polished edges for me

for both the delica and military i carry, i like keeping the edges polished. edges just look cooler to me mirrored. for the most part, i just use the knives to break down boxes or cut food. the polished edges are a result of using the spydie course, fine, and extra fine rods. i really didn't set out...

Spydie Military

Hi: I use the Spydie Military Lefty model for food duties. I don't like cutting steak with those single use serrated steak knives. I do make sure to slice the steak horizontally so the blade never touches the ceramic plate. Or if rice or noodles are available, i place the steak on top and slice away...

good job on knife sharpening

cool beans with the sharpening. the SM system really opened my eyes to sharpening stuff and i find myself using the knives more because I maintain the edges myself. The more i sharpen stuff, the more patience i get and the results get incrementally better. i tried stropping with red compound on note...

What could make it better? Maybe one for each hand. :0)

I know some folks wanted the option to carry it tip up.

If anything, it would be nice to see more lefty variations. I EDC the lefty but would be nice for it to come in safety orange g-10.

I'd buy two Spydie machetes if they were made, one to use and the other to look at and hold with cotton gloves.

Be super sweet if they based it on the Rock Salt but supersized it. :D

ack,
i remember seeing this guide mentioned in another thread. this guide and the Sharpmaker rods would make a pretty good portable sharpening kit in the field.
