    I forgot this thread existed.

    Wasn't the Leaf a Sumerian pattern? I would have to look it up.

    It could be confusing because leaf shaped blades are still made in the old double edge format. They are just not common.

    I am fairly certain you are correct that they are the originators of that design, albeit with their swords. I do not know of any other common manufacturers who use the design, despite how sleek it is (IMHO).

    It really is a shame that it has lost popularity... Outside of Spyderco of course.

    Oh dear me... Those are pretty.
    Now that I think of it, the leaf-blade is more commonly employed in throwing knives now. Forgot about that

    But those 2 are gorgeous. Wish I had that one on top!

    SNAFU

    If it wasn't in there; it are now.
    Something about that leaf design, not sure what.

    Look it up.
