I like my Waterway quite a lot but I rarely get to use it since my playground is mostly urban. Sometimes I wish I had a small Spyderco edc fixed blade beater, dedicated to the urban(and surroundings) life style but with a rustproof carefree blade. A 3 incher lil’Waterway would be perfect but with the edge all the way to the handle.That “ricasso” is in the way for me. .....
/ Vivi, I never handled either Street Beat or Swick, but I think the former has a thicker blade and thicker handle than a 3" Waterway would (which can be a pro or con of course, depending on what one wants in a particular scenario), and the Swick just less cutting edge...?
What I´d like to see in a 3" Waterway:
- Keep the thin profile of the handle, perhaps make it even thinner for great (IWB...) carry (and get a Street Beat for a knife for prolongued use with more handfilling handle!)
- Perhaps give it a slightly thinner blade than the "full size" Waterway has (so lets 2.8 mm instead of 3.1)
- And YES, on a 3" version edge all the way to the handle (while I do like the Ricasso in the full size!)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
