Extrema Ratio




I recently had 2 of these, the Nemesis and the Combat Folder (MCR??). Very heavy, sharpened "chisel" blade knives (very thick ie 1/4 inch). Must say that I was very impressed with the heavy duty nature of these things. I suspect them the toughest knives I've seen. They pretty much make other makes seem "poseurs" as to lock up and potential heavy duty use. Priced at several times the cost of Spydercos, Benchmade etc. Some cost way more than even Chris Reeves Sebanza folders, which is to say a LOT. Just thought I'd pass my impressions along. If you have a lot of money, and you want TOUGH, I suspect you would like the Extrema Ratio line a lot. I generally feel a thinner blade cuts better and is overall handier. But if you had to dig a fox hole, or chisel your way out of prison through a concrete wall, with a folder your only tool. The Extrema's might be the one you want.
Heavy duty does not describe these folders.
