The Enzo D2 and IIRC the stainless have been known to chip when zero-ground, but strictly speaking the Enzos are not meant to be zero ground. My carbon Enzo came with a secondary microbevel which I've kept, and I've had no chipping whatsoever. D2 is a poor steel for zero-ground scandi.

Don't want to bust Josh's thread but D2 is a nightmare with chipping, I have had an enzo D2 chip aswell but thats more to do with the steel rather than the knife , never had that problem with the O1 or ss versions.
And as Eraaij says, get the blade, make your own knife..perfect solution.

id agree, D2 chips like hell, even with a microbevel... Put a zero grind on D2 and its gonna chip under normal use....

o1 is a far superiour steel IMO, edge retention isnt everything.

the steel that the kellam uses is very tough .8% high carbon, ive never had any problems with it under hard use..

yeah the differential temp wouldn't have helped. I was carving rainforest wood, which is pretty soft. Think I'll put the secondary bevel back on. It carves amazingly without it, but I'd prefer it to be a little more resilient.

The Wolverine is a nice little knife, I remember looking at them when they originally hit these shores.

The Lauri PT and PTX blades are very good so the make your own idea is a valid one.

One thing that I don't understand is why nobody (until now) has mentioned Brusletto, I have one that has never chipped, it's been all around the world, I've owned since 1991 (I bought it in Dover) and never had a problem with it, the steel is 12c27 so highly resistant to rust and holds an edge as well as any other knife that I own, including custom knives.

Have a look at the troll and the granbit

Another option is to stick with the Mora, but move onto something like the Mora Classic or the Mora Classic Original. The No'1 is a good little knife.

I just bought a Wolverine new from evilbay USA for £66.08.
I will have to wait a few weeks for it though (USPS First Class Mail International!).
Just got to tell my other half now :eek:

You did indeed, they are very underrated knives, but I love mine to bits, I was just thinking it's older than Josh:eek:.

Brustletto are indeed nice knives, and the steel is great too... One thing i had a problem with on my Balder was the Grinds are slighty out and acute, but theyre solid and i far prefer them to helle's.

Stuart the Mod, used to be Mr Kellam UK IIRC so he'd probably the man to talk to if you hadn't managed to find one.
For that sort of money you could buy a custom pukko or a selection of very nice blades to make your own.

Yes, he was dressing up for the boreal forest a couple of weeks ago.
Although he'd probably need the same kit for any UK forest at the moment.

i'm fairly sure that i brought the last kellam wolverine that stuart the mod had for sale, i got one of the ones with numbered blades (124 i think, i'm not home at the moment so can't check). at the time when i got it from him he only had the one left and that only because the point of the blade had been broken off so he'd been unable to sell it, it actually took a little while to convince stuart to part with it.
took me a long evening to re-shape the point of the blade, i don't recall removing a secondary bevel at all but it certainly doesn't have one now. lovely knife in my opinion, good enough for me to give away my fallknivenF1. i'd definately recommend one.

cheers

Nice one, im looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the knife :)

A short review.

I have given the knife a good 'testing' over the last week.
I compared it against a stainless steel Clipper and a brand new carbon Mora 740.

My choice would be:

1st - The Wolverine a clearly quality knife with an impressively razor sharp edge. It is now my favourite knife.
2nd - The Mora 740, a close second, especially at its low price. The Mora is like an old girlfriend, good while it lasted but sometimes you need to upgrade. :goodnight:
3rd - The stainless steel Clipper another good knife for the money.

In conclusion it is true what I've heard said by a few others.

Start with a Mora (a great knife for the money). Look at a few other more expensive knives, buy one, and end up carrying two knives. :rolleyes:
