just looked at the stats, and 6.5oz makes 'em a heavy folder, I am glad they met your expectations mate, nothing worse than when a new knife doesn't.I love your enthusiasm. I often order two at a time too, to justify the cost of postage (the justification works for me ).
Just checked the mail, and my two real steel controls are here. Geez they're big and heavy . The tall handle is as comfortable as I thought - more so. I think you would like these Wave man. For me they're just big tough knives. I imagine you would call them beaters. Although the CF / S35VN version is over $300. Oh, I like it. Great pass through. Lock up on both looks like bang on 50% - I'd be happier with less. Slab of G10 one side, stainless steel the other. I think if you were after something like a cold steel AD10, you'd be quite happy with one of these (or two )
Yes, they're brutes. I'm still playing with them . The weight is a novelty. Although it's 5.26 oz for the model I have, and 5.2 for the cf / s35vn. I have a couple of knives that aren't great, but the prices I pay I don't lose any sleep over it. I've made one big purchase (for me), the bradford guardian 3; it's as good as they say, and I received a great example. I just don't have much need for a fixed blade, so haven't used it much.just looked at the stats, and 6.5oz makes 'em a heavy folder, I am glad they met your expectations mate, nothing worse than when a new knife doesn't.
