Re: Just the brown SM flats

Just finishing up reprofiling my S30V PM2 using the 30 degree settings with the CBN stones. Still working at that chip/roll over from that screw head but the rest of the bevel looks great and even. Creating a microbevel is really THAT easy?? Simply switch back to the 40 degree setting, a few light p...

Definitely the one thing I miss about selling this knife. Such a great and underrated steel.

Re: Just the brown SM flats

The sharpie helps to see what's going on, especially if grinds are uneven. Good to do if you're having trouble. Absolutely! Doing that right now with a PM2 that I rolled the edge on a screw a few days ago. I always thought the grind was very even while doing touch ups. Come to find out, while repro...

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

nobody cares about this one i guess??? lol Looks like they had ~700 in stock at 12:07 PM EST. I was a few minutes late logging on so I didn't see how many they started with. I did not buy one. Not really a PM2 fan. I'd buy a Manix LW or Native LW in this combo in a heartbeat though! I wonder if the...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

I don't really sharpen them, but I'll give them a couple passes on the UF stones and the strop. They don't really NEED it most of the time, but I just like to I guess.

Re: Factory edge poll

I thought it was funny people were posting factory edged knives to the show your users thread. Seems I triggered a few folks by pointing that out. I'll never understand why a couple of you guys act like those who don't use their knives as you do are inferior. Must be an ego thing I guess I made a s...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Depending how often or hard you use your knives, I find the polished edge to be pointless to try and maintain. That's a lot of work to get there, just to get easily scuffed up. If it's just a display knife or pocket jewelry then I could see the appeal. Thing is, at least for me, if I'm going to tak...

Re: Golden, CO made Wish List?

I would be quite content with a Native or Manix in Rex45, G10 or LW... ain't care!! I've never owned a Native, this is what I'm holding out for!

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Spyderco "medium" is quite fine in reality, and leaves a good uniform scratch pattern that isn't overly aggressive. Outlandish sharpness can be attained off the brown rods/stone. But it has slightly more tooth (of course) than the fine and ultrafine rods/stone. It's an excellent all around finish f...

Re: Factory edge poll

I have enough that I rotate regularly and really don't need to reprofile, just daily touch up...for now. I have reprofiled my BBS Para 3 to 15dps and am now doing the same with my OD Green S30V PM2 as we speak...which is going much quicker than that M390! Cut through some plastic strapping the other...
