    Wood Splitter,

    Purposeful change. Many states have laws against double edged knives. The sharpened swedge falls into that category. So we don't sharpen the swedge except for US Military Contract knives.
    It's easy to sharpen the swedge if you so desire.
    Hope this helps.

    Case in point: Spyderco's Taichung, Taiwan models, many of which are made from titanium or carbon fiber, S30V are extremely well built and very good mid-level or high end production knives. They are also very good sellers, I mean they keep making knives there using the high end materials, so......

    Hello Toooj. My question regards the Chimera, and whether there are any plans to redesign the tang and pommel system to be stronger, and more accurate to its marketing as a hard-use knife. I am aware that he was flagrantly abusing the knife, but seeing as the Chimera commands a nearly $100 price tag, I believe Mayor Fuglycool's Chimera should not have broken the way it did. (Certainly previous tests may have compromised the integrity of the tool, but the pommel did snap off, ultimately, while doing something it was marketed to be able to do, bashing/crushing.)

    I love my SP2 pilot knife, and have total faith in its relatively wider, much better-designed stick tang compared to most Ka-Bars. (I also don't abuse my knives.) But the design of the Chimera's D2 pommel fitting seems to me like a glaring structural flaw. This is a shame as it's one of the coolest looking knives I've ever seen, I love beefy overbuilt hardware, and overall I really do want to like, and own, a Chimera.

    Thanks for reading.

    GIRLYmann,

    I did find the book with the drawings. I will see about posting...it maybe confidential. If it is, I'll just post about the pattern shapes.

    oinker,

    I will view the video and let you know.
    Hope this helps.

    :)
    It is a few days since I bought the karambit ontario ranger from (official dealer 150 €) ergonomics and dimensions of this knife they are fantastic I will buy a second soon, but I want to know why the factory sharpening is not razor-sharp for me it is not a problem but given the enormous thickness of the blade and the type of 5160 steel it is tiring to perform a razor sharpening :)
