Re: what stones to use for my sharp maker

Yes! All stones should be used dry. Diamond and CBN with no pressure. The diamonds are glued in, too much pressure will remove them. Use all stones with light pressure. What's your experience so far? Diamond stones need to break in too though. Not sure about sharpmaker rods.. But, It is a common pr...

Thanks for sharing ! On a practical note, how do you polish the washers ?
I held my wicked edge strop in one hand, and polished the washer with my index finger pushing it down.

Re: Maintaining pm 2 s110v edge with sharp maker

It's screaming sharp, hair whittling edge. I had a feeling you were going to say that haha, I have some practicing to do One of the best decisions I ever made in regards to sharpening was to go to lower grit finishes. Learning how to get shaving sharpness off your coarse stones is a great skill to ...

Re: Which steel for the Para 3?

I’d go CPM 4V, Rex45, or Maxamet. There all (3) super strong.

If you want something that is stainless maybe S110V.

There’s something about the red Para 3, with black 4V blade that looks so good to me.

Yea a cool idea. Bladeforums hosted the knife on there thread. A lot of the others have been stolen though. I think CAM is the last man standing.

Here’s another picture of my edge. I love how long this steel stays sharp. https://i.ibb.co/hK2Kbmv/9-EC98-E74-9-A11-45-C3-A25-A-681-F6-ECAB87-C.jpg https://i.ibb.co/cxhCr8z/7-DF1-DC6-F-A85-D-43-BD-A9-EC-2910986-F0-B1-D.png https://i.ibb.co/d23BMrs/3-BB37190-3-CAC-403-C-B117-3-C87-A71-A2-C74.png

Re: Maintaining pm 2 s110v edge with sharp maker

I have not sharpened my PM2 in a little while. I don’t know how long it’s been. Maybe 3 weeks. It is still very sharp. And I will just strop it with diamond loaded leather 10/14 micron probably today. You’ve got to use some decent pressure, and after about 30 passes each side, it becomes crazy razor...

Re: Maintaining pm 2 s110v edge with sharp maker

S110V is pretty tricky to sharpen, and get a extremely sharp edge. I could always get it pretty sharp, but it took a lot of practice to get it hair whittling, or hair popping sharp. But, It is easy to maintain once you learn the steel. I reprofile and sharpen on a wicked edge. But I really no longer...

Spyderco Military butter smooth action.

My Spyderco Military CQI S110V was feeling a little rough upon flicking and closing the knife. So I took the knife apart, and cleaned and polished all of the pivot areas to a mirror finish. I found some old thread lock resting on the brass bushings, and a little dirt preventing a smooth action. So, ...

Re: Suggestions for a new spydie !

I use a my PM2 Blurple S110V for work. Edge retention is amazing. I think he has one, It may be a Para 3 Blurple, if so I’d use that!

I think he’s already got some pretty good work knife options.

Re: best steel?

Some of you folks seem to overestimate how abrasive wood is. I have a chopper made from S7. If you look at a blade steel chart, it's got toughness that's off the charts, but with .55% carbon is has very low wear resistance: http://corse76.altervista.org/images/resil.gif I sharpen that chopper only ...

Manix 2, CPM 4V marble carbon, hollow grind. There priced decent at $188 Maybe a Para 3 st nicks CPM 4V red g10. A little pricier at $199-$240 Possibly larger knives? I think you favor smaller knives though. How about a manbug in ZDP-189? Spyderco Military REX45 sprint they are still in stock. These...

Re: best steel?

What steel did the OP decide on?

I’d probably pick In this order as my first choice;

MAXAMET

REX45

CPM S110V

CPM 4V

CPM M4

Cruwear

S30V, this steel is probably the easiest choice. Very rust resistant. Will take a very good edge, good enough edge retention. But, the edge is also durable too.

Re: How much are you willing to spend on a Chinese made knife?

As of right now, I only own USA made Spyderco’s. But, I purchased a Spyderco Tenacious, and a Spyderco Resilience. They are $38, and $50 respectively at your local Walmart. If it were not for me buying these china made knives, I would’ve never spent the money on the (2) Spyderco’s I have now, or the...
