Aesthetically there is definitely something lost in the regrind, but I think that goes for a lot of blades. I plan on having one of my sprints flat ground but I hope it can be done without taking the edge that thin, even if it means taking the spine down to 3mm. I thought I would really hate the spine being any thinner, but after carrying my Manix for so long, I think 3mm is a perfect compromise between spine thickness and slicing ability. I wouldn't want it any thinner since the spine plays a big role in the grip of this knife, and thinner means it would put more pressure on your thumb.Liquid Cobra wrote:Although I can appreciate the mods at work here, it makes me appreciate the grind that comes stock on the Yo2 as I don't think FFG works here.

Yeah, it isn't that the original doesn't, it was the ergos that sealed the deal for me and this knife but anything can be improved upon. Smoothing out the points makes for a more neutral grip feeling, so even if you have big sausage fingers like me you can use this knife for hours and not get hot spots. When you define finger grooves like this knife has (and so many others, like the Delica), you're at the mercy of the size and width of your hand and fingers. Spyderco does a great job making a one size fits most knife but we all have different sized hands. If you can mod it and make it yours, then you have yourself a semi custom that becomes that much more enjoyable to use.Jazz wrote:Your modded handle looks like it feels way better in the hand. Very nice, flowing, smooth lines.
