    Hah!

    So is it an Asp or a Wasp? What's the difference?! I thought the Wasp blade a straighter lines.

    Also, no one has mentioned the Hunter, but I think that one is a beauty as well! I got to hold @thurin's Hunter, and I was impressed. :thumbsup:

    Clear as day when side by side for sure! I think I've only ever seen the Wasps that were swedged with a straight 'edge'. Don't see that pattern very often either way. Cool! Thanks.

    And the Sneaky is 'deeper' and a bit longer, correct?

    I've got a hunter in bloodwood. It's a good fit for me. Stunning and nice balance. (second from top). The hunter in this sale thread is a beauty for sure!

    Nice bloodwood collection man! I was surprised by the Hunter, it isn't as big as it looks in pictures. Feels great in hand.
