Jim great test and thats a lot of rope! Looking at the pictures its just a curious point really but is the Spyderco like significantly older than the BM? I know you haven't had the BM long. The reason I ask is because of what we talked of earlier. I wonder how much of the 'perceived effort' is due to the Spyderco being sharpened down so because it appears in the pictures that the edge is a bit more obtuse than the new fresh out of the box BM.
The results may be closer to each other than realized due to the more obtuse edge of the Spydie. Still though it sounds like the M390 is a top contender. Thanks for all the blisters!
By the way, forgive me if I've just brought up something already asked and answered. Guilty of not reading all posts as usual here.
It's not that old, I got it in July this year.
It has seen a ton of testing and reprofiling, sharpening etc, I thinned out the edge to minus -9 degrees per side and then had to put a 15 degrees per side micro bevel on it.
One day I need to really thin it out again, but for now it still cuts very well.
