So I've recently started using the Spyder-edged Tasman Salt 2 as my primary work knife. I find the combination of the hawkbill blade & serrations to be especially useful for cutting pallet straps, nylon rope, netting, and other cordage (which is probably 80% of what I need to do with a knife at work), and the corrosion-resistance & toughness of H1 steel are great additional features. I think it may finally displace the Native & Delica as my go-to work knife.
It's made me curious about the plain edge version of the knife, though: Do any of you out there prefer it over the Spyder edge model outside of, say, aesthetic or ease of sharpening reasons? Does anyone here have any experience using it for cutting fibrous materials & if so, how does it compare to the Spyder edge model? (I'm sure it doesn't cut nearly as well, but I'm wondering if the difference is as pronounced as the Knife Internet would lead me to believe).
