Postby Polecat » Wed Sep 23, 2020 3:17 pm

Sal,

How bout looking into mixing upmwith El Calderone for a reverse edge, folder or fixed like his elvia or L-via? Pretty cool design would love to see what you guys could whip up.

Thanks, and keep makin me poor, Cheers!

I have not trained in the use of the elvia. Think that I saw it a couple of months back. Interesting knife, but you need to play with it to see where it fits.

This would be cool and never hurts to ask, but it seems unlikely with the other collabs already in motion (?). I dunno. They just ripped through the 3rd runs of both the Emerson Elvia folder and Kopis L-via fixed. Instant sellouts.

Very unique, cool and capable knives. With the mixed reaction to hawkbill blades around here, it’s a bit of a surprise to see how popular they are. I chalk that up to the power of social media, as Ed is on fire the past year or more. His other collab, the Libre fighting system plays into the appeal as well no doubt.

Along a similar vein, I’ve been on a Ban Tang kick of late. While he typically produces a terrifying zero-convex edge, he has some very unique designs that I think would translate very nicely into the Spyderverse. Another student of the hawkbill. :) :spyder: :spyder:

That would be a welcomed addition to my EDC!
Maybe you all can do a fruit knife with a sheath, since victorinox shunned him.
