    I understand that the Alpha Beast is designed for flipping first and foremost. But has the blade changed any since the first design?

    I only have the first iteration and it does fine for cutting tasks, but is not ideal. The weight to size is perfect for me however. Just wondering if the newest Alpha Beast is a better EDC knife.

    What? Some people like to play with their utility knives :ropeman:

    thats like someone saying they hate the prius without stating facts to why they hate the prius.

    I dont like the prius because it is too small for me. Even when I pull the seat back all the way and recline the seat I feel as if I just barely fit. Plus if anyone is in a taller car behind you their lights can be unpleasant.


    But seriously, dont get me wrong. I like my alpha beast. The blade stock is just thicker than I would want on an edc knife. I know that there are balancing issues and that the alpha beast cannot and should not have as thin a blade as something like a ffg spyderco delica. I know that it needs to be strong to withstand the abuses of flipping and dropping. I also know that I am trying to have my cake and fuck it too.

    I was just wondering if the latest version was a better slicer than the previous ones.

    ohhhhhh

    if you want a thin blade you gota go with a benchmade, the 51 is really thin. The replicant has a slightly thinner blade than the AB but not by much.

    i hate prius' too:manganr:

    For the record the blade is the exact same on all three models
    with the exception that the 3.0 has bigger pivot holes for the larger
    hardware, but obviously that doesn't affect cutting performance.
