Is there a reason that you practically never see a Scandi grind on a folder?

I browsed through Animal Gear's online knives, all 1100 of them, almost all of them folders. I saw two Scandi folders, both from Helle. That was it.

'
Real Steel also offers Scandi grind blades on some of their folders.
It is however true that scandi grind is seen as a bushcraft blade, and therefor more popular on fixed blades as oppose to folders.
Full flat grind slice much better than Scandi, whereas scandi will always be a tougher and more robust grind for the purposes of bushcraft etc.
Check out Morakniv knives for your scandi craving

Bought this from a guy on my way to the coast.. The guy was outa cash... He reckoned he paid over R2k but I doubt it somehow  so unsure whether I bought a dud or.. So I gave him R600
Any knowledge about the knife

Not sure if this is the one?  ::)

Nice collection Battlestar :thumleft: - I dig those Condor fixed blades. I have a few myself. They do make kick ass sheaths too.
I see you are a bit of a Spyderco fan
I like the variety in your collection.

699 indicative price sounds cheap - Not sure I believe the discounted price though.

I have actually thinned it out little over the years.

Yes I love Spyderco especially the Endura. It gets used extensively every day as does the Leatherman. The Condor knives are very good value for money. I had been looking for a decent bush craft knife and came across this Condor SBK. Was going to pull the trigger on a TOPS Brother of Bush Craft knife but couldnt justify the price tag. I can highly recommend the Knife Guy. He has some great brands at good prices and service is tip top.

I also have one of those knives with the fat tick on.
I think mine is a dud though, the blade is all bent and they only sharpened it on one side.

Spyderco? - Can you post a pic of it?

Yeah, paying over R150 is a rip off ; thatís what they cost at China Mall Midrand.

Not sure if you joked about the design of your Spydie, and if it is in actual fact bent. Either way - nice knife

So herd is my small and modest smartie box collection. Some with history and memories.
Pic 1- SAK Mountaineer.  Christmas present from my wife roughly 25 years ago.
Pic 2 - Also a Christmas gift from my wife when she worked at Toyota.  Drew blood the same day when I cut myself slicing biltong.
Pic 3 - Leatherman Kick purchased on the way from a Buff Rally about 12 years ago.
Pic 4 - SAK Forrester 111mm. Purchased from the Swiss Army Knife factory shop when on holiday in Switzerland in 2017.
Pic 5  - Opinel with carbon blade. Part of a birthday present.
Pic 6 - Honey Badger flipper. Carry it almost every day.
Pic 7 - Honey Badger  claw.
Pic 8 - 58mm SAK Rambler. Bought this one for its online Phillip's screwdriver which I often need. Lives in the money pocket of my jeans.
Pic 9 - SAK with USB. Gifted to me from a good friend

Pic 3 & 4 - I believe these are also cheapies from my daughter for various birthdays.
May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

These two are from my late father when we sorted out his cupboards after he passed away.
