    I'm on the hunt for a blade with a tip fine enough for detail work but thick enough to do light to medium prying (i know you aren't supposed to do that but seriously I think most of us still do).

    anyone find a blade that can do it all? and what do you think is the ideal blade shape for filling multiple roles?

    reverse tanto's seem like they would be good for that but I haven't had the opportunity to find out for myself

    I suggest you get a mini-prybar from county comm or some such and save the knife for cutting.

    But if you insist on getting a sharpened prybar then the Kershaw Brawler does well enough, Cheap and dependable.

    I really like the tip on the Benchmade 940. That knife holds its spine thickness a long way down the blade, enough that it's thicker than a lot of knives, but it's still nice and pointy :D. Here it is next to a Manix 2 XL (sorry about the quality--hard for me to get a picture of the spines):


    edit: here's a better one with the 940 next to the 710:
