Obsidian does take a heat treat though, and ribbon Obsidian would make for a sweet knife blade.
Never heard of ribbon obsidian so I looked it up.
It looks really nice :-)

Just make sure you use an old brush head and don put it in your mouth afterwards.

Thanks for all your help. Used a diamond to get to 20 degrees. Thats the smallest angle the Smith's kit (from Walmart) can reach. I can already shave hair and cut paper soso (might be just my way of cutting and not the knife) I plan to go down to 15 but need to find a way to trick the angle rod guid...

Flint blades are so stone age. Call me when they come out with the obsidian version. Some Amber scales would go pretty with that. To help ensure the 2016 Forum knife is available when announced, Spyderco is running the 2016 production concurrent with the 2013 batch. Early leaks indicate the 2016 ver...

Sharpmaker for new angle?

Hi, Im planning on putting a flatter angle on one of my knifes. The knife (seal puppy) is 4.73 inch long and made from AUS8. How much wear can I expect on the Sharpmaker rods? Or should I grind the angle down with another tool. Suggestions would be great but I don't plan to buy a belt sander just ye...

Cut my 4 year old daughter's popped blister before the loose skin could pull out even more skin from her hand. I carried my black Native today. I wish the tip would have been a bit more pointed to get under the top layer of the skin (the 2nd layer was already looking fine, just a bit moist but not r...

Black blades = food safe?

Have been wondering for a while now with other blades and my latest Spyderco (black Native), Is the black coating safe for the preparation of food? I like coatings for rust prevention and low visibility but who knows how safe or toxic these coatings can be? Some of it will surely transfer to food fr...

Performance is the same.
However I like the decorated design much better.
There should be some pictures at the Kickstarter project where these pens appeared first.
Hope this helps.

had some weird 60 year old pistol in the German army and never hit anything at 15 yards.
Used a friends MP 9 (SW) and hit everything in one spot. Didn't try any other pistols yet.

I use it and my wife has one too. She is less careful with it then me though. Its worth the price if you like titanium and the design (I got a "decorated" version) Otherwise a $0.10 pen writes too. I prefer the TiBolt to some waterman or montblanc. They look too girly. The titanium pen however looks...
