I was just wondering if anyone noticed this too, but I just realized that the wood saw on the Vic's with liner locks (e.g. Trekker, Forester, Trailmaster, Soldier) is thinner than the ones from the Vic's with slide locks (e.g. Hunter, Hercules). Did anyone notice this? And does anyone have any good explanation why the supposed-to-be more robust kinves (the ones with liner locks) have thinner wood saws?
I guess it just doesn't make sense to me because in terms of the knife blade itself, the liner locks seems to have the thicker profile, specially at the tang area, as compared to the ones with the slide lock... but then they have the thinner wood saws.
Can anyone explain?
