Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

People with that type of mentality are the same as brainwashed cult members. I know a couple of people who are like that. But methinks the subject is starting to drift way too OT. :p Jim Jim, I was just speaking in general terms... :D That's how the mob mentality develops in general.... One of the ...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

Sounds like some programmers out there need to tweak their A.I. projects. IMHO There's a lot of things that show up besides fan boys. Reading comprehension is a lost skill no longer taught in schools because the teachers themselves do not have the skill. It is, therefore, no surprise that many of t...

Re: Smart Phones

I have a Samsung Note 9 and I bought this mobile two or three months ago but I am thinking of upgrading from Samsung to iPhone but I don't understand which model I should take in iPhone because I have been using it for a long time. iPhones are very different from Android phones. Please suggest whic...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

I’ve never had a “problem “ with people there, but I’ve seen others getting attacked. A lot of my issues come from people not having good reading comprehension so that when I say something their response is way out in left field. Sounds like some programmers out there need to tweak their A.I. proje...

Re: Your New Knife Ritual

If I am going to use it I reprofile and sharpen it before doing anything putting my edge on it etc.

Once that is done it becomes my user and or I might do some testing etc. depending.

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

I like how a few BF members say that only paying members’ opinions really count (NOT!). Although it’s never been directed towards me, it smacks of elitism. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ve been a BF member since almost the very beginning, since late 1998 (although my profile says 1999). Call me chea...

Re: Rex 45 sharpening

I use Congress Mold Master SIC stones on my Edge Pro.... They are VERY hard SIC with very little filler, very high quality... Hey Jim, I generally sharpen everything with SiC and only go to Diamond or CBN if a particular steel is frustrating me. Congress don't ship to Oz. I could call on a favour f...

Re: Rex 45 sharpening

Haven't seen a steel yet that I couldn't sharpen with high quality SIC stones. I have seen almost all of them over the years.... Including S125V and MAXAMET.... You're post is missing the final ingredient that allows you to get get it done with high quality non-diamond abrasives, and that is experi...

Re: Rex 45 sharpening

I've sharpened k390 with no problem, is it similar to that If you can sharpen K390, you'll definitely be able to sharpen REX-45. The two have different personalities. K390 introduces sharpening difficulty from carbide type and volume whereas REX-45 brings difficulty from high hardness. Both are no ...

Re: Rex 45 sharpening

I've got a text 45 manix lw coming tomorrow. I've never had rex 45 and wanted to know how it sharpens up compared to similar steels. Thx Sharpens pretty easy really and due to the higher hardness the burr is easy to remove. About like S30V really give or take from what I have experienced. Nothing r...

Re: RIP Diana Rigg

Was a great show. It started out with just Patrick Macnee as John Steed then they added his 1st Female partner played by Honor Blackman. Then Diana Rigg after that and for most of the series then Linda Thorson for the last Season or so. A little trivia: :) Both Diana Rigg and Honor Blackman were Bo...

Very sad to hear of her loss. Long ago I recall looking in the TV Guide and seeing a program called, "The Avengers," listed for Saturday afternoon. I thought it was a show about Marvel Comic's Avengers... I was quite surprised to see a black and white TV show about John Steed and Emma Peel in a Jam...

Re: Stable edge steels (NOT TOUGHNESS)

Apparently when you push on the edge and stress the steel it is going to fail. If it is a brittle steel it will chip, if it is a tough steel then it will roll. But either way you exceed the steel's limit and it fails. If you want a more stable edge then you need a stronger steel, raise that limit. ...

Re: Stable edge steels (NOT TOUGHNESS)

Resistance to deformation is measured by hardness (not controlled by steel but by heat treatment). Resistance to chipping is measured by toughness. So asking which is the most stable but without toughness doesn't make any sense. An edge which loses cutting ability to either chipping or rolling is s...
