That's an outstanding grind on that one!
I just found one. In one week, she'll be coming to PA. Thanks.
Yeah he grinds them thin.
Has anyone else gathered experience with a modified edge Nilakka? I just love the design but am afraid of ordering one because at the least it should have to be able to cut food on a hardwood board.
My factory second with the factory secondary bevel drew admiration from everyone who watched me cutting up summer sausage at Christmas. It will handle cutting on a hardwood board, or cutting the board itself if need be.
Are all the ones with a secondary bevel factory seconds?
No, mine was a second because the tip was chipped.
Hey I wanted to chime back in that I have been using this knife a lot and with the modified edge no problems.
It looks like these are shipping again. Guess they modified them. I have an original and I've thickened the edge a bit. I use it for light duty only. It's a slicing machine.
What's the consensus on the modified Spyderco Nilakka folder? Good to go? Any reservations and/or caveats?
I just bought a modified Nilakka a week ago and I can confirm you are good to go. The edge is holding up great and I've experienced no problems like others have with the initial release. GO FOR IT! I LOVE mine.
Good to know. Thank you for the feedback.
and I can say the same...no issues here and mine has been put to use outdoors as well as in the kitchen.
Love the looks of it and the fit & finish are the usual superb quality from Taichung. However, as for using it and possibly adding another bevel... May just become a collector one for me. Decisions!
Also, read about all the good and bad points at The Edge Observer: Spyderco Nilakka from April 2013 after the modifications.
Could you, or someone else with the modified nilakka show a picture of the edge? I want to see it to get an idea about what angle it is.
here are my thoughts: it's the best pushcutter on hard wood in my collection. No warp or chipping edge on bambu, plastic or walnut.
Question: How would I know if I'm getting a second generation / modified Spyderco Nilakka folder?
Buy it from an authorized dealer. IIRC, they recalled them to fix the edge.
RamZar, you should be able to see the secondary bevel with a loupe. If you DO happen to get one that still has the zero grind, Spyderco will take care of it for you.
I bought it when it was first released and mine was zero ground. I put a secondary bevel on it. No big deal if you sharpen your own knives.
