Or really, any knife out there?
Holy chit. This knife is amazing. I've been a Delica fan for a couple years now. It was the Spyderco that made me addicted and a lifelong loyalist and recommendationist (probably not a word) to anything and everything Spyderco. But this SB...THIS SB version is simply amazing. I don't know what it is. I opened the box, took it out of that little bubble wrap and was blown away by the handle color.
THAT HANDLE COLOR. I had this smirk on my face when I saw it. It is dare I say...breathtaking? To me at least. First cuts on some paper, I had a face of disgust (good disgust) as to how sharp it was. Opened up a package next and it sliced through that tape like butter. I cut up some mango, kiwi, strawberries, tomatoes and an avocado. Wow. The patina...THE PATINA. I love the look of the patina on the sandwiched SB.
I've read so many recommendations out there saying the Caly 3/3.5 is better. Better ergos, better craftsmanship, better everything. I don't get it. I don't know, maybe I'm a rebel. Maybe I'm weird. Maybe it's the handle color. Maybe it's the fact that this was made the same month of my birthday (not that I really care about my birthday). Who knows? All I know is I prefer this over the Caly 3/3.5 and in all actuality, everything. I have a Caly 3 in ZDP and in SB, but I prefer the Delica. I think the sandwiched SB is cool and unique. IMO, it destroys any worry about rust on the pivot (with proper cleaning and lubrication of course).
For poops and gigs, here is a crappy pic of my little buddy:
Anyway, does anyone want to be a rebel and weird with me?
