    ^^^The Top can be sharpened an additional 2 inches or so before the fuller becomes an issue-(As both of these are) Believe the The Dagger Grind on the UF's is about 5 inches (No fuller), so technically NO, not a true Dagger Grind But as close as your going to get on a Shiv unless the fuller was lowered, but then it would not be a Shiv:thumbsup:
    Maybe saying a semi Daggerish Grind (The Top sharpened to 3 inches) would be a more accurate Representation:D

    Yeah, with that sharpened top clip, it's a real nasty, mean, bmf...........and even so without the top sharp, actually. Took me a month to recover from the stab wound to my foot, inflicted upon me by a real asshole (Bob was his name) who accidentally dropped it, it bounced on the butt up into the air and straight into my foot about 2" above my sole - and deep almost to bone.

    But we could have more of a sharpened clip like Nathan’s Shiv, which I believe @fonedork got in a trade for his Shiro.;)

    I just realized I still have a little juvenile humor left in me :D

    Indeed, at three inches, very much a little juvenile:p:D:eek::rolleyes:

    As a next knife I would like to see from CPK I want to put a few thoughts out as I see them.

    1. Nathan wants his knives to be used
    2. Most people here that buy them are collecting (nothing wrong with it as to each their own)
    3. In my view choppers are much nicer/expensive Ontario military machetes

    People keep asking for more choppers or daggers. The reality is they will be play toys that see some use in the backyard and that’s it. A knife that would see daily hard use from a large group of people would be a folder. Now ask 10 people what folder they like and you will get 11 answers. To keep on the trend of most usable it would need to be 3” or less in blade length and nothing flipper/ gravity/ Automatic.

    This gets you a knife that the highest group of people could and do use on a daily basis. As much as I would prefer to carry a fixed blade and hack through jungle vines daily I usually cut boxes, clip loose strings, and cut random items for the kids. I doubt I am far off from the vast majority of people.

    A <3” very slicey slipjoint with removable scales with a blade profile near the EDC would see daily use from myself. Nothing against locking knives I have and like them but a slipjoimt would be legal more places.

    *all opinions above right or wrong are my own

    0A559DFE-F159-4C7F-BCEA-9C4E2705749B.jpeg I would love a Carothers version of a thin slicey kitchen knife like this Japanese blade my dear mother-in-law bought me in Hong Kong, but with integral bolsters.

    At this point I just want the DEK1 to become available. Otherwise, a thin stock, slicy bird and trout knife with a dropped point or spear point.

    You had me at thin stock and slicey (I'm assuming D2 was a given;))
