Research tuf-glide and I think you'll be happy. I just read reviews from gun owners who say after its dry, dirt and dust seem to just fall right off, it doesn't collect at all even inside the firearm :) And everyone knows how dirty guns get on the inside

Spyderco aims for 30 degrees, which you can continue to sharpen at. Using the 40 degree setting adds a micro-bevel that is a bit tougher than the 30 degree and, since you are sharpening just that very small bottom edge, makes sharpening faster and easier. Lots of people go with the 40 degree micro-...

oh yeah i had another question I forgot to ask you guys. If spyderco sharpens around 30 degrees, shouldn't I use the 30 instead of the 40 on my manix? I just used the 40 but it just sharpens the very bottom of the edge. It's ridiculously sharp but I just want to polish up the entire edge on the fine...

Who uses the slick side and who uses the "suade" side. I was always taught to use the rough suade side. But i see all these people using the smooth side? hmmm maybe ill make one of each to try and to see the differences :)

If you can tell the edge angle is uneven beforehand you can work one side more than the other to even it out on the brown stones first. That's "reprofiling". I use a different system for reprofiling, and only use the SM to put on the final edge, but everyone will find their own way :) No method is ...
