The Raven & Recurve are very similar in size, but the Recurve is considerably lighter and more pocket friendly, and the 'clipped' blade shape is a bit more useful by having a more pronounced point than the spearpointed Raven, the lighter and slimmer Recurve does not give anything up to the Raven in the cutting stakes.
Poor photo, and I will try and get some better side by side shots tomorrow, hope this helps.
