    I'm less excited about the Tomahawk, as I have no practical use for one. A camp ax, yes, but not a Tactical ax.

    Kitchen knife info came from post #8 of this thread: http://spyderco.com/forums/showthrea...947#post715947

    For future reference, if you click the little blue box with the > that is next to Sal's name in the quote (or whoever's name is being quoted), it will take you directly to the original thread the quote comes from.

    Jabba I agree, thats why I really hope they give us two. One uber badass hatchet with a hammer back and super steel, and then whatever to the "tactical" type. Am I the only one that thinks a tactical hawk has very limited applications? and in most of those cases, wouldnt another tool work? I understand the military might have use for one, but what will people who dont knock doors down for a living do with it?

    Im super pumped about another caly 3 coming out! I felt the zdp 3.5 was inevitable!

    I absolutely agree, a camp ax should it be.
    But (much to my regret) I accept the Military use and all the voices of "ninjas" for a tactical ax.

    From what I remember reading they were thinking about making two different axes/tomahawks, one tactical/military and one more utility/camping oriented.

    Id say as long as there are enough of you that feel that way to make it worth spyderco's while, then yes it is, no one can say otherwise.

    Sal can you guys laminatE it with a different steel besides 420j2? I love the idea of this knife but that steel is so soft it instantly scratches. Could vg-10 be used to sandwich the zdp?

    isnt the vg10 damascus just a thin slice? I would really love it if someone figured out how to make a semi-decent pattern with it... Id call the current vg10 damascus pattern "white noise"

    I've been eyeing the caly 3 but if it gets made in cf and zdp I'm in for sure. I know its old news but I didn't see it. Definitely would be in for a lock back manix. I like my combo edge but a pe would be better.

    I think the only other clad steel that I've seen with ZDP-189 was ATS-34. How about that?

    I believe I read that the only reason they use a laminate zdp steel is because the factory that makes that knife can't handle straight zdp. Maybe if the factory has had some upgrades they would be able to pop out some carbon fiber pure zdp caly 3.5 knives?

    I do agree that the 420J2 laminate scratches up fast. I still use mine, but it looks nasty fast if you dont polish it once in a while.

    I think my first choices would be:
    1. Damascus blade
    2. straight zdp 189
    3. laminate with ats 34 if its an option
    4. straight vg-10
    5. any other laminate.
