Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm mainly referring to the two points that are folded/compacted down. I've sharpened the knife many times, and was asking about the two points shown in the picture.

Why are you buying Spyderco's off Ebay anyway? A reputable dealer solves this problem. And I'm pretty sure you'd have much better luck on the Exchange on another forum if you're looking for used ones.

Topic: Diamond sharpmaker rods...wet or dry?
Replies: 8
Views: 2359

I noticed an immediate difference in how easily the knife moves over my DMT plates when dry vs. wet. I feel that a little water on the plate makes it slide more easily over the abrasive, which in turn made it easier to keep the same repetative motion going due to a better feel and feedback from the ...

As a side note, the knife is an absolute beast. Not anywhere near what I'd call sharp but it still cuts. Easily separates stiff enough material and even saws through flame resistant woven fiberglass gasket faster than a fresh razor blade. Also, the yellow frn is great as a high-visibility color at w...

Thanks setldown, but the amount of damage is beyond what I'd want to tackle with just DMT rods. Although I definitely could, it would just take a significant ammount of time compared to power tools :D I'll put a couple pictures up today to show everyone, hopefully the damage can be seen on camera

Best way to Restore Heavilly Damaged SE knives?

My Yellow SE Pacific Salt is in pretty terrible condition. One of the rearmost teeth is completely impacted to about half its original hight, and all have heavy, visible, rolls. No chips or edge fracture, just significant blunting. Ive been considering using a Dremel to grind off the damage and refo...

Cliff has articles explaining things like edge stability, ease of sharpening, and other applicable things that would probably help clear up what makes a steel ideal for the task at hand. http://www.cliffstamp.com/knives/articles/index.html

Quantifying performance, as Cliff stated, is not nearly as complex as it seems. In my opinion, the majority of people either have no interest in real relative performance, or it's just too many seemingly meaningless numbers. The key is to be able to wrap your head around what the numbers really mean...

Also, an all-black knife will appear smaller to the eye than it actually is when compared to satin and lighter handles. Another benefit IMO is that your blade can be put away filthy or wet, or sweaty, and you won't have any problems, even if left that way for a long period of time. YMMV of course.

My first and only is my DLC black g-10 millie. I like it a lot for most of the reasons mentioned above, and the only thing that has caused visible wear to it was an aluminum can. It left prominent scratches through the coating and show the bare steel beneath it.

The reason I chose to start learning freehand is so that I have full control through the whole sharpening process, and can sharpen any knife at any angle, to any level of finish I want. YMMV, this is just my reasoning.

I started with the sharpmaker, then got the UF rods and a strop, and recently began freehanding with a dual-grit hardware store stone and DMT X-Coarse, Coarse, and Fine 6x2 plates. I feel completely prepared to sharpen any knife I have or end up getting. I would very strongly recommend a Sharpmaker,...
