I don't like tanto's, at all, I just happen to like recurve's less and between the two, for this particular knife, I take the lesser of the two evil's as my personal choice.
I also try not to take shots at people on internet chat forums. I can more then hold my own when it comes to sharpening, have a look threw my recent post history for some examples of my freehand work... Obviously tho because I make a stupid remark about certain shape of blade it must mean I'm not capable of sharpening a knife. :thumbdn:
WOW CK, your wound to tight my friend, also I wasn't taking a shot at you either. The sharpening comment was just that---if sharpening isn't an issue then a recurve won't cause one problems. Many have raised the question with recurves being difficult to sharpen or not. Please notice my wink smiley face emoticon---I put it there as it's meant to lessen the comment to fall into the "not so serious" category.
I took your "Because no one likes recurves anyway" comment light hearted. I figured you wern't to serious as the Blur and the 710 seem to have done fairly well in the market with their recurve blade.
If you took offense I wish you wouldn't have as I see you contribute to this forum in a positive manner as I myself do. Just given spydercobenchmadekai another option.
I feel the same way as you but opposite about blade shapes. First choice isn't a recurve but Tanto's are even lower on the "like" ladder.
Take it easy man, we can be friends and like different style knives. The common bond are the knives themselves .
