Sweet. I think that there should definitly be more requests on this thread for affordable AFI models like an AFI chaparral, delica, dragonfly, and other commonly available thin blade stock spydercos so that Sal and the gang can sooner work on it

Delica first. It's a known quantity, so the differences will be available to everyone to evaluate. The platform is cost-effective enough that people will use them, instead of hoarding them, and we can see if the option has merit for other platforms down the road.
A high hollow is a fascinating idea I was pondering about a month ago. If desired, I think it was something like a 13" wheel on 1-1.5" tall blade could produce a full hollow grind. I'm no fan of most hollow grinds, but it's really intriguing to see a high hollow as a feature!
Hey Sal, I definitly hope to see more k390 in locking folders. I vote yes to K390 for this project. Hambone, I did an edge holding study with my Para3 in M4 and with some tough material cut hear and there as well as cutting the usual cardboard and rags, M4 held up for 61 days with the help of stropping once a week and no sharpening of any kind during that time.hambone56rx wrote: ↑Fri Jun 14, 2019 9:43 pmSal,
1. Thanks for being awesome!
2. I think K390 or M4 would make a lot of since. I don’t have experience with either, but looking forward to more K390 being available I’ve heard that these are supposed to be incredibly tough, so would be great choices for needing to be really thin behind the edge. Open to others input!
