After thinking about this design for awhile I decided the original just had an appeal that I did not quite capture in the slightly larger blade. I profiled the original in 5160 and am considering 2 more in .100 thick 52100. I am excited about the 52100 b/c at that thickness I should be able to cleanly slice soft woods as thick as 3 or 4 inch diameters. I was watching Andrew Zimmerman on Bizarre foods. He was with a guide on an uninhabited island in south pacific I believe. This guy had a thin sharp machete he was slicing through drinking vines with. I figured .... Why not put that edge geometry on the Vendetta? Its gonna be a BEAST.
