Interesting. I like what you did there. Only other considerations for me would be lateral strength and impact resistance. I tried to baton through some easy pine with a Bark River in A2 and the edge folded in several places.

I know I will probably never need to use my knife to pry open a car door, but it's nice to know I CAN if needed. For me, that's where the RMD really shines--especially once you thin and convex the edge a bit.

No clue how the F1 would hold up to prying and/or batoning, or the 511MO for that matter, but I do have confidence in the RMD.

There is a Wealth of information here, so after reading it again for the umpteenth time I just went ahead and made it a sticky.

It it not only a test of specific knife types, but blade profiles, handles, balance and feel, what is now called ergonomics. This test and the one linked to in the thread will help all of us as we refine our search for the perfect knife for the task or tasks we want to accomplish.

Good idea, Randy. This one definitely deserves to be a sticky.
