I think they should be more focused the their roots. I live in PA and it bothers me the case puts so many knives out yet the quality is sub par to GEC. I dont usually post like this but it bothers me. If you want to sell knives make them like you used to.
I've got BAD O.A. in both my hands. After carrying slipjoints for 60+ years It has become very difficult to access/open some of them. I recently got a Delica, my first "modern" knife. I'm a died in the wool traditional guy but this thing is much easier to access and use. Ya do what ya gotta do!==KVNothing I'd be interested in.
Pocket clips cause hotspots when gripping.
I have no need for one hand opening.
I don't need assisted opening ... yet, anyway.
If I ever develope arthritis in my hands, that might change, but there is no family history of it.
Rather surprising, actually, since on the maternal side there is a history of M.H.E. (I'm 4th generation to have it.)
(M.H.E. = "Multiple Hereditary Extosies" formerly known as "Osteochondromatosis")
