    My waved Delica needed a little TLC. Now the edge is up to snuff; I've been carrying it for the last couple of days.

    I'm finally off for the holidays. This is the first chance I've had to shoot the new Kershaw fixie, which arrived about two weeks ago (if memory serves).

    I love the look of that thing! How thick is the blade behind the edge? Wondering because it looks like that would make a great leatherwork knife for me, I don't have a sheepsfoot blade on anything currently.

    I'll try to shoot some different angles tomorrow so you can judge for yourself. It's pretty thin behind the edge and curves outward noticeably around the last 30% before the flats. I'm guessing it would serve well for precise, shallow cuts.

    That's what I was thinking, thanks! I'm trying to search the internet to find out if it's really D2 or one of the chinese Mov steels which don't really hold an edge. It's an easy enough test, D2 will patina. :)

    That's it. Comparisons with the flipper are forthcoming. :)

    I found the new Skylines online about an hour ago. I think I may have a new knife arrive in the mail soon.
    I'll have to dig out the older fixed blade Skylines I picked up a few years ago and compare blade length.

    Sent from the Bayou Bunker Command Center, Portable Unit #33, FEMA Region 6.

    The flipper blade is Sandvik, the fixed blade is of CPM-S30V.

    Length and width of the blades appear to be identical,though the fixed blade stock looks positively massive alongside the flipper. I don't have calipers, so I can't ascertain the thickness. The overall weight balance on the fixie is still pretty good, and I do find the extra heft reassuring. :cool:

    While the handle profiles are remarkably similar, the scales on the fixed version have been trimmed back to expose the tang (and lanyard hole) all around.

    Finally, the forward part of the flipper scale is extended along the spine, apparently to accommodate the blade-stops.

    Hope that answers some questions.

    My wife baked these light and crunchy granola cookies--and added chocolate chips. :)
