interesting... i agree, but i think you get the most out of a short blade if it's se.
i find myself leaning toward se more and more. however, i don't know that i'd be able to choose on this one. i'd probably go with pe because i tend to carry a se pac salt iwb always.
Welcome to my predicament
OT: I love when I learn new English words here
(like this one)
/ Ladybug93: That´s what I´d do if I carried two knives: My main, large blade would certainly be SE, the second one a small PE (most people seem to like this exactly vice versa)
probably because a small blade will be more capable in se and a large blade in pe can be pushed into more edc/survival tasks like dealing with woodworking. not that you can't do those things with se, but it's better with pe. i'm just guessing... looking at my recent experiences, the types of things i might actually need to cut quickly, the fact that nothing that needs to be cut with a knife really needs to be cut super clean, and the fact that most steak knives have serrations, i'm not sure why we even use knives without them. furthermore, as everyone already knows, no one does serrations like spyderco, so every pocket knife meant for real use should just be a spyderco in spyderedge.
okay... that said... i think i'd go pe dlc for a lil native. for me, that knife would do quick light cutting chores and play the role of a fidget toy. it would be less intimidating than the yojimbo 2 or manix 2 lw i currently use in this role. the pac salt se (or caribbean sheepsfoot se if they ever finish cqi and are restocked at spyderco) would do any real heavy work. i also tend to carry a mora kansbol and vic rangergrip 79 in my bag at all times, so wouldn't need to push my spyderco edc into woodworking anyway.
