I never did like the idea of a tanto point. seems to me the angled part would get rounded off with wear, or too easily chipped off if you hit something hard. on the plus side it must be way easier to sharpen the straight edges consistently, and much faster too, compared to carefully rounding the curve on a clip point.
not worried about a strong tip. would rather have the fine tip of the clip point for fine work anyway.
got some opinions?
