twice. The pm2 is ok imo, and honestly if I ever own another one I WILL be putting flytanium scales on that one, as I've grown to dislike the lack of chamfering on the OEM G10 scales. I was disappointed in the lack of brawn in the Native Chief as well. But I carry knives in my front right pocket, in either jeans, work pants or khakis. I'm not clipping my knives to the waistband of some soccer shorts and going for a jog. Almost every knife I've ever owned disappears in my pocket, including the 10oz Cold Steel 4max. I can't even tell it's there, regardless of weight. This is why I feel the way I do and see very little drawbacks to making a folding knife extra durable.Dazen wrote: ↑Thu Aug 29, 2019 1:39 pmAm I the only one who likes a bit of heft in my knives. There is all this talk about LW versions of certain knives but never asking for more weight. Take the PM2, I personally think it could use some OZ’s. Maybe by a thicker blade or liners, or a backspacer. The Shaman is great the way it is, but I think every small knife in Spyderco’s line up could use a HW version as well.
Or alternately, have one 4" blade, with the first 1.5" or so plain edge, and the rest serrated. LC200N.
