Again this is all made with my smartphone as I’m far from any computer.
A folding dagger as beautifully designed and made is not a bushcraft knife.
But my very first modern folder back in 1993 has been a Gerber Applegate folding dagger.
The first models were made in a stainless steel close to 420Hc.
The Euroedge is made of S30V.
Cutting wood with it is like making chop sticks with a bastard sword: it was not designed for that. The Euroedge is like a weapon a Templar will keep at hand. The blade is massive and the stock is thick.
The handle is so well made G10 feels like carbon fibers.
It is one of the most beautiful Spyderco ever made and a real tour de force in pure hommage to ancient times.
“”I can do anything”, Ed Schempp, will push the envelope, often just to see if he can. I did a “hammer” in at Ed’s house. Just a bunch of knife afi’s with great skill working on a globe. But no hammers. Ed designed and built a series of miniature rolling mills so we can produce mosaic
Damascus pieces, each with an assignment. Ed’s my “go to” guy for Ethnic series knives. Take a design hundreds, or even thousands of year old, capture the purpose and function and re-create that in a modern folder. He studies the design, the history, function and purpose before beginning. Those of you that have studied and used Ed’s designs know what I’m talking about. True original classics, each and every one.”
