I think it would be great if Spy would make an endura size knife with cut outs and almite coating like the almite navigator,keep it thin,put a S30v blade on it and either the front lock with Boye detent or a compression lock. I think the military is long overdue for a solid titanium or aluminum hand...

Topic: question on stropping. please help
Replies: 10
Views: 1602

The best strops are the ones with the tightest grained leather like the Cordovan leather, these will give the finest finish. Also,if you finish your blade with an ultra fine stone you will find that you do not want any stropping compound on the strop as this will actually dull the knife. If you fini...

Models I think you should keep: SS delica and endura-nice for the money. FRNR delica and endura-they are just so popular-do you have something better to replace them with? Progrip stainless SS dragonfly-another nice one for the dollar. Military-keep but a redesign with a compresson lock and stronger...

One praise I do have for the serrated edge. A couple years ago I sold a friend a SS full serrated Rookie in ATS-55 steel, being a hunter this friend took the knife black bear hunting as he always had the knife clipped in his right front pocket. He proceded to get a bear with a very long shot and it ...

Just for everybodys info, many a fine custom knife maker(like Wayne Goddard) have declared that when heat treated to the same Rc value that there is little difference between D2 and Ats-34/154 CM in edge holding and also that the heat treat and tempering of D2 must be very precise as the material do...

I agree both edge types have their advantages but in order for serrations to retain their advantage over plain edges in specific cutting jobs the serrations must remain razor sharp or they are just not as efficient and loose this advantage. A serrated edge once badly damaged can really never be brou...

Benchmades 154cm is not inferior to vg-10, I own around 20 benchmade knives and while I like vg-10 I think 154CM is as good an edge holder and a little bit tougher to boot. Benchmade also offers CPM S30v and the high strength, excellent edge holding M2 carbon steel. Pick a knife in any of these stee...

Right on Rebel! Another note, you will find that the better you become at sharpening knives the less important that the blade steel maters, like I said, Im happy with anything in stainless that is as good as 440C or G-2 on up and I like all the carbon steels too, as a matter of fact, sometimes I lik...

In my experience, ats-34 and 154cm are a little harder to sharpen than ats-55 but hold a edge longer, vg-10 seems to be even with 154cm and ats-34 in edge holding and 440c is the easiest to sharpen but holds an edge not as well as the aformentioned steels,although, it is an acceptable steel to me an...

Like I've said before, I own knives from several manufactures and In my opinion spyderco has always had the sharpest and easiest to sharpen blades out of all of them, I think spy cares more about the edge geometry and quality of heat treat and tempering on their blades. Knives should be designed to ...

The police has a 1/8 inch blade thickness and the military has 3/16 blade thickness, the police has a sharper thinner tip than the military and is more likley to be broke off than the millitarys, the hollow ground police models tip is even weaker with the top grind (false edge). As mentioned, the mi...

The tapered diamond rod from DMT should do the trick, get the fine grit (red)one although it will still be too coarse for polishing but will restore an abused edge. Use 1200 to 1800 wet/dry aluminum oxide sandpaper wraped around it for polishing and break the diamond rod in first before using it wit...

As of yesterday I was getting ready to call them about the clips until I got...
