Havnt been on here in awhile but I have a couple questions . I told my Co worker to pick up an atlantic salt for work . We are local 40 structural ironworkers in nyc. We mostly cut inch thick pieces of manilla rope for tag lines . I thought a full se blade be good for him being he doesn't know how to sharpen . Well time came for his blade to be sharpened so I took it home today with me on a rain day . First question , when did they put the cut out in the frn ? I'm guessing to reduce weight but it's a liner less frn handle is that necessary to reduce weight on an already light knife or did he grab a fake ? Second, he had rolled the front tooth over. When I tried to strop it back it just broke off . I thought h1 was a soft steel so that suprised me . Is it just that the edge is harder on a work hardened steel ? Basically did my boy get a fake or am I over paranoid with the rash of fakes out there .
