Yojimbo and Friends: sort of OT
I have a blue Yojimbo, and I LOVE this little blade. Everytime that I read or think about Doc Snubnose's cutting tests or Michael Janich's comments on the cutting prowess of the Wharncliff blade, I kick myself for not purchasing another Yojimbo when they were available.
That said, my thoughts are that if I cannot get my hands on another Yojimbo reasonably easily (most all places I've checked they are sold out), then perhaps another well made wharncliff design will fit the bill nicely. What matters most in my next Wharncliff purchase will be that its cutting potential at least approaches that of the exhalted Yojimbo, so I've considered the following knives to 'substitute' for the Yojimbo:
1. Centofante IV
2. Benchmade Gravitator
3. Spyderco Adventura (not a Wharnie, but a cutting powerhouse)
- Is the Centofante IV as 'stabby' worthy as the Yojimbo?
- Can anyone vouch for or against the Benchmade Gravitator?
I know there are some in the forums here who do not like Benchmade for various reasons. That said, I own only one Benchmade (a mini-grip), and it's not a liner lock. So I wonder how reliable the Benchmade liner is on their Gravitator, and how well the Wharncliff on this one might cut.
Any other suggestions on a worth Wharncliff would be appreciated.
