    My baklash and Plethiros are really slicey. So is my amalgam. Those are probably my thinnest bte knives. All my spydercos cut well though, and my ZT 0095bw is surprisingly very slicey as well! Thin stock, high grind... Its really nice.

    470 is great as well after a reprofile. And great ergos and pretty light. 456cf is surprisingly slicey as well for such thick stock.

    This is a really easy knife to get attached to. Those Texans design and Spyderco makes good knives.

    The Buck Vantage is a pretty great slicer. Also, the WE knife Roxi and Kizer Envoy come to mind. Spyderco mantra does too. Just to throw some others into the mix.

    The ‘edge’ goes to the Advocate.

    That definitely goes to my Cheburkov Scout - it is a ridiculous slicing machine. The distil taper is insane.

    I have several Hinderer & ZT flippers, but I don't consider any of them particularly good slicers. The best slicers of all my flippers would be my two Laconico Keens.

    Keen's are great slicers indeed, right there with my F95NL in fact.

    Still kicking myself for not grabbing an Advocate when they were disco'd and priced at $150.

    This is a relatively unknown one, but the Something Obscene Company J-Cape V3 is the best I know of. While it does use 4mm thick stock, I measured mine out to be about .015" thick behind the edge in the hollow ground section, and it's got a very deep and high hollow grind. The ratio of grind height to stock thickness is kind of like that of a good FFG Spyderco, as an example of the primary blade geometry. It cuts and separates anything I've tried with ease, either in the kitchen or for EDC.

    Many WE-produced knives nowadays are similar (and some have .095" blade stock, like the Rectifier), which is a wonderful thing.

    Agree with the comments regarding the Advocate. I continue to be damn impressed with this knife, particularly at the discounted price which makes it a steal. It broke me of my "no more flipper framelocks" rule.

    Was going to come into the thread and say my Mantra 1... then y'all somehow talked me into getting an Advocate before they were gone... So, I guess I will keep you posted here in a couple days :D
