Larry I did like the overall design of the KUMO but that handle to me was just not appropriate for a knife that I would want to make into a hard user or even a camp/outdoor/backpacking knife for that matter. Had that KUMO model been given a Micarta, G-10 or an Almite handle comparable to the one that they put on the original C-60 Ayoob I would have probably kept my KUMO model. And I've got a video on how to re-wrap those types of handles too but I just like a harder, more permanent handle than the one they put on.
Reject my good Brother there are very few guys here at Spyderville that I truly envy>> but dude you're one of them Just that awesome collection of TEMP 1 models you have drives me bonkers every time I see them. Also it seems like we have similar tastes on blades. Yeah your collection of fixed blade Spyders is absolutely awesome Keep up the good work my friend
Don't change a thing>> just keep building that collection of awesome Spyderco fixed blades. We all need an example we can look up to
If Stuart Ackerman happens to pass by this thread, he would be the best person to talk about the FB39 Sustain.

But out of box it slices paper easily and I now have a lot less hair on my arm after doing that test for you.
Feels light in hand,the scale are very smooth, but design of the handle makes for a very secure hold. The smoothness of the scales will make it very easy on the hand when doing repetitive work.
Its got a very sharp tip to the blade; won't be using it as a pry bar
