Re: Vanax PM2 Lets Do This!!!

👀 His Instagram is cringe Im sorry you feel that way. Its just me. You do you 😎 I had a comment regarding this guy's attitude but had to hold back due to this being a family forum, shiny foot prints, etc. Glad I've never come across this guy's IG account.

Another issue I have with the KME is the clamping system: it works for ffg blades, but if you don't set the blade in the clamp properly, your bevels won't match.
That's one of the reasons I went with a Hapstone V7. No clamps to deal with

Re: Where do you grip large knives with a choil?

I use both grips depending. Usually on something larger I'd prefer to grip behind the choil but will choke up in some cases

Re: Need advice! Freehand or Guided System

I used to freehand sharpen (years ago) and could get pretty good results. Problem for me was consistency (or lack of). I think I got too caught up in trying to get the exact same angle each time I sharpened a knife. I got a slightly used Sharpmaker and that helped a lot. I haven't tried to freehand ...

Re: 12 reasons why the Delica is better than the Native

I have several of each because I like them both despite their differences. They both fit my hand well and both cut whatever I need them too. I try not to overthink a lot of this stuff. If for some reason a knife doesn't work for me I won't buy it. I have no real issues with the Delica or the Native ...

Re: Collection Limiting Rules

No real rules other than only buying what I like and what I'm comfortable spending the money on. I don't try to own every model or each version of specific models. The only exception is maybe the SNK exclusives. I have the ones they've done so far. I might continue to buy the others depending on wha...

Re: Ball Bearing lock redux?

I have appreciation for the locking mechanism on the Sage 3 (Blackie Collins design) but it really doesn't feel the same as the captive ball bearing lock, there's a roughness to it that I think is inherent in the design (it's basically a round bar moving into the slot in the blade). FWIW, the bolt-...

Re: Ladies On The Edge

Hahaha, seriously!! Just a couple weeks ago my wife's car had a tire with a slow leak. At first I just sprayed it down with soapy water and looked for it to bubble up where the air was escaping, no luck. She was out there with me watching, so then I got out the jack and jacked it up to take the tir...

Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

Speaking of Gerber, one knife that should be mentioned is Gerber’s LST. It was the very first knife with a Zytel (FRN) handle and was linerless as well. It paved the way for all the FRN-handles knives that followed. Is it still in production? Jim I always carried a small Buck in my pocket because w...

S110v and S90v are super similar, right? Teal is a nice color for a socially acceptable knife
Yes they're close but I find S90V to be a little easier to touch up
