I too prefer a beer bellied blade... Main reason I no longer have a Spyderco Police... Nice knife - but you ended up using only the very tip... If your doing that - why do you need a long bladed knife?
The AFCK, Ascent, Endura, Delica, Wayne Goddard Lightweight, Pro-Venator, Military Model, and the Native are all favorites...
Least favorites... Hawkbill blades - like the Harpy... Oh, well yeah If yor on a fishing boat all day and are doing a lot of heavy net cutting maybe... Or looking to slit some throats... But for actual WORK... You need a curve.
Curves are VERY SHAGADELIC, Baby!
