    I just did an Ebay search for "Spyderco Paramilitary" and limited the results to sold items. There are several sellers who seem to be moving a suspicious amount of volume considering the limited...

    I can't speak to the Seto knives, but a while ago I was looking around for something to use as a plain edged steak knife. I settled on a pair of carbon Opinel paring knives. I prefer the way they cut...

    Lol, never thought I would feel inadequate because my knives aren't small enough...

    The best I could do is a SAK Cadet. I also have a couple of Classics somewhere around here, but they are my...

    Thanks. I didn't check to see if it was rated waterproof, lol.

    I actually bought the LD-01 for my wife a couple of years ago, my mistake (or brilliance :D) was buying the combo pack that came with...

    A little away from the current discussion, but I pulled some jeans out of my dresser yesterday and my LD-01 was clipped to the pocket. It appears that it was missed and went for a ride through the...

    I am no expert, so just going on what I can find with a few minutes of Google-fu. Here is another chart which shows different relative values:

    I get that, and I bought the Herder solely for the geometry because I had never used anything like it. (I do like the handle too though.)

    I hope I can find something similar and readily available,...

    I did, but like I just said it isn't easy to separate the garbage from the quality based on the brief descriptions given for these knives and I don't really want to buy a dozen to find a couple of...

    Awesome! It should be really easy to post an example then. I would really appreciate it, as I am finding it difficult to identify which ones out there are zero ground, relatively hard, and generally...

    Well said, Laethageal. That is the essence of my confusion here as well. I know Ankerson and Cliff have their disagreements, but I thought he would be enthusiastic about the geometry on this knife.

    :confused:

    You can certainly buy $4 and under paring knives at the grocery store, and I have, but I can hardly believe you of all people would be arguing that the two are equivalent, lol.

    Maybe...

    Reread the thread, I probably should have done that earlier, lol.

    I guess you are mostly saying the market is too limited? I guess I can see that. I still think this particular paring knife is...

    As someone who frequently has blades reground and clearly appreciates the importance of geometry, I am curious why you would say this?

    As noted above and as I have just discovered myself, even...

    I was able to pick up one of these Robert Herder "Windmuehlenmesser" paring knives last week from a US distributor. I want to thank Cliff for sharing his experience with them. He noted earlier in the...

    Oh, it's on now :)

    Unfortunately, the festival doesn't open until Aug 30th, but I need some turkey legs this year. It's about time for my boy to see some medieval jousting as well.

    I've been to that Renaissance Festival many times as well. Those turkey legs are worth the price of admission all by themselves, imo.

    It's also great fun to slide a $20 to the Professional...

    It is a bit thick behind the edge, but it is marketed as a general use outdoors knife. I may thin mine out eventually, but I am still pleased with it as-is. Very fond of mine overall, favorite handle...

    Bought a pair of Opinel paring knives a few months ago for under $20. We have been using them as steak knives. They take a beating on the ceramic plates, but are also simple to resharpen. I like...

    Very interesting concept. A ditched my wallet about ten years ago, but I might pick up a couple of things from them just to check out.
