The Ulize looks like it was made by G. Sakai.
You probably already saw this pic I posted in the Kris thread. It shows a whole array of specific nomenclature for features and parts of the Kris.
It was from a display of Krises and other Malay, Dutch, Portuguese and English edged weapons and tools at the museum in Malacca.
Had Ed Schempp included the Tuntong Keris, we could have said his Kris is both a recurve and a reverse-s.
Yes, I’d be interested in seeing some more Spydies with interesting curves to their blades here.
Spyderco seem to be particularly good, not only at understanding the cutting dynamics of curves and negative blade angles, but also at the way a knife operates in conjunction with different muscle groups, and arm movements.
Schempp in particular seems to be a master at this.
Could anyone provide some input about what the Spyderco Khukuri is like to use?
What about the Schempp Rock?
