Great feedback and pictures so far - thank you all!
I probably could have chosen a better title for this thread ..... maybe something along the lines of "My ideal blade combo." I don't know if any manufacturer would find it worthwhile (profitable) to produce a knife like this or not, but certainly GEC at least has shown a willingness to think outside the box. Think "boot knife".
As mentioned, it doesn't seem like it would take much to tweak one of their existing patterns and come up with a two bladed knife that has a main clip blade and a shorter, straight secondary. We could talk all day about turkish clip vs. regular clip, sheepsfoot vs. wharncliffe vs. coping, nail nicks both on the mark side vs. opposing sides, etc., but my main point is the clip and shorter straight edge blade combo.
Just to be clear, I already have a Conductor with the coping blade secondary, but in this thread I'm thinking more along the lines of a 3 1/2" jack knife.
Duncan, to me there's not THAT much difference between a sheepsfoot and a wharncliffe, but a world of difference between them and a spey blade. YMMV.
