Re: Why did you join?

I've owned knives & Spydercos way before I learned about this forum.

Re: Goniometers

I used it in this instance to ensure that the formula that I use to both center the blade vertically in the clamping system as well as getting as close as I can to my target °dps is accurate. Centering the blade for me + math = even bevels (my target was 18°dps on the Shaman using the WE) :spyder: ...

Re: Goniometers

I have the Gritomatic Laser Edge Lite 2.0 Goniometer. It’s an inexpensive and useful tool. Some larger knives don’t quite fit, but I’m talking about wide blades like the ESEE Junglas or kitchen cleavers. Most knives should be fine in it. It takes CR2032 batteries and mine came with a spare battery....

Re: Guided angle sharpening systems with FFG spyderco blades?

My first guided system was a KME (sold it) ; I had a Worksharp for a bit but noticed it would leave lateral scratch lines on the blades from the steel dust on the guides (sold it) . Next came the EdgePro which I still use to get to that part of the blade right next to the plunge line/ricasso; I main...

That would really be a bummer because I waited to place some orders today anticipating more to be added tomorrow. That was their plan anyway.
Think of all the exclusives that will be at next year's sale if it is held in person Nick :D
