we can still dream. i'm still 100% on board with a dodofly, especially as a blacked out salt with se h1.

I handled an Ulize in person when they came out and the ergos are brilliant. Would have bought one but I'm not a fan of sharpening & reprofiling recurved blades. Would immediately jump on a SE sprint though.
Thanks, Cambertree. I hope it becomes a useful stopping point for others. Your thought-provoking image improves it.Cambertree wrote: ↑Sat Sep 05, 2020 12:13 amNice thread, Marc.
The Ulize looks like it was made by G. Sakai.
You probably already saw this pic I posted in the Kris thread. It shows a whole array of specific nomenclature for features and parts of the Kris.
It was from a display of Krises and other Malay, Dutch, Portuguese and English edged weapons and tools at the museum in Malacca.
I’m hardly opposed to the Spyderedge, but would definitely like to see the pattern get refined into rounder points for greater utility (the Civilian’s nasty points can stay just as they are ).JD Spydo wrote: ↑Sat Sep 05, 2020 6:06 amI was fortunate when I got my first 3 Dodo models back in the 2003-2004 era. I was most lucky when I was able to get one of the earlier Dodo models in SE. These Curved Blades in SE are awesome and it always seemed strange to me that Spyderco didn't try more SE models with the Recurve, Reverse S and KRIS type models.
Evil D and I both have been lobbying hard for a serrated version of the ULIZE. The Dodo in SE was very aggressive for a blade as short as it is. Bottom Line: These "Curved Blades" have their place. But I believe that they would have even a bigger market share if more of them were offered in SE.
Amen to the SM corners. But if you’re also inclined to freehand, as I am, don’t overlook Spyderco’s slip, Goldenstone, or even the chamfers on the Doublestuff. I’ve used each to satisfying affect on the models here, and on my Spyderedges, too.
