One of the things I found interesting is that even back then there were people who made inferior copies of someone else work.

Where's the edge shot prime? I love looking at your edges the same way I like looking at supermodels.
I haven't taken the time to do a full reprofile, just touching her up on the UF stone. I be sure to post some pics when I do though.

I picked up a Ti Military at the Blade show and it hasn't left my pocket since. The others are right it's has much more weight than it's G10 counter part but I don't mind. I love it. Here are some shots I have taken of mine since I got it. http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee58/primeLM/077-5.jpg ht...

prime77, How did you go about making that portable strop? I got some really good thick leather from a guy in my town who has a belt making shop. Just cut it to size and added some green compound. I have been experimenting with carrying it with the double stuff stone. I has worked pretty good. The c...

I was lucky enough to make it to Blade for the Friday opening. Before the show opened I had the great pleasure of meeting Jim and Barb Howe, proprietors of Howes Knife Shop. It was great to thank them for their fantastic service. Once the doors opened I headed to the Spyderco booth. I had the pleas...

It was in the award display case in the center of the show. Spyderco entered it in the collaboration category.

Went by the Spyderco booth today, and all I can say is that the Spydercrew was super friendly. Talked with Mike Janich, Ed Schempp, Eric Glesser and few other people from Spyderco, and was quite surprised at how friendly and down to earth everyone was. These people truly care about their customers....

I almost forgot that I recommended those videos to you in the picture forum. I never heard anything back from you, so I was figuring you just ignored it. I'm glad you got some help from them, your bevels are looking more even. :) http://www.spyderco.com/forums/showthread.php?52079-Show-those-Edges-...

Would it be too much to ask for a vid of your technique Prime77? I have a Youtube channel and have thought about doing vids but my camera is crap at taking videos and don't have a lot of free time to post them. I can tell you that Solo's freehand series had a great influence on me in his advice and...

That is an awesome write up. Just to confirm, when you said the UF stones gave you that nice mirror edge, did you do that on the Sharpmaker with the UF stones? If so how long did it take?? and im going to buy a pair right now... No I used the 306uf larger bench stone. It really is an amazing sharpe...

Nicely done. :) Are you using the 302 series stones or the 306 series? Does the 306 series have a medium and fine available? I just picked up the med, fine and ultra fine in the 302 series but havent used them yet! I must be gun shy or something! I am a noob when it comes to sharpening so sorry if ...
