Got this Ploestar at SFO yesterday. I think it is the most unappreciated Sal Glesser design and for the refinements and steel involved it is more than worth the slight increase over, for example, the Tenacious and similar Byrd knives. Functionally, it’s as good as your average PM2 I would say.
My guess is that if it had different G10, a slightly different blade shape, similar to Lance’s modification, and a different name, it would be more appreciated than it is. But, and I say this knowing I will be flamed by some, subtlety is unappreciated by a few. I’m not a master of it by any definition, but age as forced a certain amount on me.
