Long story short: opening the Manly WASP with two hands is tedious compared to all one hand opening knives available but the pleasure to use such an agressive cutter worst it ! So let’s be short !
Slide #2: I have gently rounded the shoulder of the edge making it even thinner: no chipping or rolling. It tells a lot about the quality of the Bulgarian heat treatment !
Slide #3: The cutting action is absolutely accurate and it slips gently in any material it is confronted to. Peeling an apple is a child play. Also the hard plastic is no challenge for the thin hard WASP’s edge.
It is just fun to “test” that little folder on different chores !! What else ? It is not threatening so even sheeples can borrow it. Also the deep carry clip does wonder.
I have also noticed how the edge is resilient to the plate’s ceramic ! Repeated hard contact on the plate did not affect the sharpness: this is a first for me.
All in all the knife is slow in its opening with two hands but once ready to cut, it is a marvel ! It can bring a smile on your face when you see how easily it can separate matters. It is a keeper.
BTW mine seems to be the 2019 version with no contact between the blade and the spring when closed.
