Not sure if we can get a partial tang in production knife, wonder if it is worth doing or the price would be way higher as with sceletonized full tang. I have made one knife with partial tang and it if very nice, nice balance and you can get nice contrast between scales and the spacer.TomAiello wrote: ↑Sat Sep 05, 2020 9:39 am
Mine is K390, which is a steel that Spyderco uses, and that's not widely used in fixed blades, so it might be a good fit to make the collaboration sell (but at a higher price point).
CPM 154 might be a good option for a lower price point. Or even s30v, which Phil seems to have giving his blessing to, and which Spyderco uses extensively.
The partial tang is actually a really nice feature. The balance is amazing, and the knife feels super light in the hand.
K390 or 10V would be my choice, I like my K390 Police very much.
Garage boy: I had Bow River, and I think it is solid general purpose slicer. Don't expect to baton wood or pry something with these knives, they really excell in what a knife has to do, slicing and cutting.
