Hi there guys. Hopefully everyone had a Merry Christmas or happy holiday of the like. I was wondering what everyone places as a higher value in determining a knife purchase; blade shape or blade length? I know for collecting's sake, this may not be relavent, but for day to day carry, is it a factor to you? For me, I have always looked at a knife with a sub-3" blade before I looked at any other features, thereby eliminating a large number of knives immediately. It was only recently I bought a knife out of this "small" blade category; a SS Mariner and I must say I am now changing my view of bigger knives to the point where I am starting to entertain some "bigger" knives as not only purchases, but for EDC. Now that said, I was always looking a what I would consider "stout" blade shapes for work purposes. The long-time knife of choice for me was a Spur. I still think this knife defines what a compact working knife can be. But comparing it to the Mariner or my D'Allara, it somehow now seems to fall "short" Back to the question; size or shape first? Any thoughts?
