To Rogue_Spear: I think you put your finger on it with "two equal knife fighters." I believe that most attackers do not want equal footing, and will drive home an assault with either greater numbers or an attack from the rear. In this case, the 'brain' is the really big weapon. I've never seen a duel; I've never seen a bouncer weigh both drunks, and measure their weaponry and award a 'handicap.' I have been the victim of an attempted mugging, two rookie teenagers with a hockey stick against one suburban old guy jogger--who they didn't know was a former motorcycle club member. There is even an argument for 'weaponry doesn't matter at all.' I am more impressed by the quality of workmanship in a Sifu than size alone. Think about this: a Gurkha Kukhri is traditionally made from the worn out leaf springs of cars and trucks, but it is bigger and heavier than a Sifu. Is the Sifu now the second best weapon?--OKG

I did some light customizing on it (beveling the G-10 scales more, putting serrations on the the handle and also, sharpening it more).
