Well, I was just curious, I've tried out his slicer grind and spanto and there is a pretty big difference in performance between the two. Next on the list is his Bowie grind then I will probably buy a knife with a Harpoon grind... I'm hoping gen 7 will add traction (like the half-track) on the TI side of the XM-18 or G10 inserts.Hmmm... it looks cool alright.
Trying to think of why I'd need a grind that-a-way, but coming up empty.
Don't let that dissuade you though... I've got boxes of impractical knives that I think are awesome.
If "It looks cool" is the only metric of the knife you buy, well then it's YOUR metric, and you don't have to justify it to anyone ('Cept the wife)
Advantages? I can't see any, but maybe if you e-mail Rick you'll get a list of advantages you can cite to the wife during your argument.
