Had a Ridge line Monsoon smock, but sent it back after the first stalking trip, the material just does not breath, highly overrated IMHO
I don't know if they have upped their game recently, but they need to.
I am surprised at 2 things here, the handle design, and the fact that they have gone with S30V steel on a scandi grind knife after what happened with the Nilakka.
I would like to be proved wrong on the handle front, it may well be more comfortable, and practical than it looks.
Reading this thread literally sickens me to the core.
As an owner of 2 ex track dogs I cannot begin to imagine what the guy must be going through, it is just terrible.
And as for the perpetrators.........................
It is difficult to establish from this poor screenshot, but the edge looks fairly rounded, so it is possibly a sabre grind with a convexed secondary, there is no way that this is a Scandi grind IMHO
If this were on it's way to me, and the factory edge was acceptable, I would just use it until it needed sharpening and then reprofile the edge to convex.
Do you know what the steel is?
If you are lucky enough for it to be the newer version, the steel will be 80CrV2, which will lend itself...
And professionally modelled by yours truly ;)
Hi Tommy, thanks, Phil's knives are unique IMO, and he grinds all his blades full flat with a pronounced distal taper, and to an extremely thin edge which is easy to maintain because very little metal needs to be removed when it needs to be touched up.
I use the 'little and often' approach with...
Glad I'm not the only one!!
Just been out in mine again for a brisk half hour walk with the dogs in a howling gale and quite rainy.
Was wearing a cheapo Aldi merino vest and cotton tee shirt underneath, and was totally warm and dry when I got back.
