Re: Which steels did you carry today?

Where are the programmers? Can someone write a script to automate the process?

Re: Which steel has impressed you lately?

I feel the same way about Spydercos K390. For how hard it is and how long it holds an edge, its surprisingly easy to sharpen. I was chatting with Roman at Kase' Knives about how easy it is to sharpen Spyderco K390 earlier this week and that it had a similar feel and "bright clear" sound to the cust...

Re: Which steel has impressed you lately?

Interesting that you mention VG-10. I've been carrying the PE lil Matriarch every day for over 2 weeks and just touched it up for the first time since the initial sharpening and honestly it didn't need it, it was still probably sharper than what most people carry. I have also been very impressed wit...

Re: Help me find a discontinued Spyderco...

It must be the day of the lil Matriarch SE today... I woke to an available one on ebay this morning... and now there's another one up although it is lightly used and priced higher than the one I grabbed but they don't come up often so if anyone is interested here's the listing. https://www.ebay.com/...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Looking good, looks like that steel takes to polishing very nicely. A question when you share that you used Venev diamonds 400 followed by 1200 are these bench stones or the ones sold by Gritomaric for the Hapstone 7. Pretty sure you free handed this but not certain. Thanks. Thanks! Yes freehand wi...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I was having issues with the edge rolling on my AEB-L Urban after I dropped the bevel angle so I added a microbevel but still wasn't happy with the way edge held up. I then decided to try adding a little convex to see if it helped...so far it's looking good. No rolling and still super charp. Sharpen...

Re: The Superior Delica

I felt the same way...seemed like an odd shape to be practical in normal day to day use but WOW is it a great utility knife!

I'd like to find one with teeth too. For now though I'm extremely pleased with the the way the PE version has been working.

How about a Salt version? :D

Re: The Superior Delica

You're all wrong :p The most superior Delica is the lil Matriarch. ;) IMHO this is the best length and shape for an EDC reverse S blade. It has just enough hook at the tip to puncture or pierce with the belly shallow enough and far enough back not to interfere with the tip like on the Cricket. I bou...

I believe JDW mentioned Arizona Custom Knives earlier, and if I'm not mistaken they DO have SE matriarchs.
We're looking for the lil Matriarch. The last and only lil Matriarch ACK has listed on their site was sold in 2015.
