    The Insingo felt better for me. The swedge helped for getting in and rocking the edge through, and the constant radius of curvature of the edge made long rocking draws more feasible.

    I find the Insingo is, because the tip of an Insingo blade is very thin.

    Alright. Round 12.

    The can had a pull ring but to hell with that.

    Some scuffing on the dark etch but no actual scarring to the blade.

    You are down the rabbit hole now. No turning back. As that knife ages, and gets a patina on the slabs AND the blade, it will start to become something that is truly personal to you.

    Hope I’m not encouraging regrettable behaviour, but good on you for letting that knife live a full life.
