Is there hope of a K294 or 10V blade in the future??
Like a sprint run of the paramilitary 2 (not saying that because I like the pm2 [it helps though] but because of the edge geometry that can be achieved) or a Gayle Bradley with a compression lock?
I say compression lock because I would fear putting my hand in the path of the closing blade with those types of steels.
Or maybe (Here is the bombshell) a 4.5 inch Outdoors/cooking Folder that feels like a fixed blade when locked??? Not asking for a thick hunk of steel 5mm thick, but maybe 3-3.5 would be adequate. With some somewhat sharp edges or a swedge on it to use with a ferros rod.
K294 (or k390 I can't really tell the difference) and 10V haven't been used in a folder that I have seen. I know it will be maybe a bit expensive but people are willing to pay most likely. Especially since Phil Wilson has probably a 2 year waiting list (the release of the southfork probably made it 2 years by my estimate to his previous 1 year)
These steels with Spydercos knowledge of edge geometry and Taichung's capibilities with high end steels (as we see from cts lines and the 3v in the tuff)
Most people probably don't even know these steels but for the records ankerton said "K294 at 64 HRC made 1,800 slicing cuts through 5/8" Manila rope and it would still slice printer paper clean, K294 is an extremely aggressive cutter.”(http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showt ... 1-10V-etc)
So my question to sal is, Should I hold my breathe??
