Posted this already in Kristis "Reveal" thread, but let me copy it also in this one, since I am really excited about the Chief..
"MAN!!! The Chief is really an amazing design and could probably challenge the Endura for me:
Just think about it: Practically SAME closed length (so length in the pocket), but still more blade, even a bit more edge despite having a very comfortable looking choil.. don´t know how they did that, for the Endura blade to handle ratio is already very good.
Not a lot heavier and presumably comparable slim in the pocket as the Endura... thought the Endela would be the first of the new designs I´d have to try, but now.. it´s the Chief, definitely!!
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
