    My opinion is it's your knife and you can do anything you want to do to it. In the end it is just a knife so have fun and if you feel the need to make changes or adjust it to suit your needs then have at it.

    My Buck 112lw (420hc) just out cut my Spyderco Delica 4 (VG10) - Is this a fluke?

    NO, they have been making knives like that for more than 100 years.

    My Buck 112lw (420hc) just out cut my Spyderco Delica 4 (VG10) - Is this a fluke?

    BUCK's really aren't that thin by the way. ;) They are .020" to .025" behind the edge... Somewhat normal for folders these days.... About the same as Spyderco and Cold Steel are these days. Some Spyderco's are even thinner than that....

    My Buck 112lw (420hc) just out cut my Spyderco Delica 4 (VG10) - Is this a fluke?

    I would say they aren't poorly ground at all, some are better than others however. Spyderco and Cold Steel are generally good as far as that goes. They have reasonable geometry and thickness behind the edge. As for the others I suppose you could call them and ask. 20 DPS is still the standard...

    My Buck 112lw (420hc) just out cut my Spyderco Delica 4 (VG10) - Is this a fluke?

    Yeah, I dunno how many times I have to keep saying it. Compared to the other knives I tested using the same edge geometry as all the other ones it performs like 420HC should. ;) Doesn't matter what the edge geometry is as long as the knives tested are all the same. The steels will still...

    My Buck 112lw (420hc) just out cut my Spyderco Delica 4 (VG10) - Is this a fluke?

    It's the geometry they put on the blades that makes the difference. Take one blade and put the same edge on it as another blade they would perform the same. I have done it myself and tested them, it's 420HC... Put the standard 15 DPS edge bevel on it. It performs like 420HC is supposed to. Same...
