Re: 701 Profile Stone Instructions - download here

Hi Wrdwrght, I was just thinking about how could we do that? I think we'd have to offer them with no warrantee against wear? We're getting ready to make another run of Goldenstones. HHHhhhmmmmm. BTW, I'm planning a CBN "Duckfoot" to go with the Golden stone. Hey CoPilot, Hard to say, used different...

Re: When your LED TV goes bad in only 18 Months

I thought I had it for 2 years, but it was only 18 months... :mad: Bummer, dawg. That manufacturer is crossed off my list. However, fret not. For how long is the warranty? It's not a well known fact, but some credit cards automatically tack another year onto manufacturer's warranties. Or you can lo...

Re: When your LED TV goes bad in only 18 Months

Update: Contacted Best Buy this month like they told me to, they couldn't do anything back when I 1st called them back in April due to the restrictions of what was going on. They are replacing the TV with a NEW ONE , straight trade out, and a newer model and one grade up to boot. So it does pay to ...

Re: Pm2 S110V

The biggest thing with S110V is not to overthink it when sharpening. Normally it's at a good hardness level with the Spyderco models so it will not be very difficult to remove the bur. Just treat it like most of the other steels like S30V etc. when sharpening and you won't have much difficulty with...

Re: Pm2 S110V

Ok thank you! This advice helps a lot! The sharpmaker goes to 15degrees. Will sharpening it in my Lansky to 17 and then touching it up as needed on the 15 degree sharpmaker mess it up? Or are the angles close enough? Also do you recommend that diamond strop paste? I want to get some kind of compoun...

Re: Pm2 S110V

Hey ankerson! My Landry only goes to 17 degrees. I have a diamond coarse, the standard coarse 120, the standard medium, standard fine 600, and the strop attachment. So you recommend sharpening it as soon as I get it? I’ve spent the last two weeks practicing burr sharpening (I’ve sharpened a lot of ...

Re: Pm2 S110V

Hi Dwight, Welcome to our forum. I think the knife will serve you well. S110V is a very special steel. Don't let it get too dull. The best way to maintain these "Exotic" steels is to touch up often. Sharpmaker works fine. sal Thanks sal! It’s so cool to hear from the man himself! I don’t have a sha...

Re: Smart Phones

If iTunes has become more well-behaved (haven’t used it for several since I changed an old Dell laptop to Debian), OK, but once burned, twice shy... Laptops were pretty pathetic in general until not very long ago really. My IPAD Air 3 has more power than most laptops even today other than the high ...

Re: Smart Phones

I still use an iPhone 6s Plus. I’m a heavy user and haven’t found a need to switch up. The upcoming iOS 14 evidently purrs on it, so I suppose I’ll keep on keeping on. I simply adore what this phone can do for me. I’m content to replace batteries and Otterbox cases ‘tIl the cows come home. My Apple...

Re: Smart Phones

You got it new? Should last you for a few years or until it runs out of updates... Not sure when that will be, when Apple will stop supporting it.. I needed something quick and didn't want to spend $1k, got it used for $100 but seems to be like new... maybe refurbished? Hopefully apple will keep up...

Re: Smart Phones

I just recently upgraded my iPhone 6 to.... an iPhone 7. The 6 got to where it just wouldn't pick up a cell signal anymore, and deplete the battery in just a couple hours constantly searching. The main thing I notice about the 7, it's significantly faster than the 6. You got it new? Should last you...

Re: S30V Support Club

Same as the last two, I find and always have found S30V to be easy to sharpen.

It didn't matter much what I used to sharpen it either.

Re: Virus Hook EDC tool: opinions?

Copper is naturally antimicrobial. I have looked into this quite a bit. There have been pens made out of copper marketed towards doctors and some reasearch on using copper instead of stainless steel in hospitals for bed rails and hand rails. From what a I read the antimicrobial effects are a somewh...

Well the Woman who cuts my hair has Covid 19..... :eek: They were closed this morning (had an Appt.), so I contacted her and found out. Got it from her husband, he was one of those in denial, it doesn't exist types... :rolleyes: She is highly pissed and very sick... I wonder if he believes it exist...
