Got my pair of CBN rods today. Unfortunately one of the rods is slightly "twisted" along the longitudinal axis so that the flats are not plane anymore - only noticed this after I put them into the Sharpmaker base to start sharpening. If you look along the rod the twist is clearly visible, though. Go...

@GT

If you can sharpen to a decent edge you can sharpen ZDP-189 to that edge, too. It just takes a good bit longer.
Dragonfly is a rather small knife, Manix 2 is quite the contrary of that. :)

:-p I will order one myself as soon as NGK has them available. Already have the Street Beat and that's a perfect knife, IMHO. Time to get the bigger brother. :)

Make a few cuts through cardboard, no issues. As expected significant initial edge damage from hot grinding is likely a contributing factor (maybe the most significant one) to issues of reported fragility. Would you go so far as to say it's nearly impossible to grind a knife without minor/recoverab...

Don't know much about religion eh? I know enough to prefer science logic and philosophical schools of thought over any religion.

My opinion is there are no church laws, canons or gospel that discourage the carry of a pocket knife. 023:014 Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with t...

I'm an agnostic and I'm pretty sure I only need about 10 minutes with a searchable bible on a computer to find a quote why it is a mortal sin to bring a knife into a church (or anywhere else) and another quote that commands you to carry your tool(s) everywhere, so ...

Rust is a little bit more complex, the formula is:

I guess we all agree that the para 2 is a most excellent example of knife design. To improve this all further changes have to be "top notch". - matte Titanium wire clip (deep carry) - Titanium scales - even better screws - perhaps a more expensive steel? - polished blade? - my personal wish: knife t...

If the edge doesn't look spectacular enough, you could do one or two light 90° cuts :eek: into a sharpening stone. This should certainly mess it up properly for our microscopic viewing pleasure. :-)

Very impressive pictures, Clip!
I especially like the almost-torn-off piece of metal on the last one.

Could you possibly add some edge-on pictures of damaged/used edges, please? These should be really interesting.

In this case I would suggest taking it apart and soaking the metal parts only in something more aggressive (paint stripper or the like).
