Re: What angle do you sharpen at?

I used to try to match the factory bevel, and will still do that for touch ups before a full sharpening. During a full (freehand) sharpening, I used to do 15-20°/side. Recently, I've been aiming for 12-15°/side, depending on the steel. I'm toying with the idea of dropping my AEB-L Urban to 10°/side ...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

I generally don't sharpen immediately, but factory edges lose their hair popping sharpness so quick that I find myself at least lightly touching up the edge pretty soon. Once it doesn't cut nicely and I'm bored of light touch ups, I'll do a full sharpening. There's no reason to waste that initial st...

Re: AEB-L Urban Performance Reviews

I've also been surprised by how easily I get a crazy sharp edge on my Urban. I especially like that I now have a steel that can put my Arkansas stones back to work and can strop back from kinda dull to mostly shaving sharp. Although it's early for a verdict since I'm only one full sharpening in, I a...

Re: Lil Native just keeps getting better

It's a great design, but the bland backlock version is uninspiring for me. The thickness behind the edge is also a bit too fat for such a small knife.

I look forward to my St. Nick's exclusive compression lock.

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

I also wonder what the actual number made was. On their Instagram, SNK said there were 367 for sale during this drop.

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

Wow, I can't believe i scored one of these. I've been waiting to get a lil native until there was a sprint or exclusive, and i managed to miss the other st. Nick's exclusives, so I'm extra psyched for this one! I'm pretty much in this boat too, except that I tried the backlock when a good sale pric...

...I really wish I had a red DLT exclusive. It's the one that gives me reason to kick myself every time I see one.
I finally got the red M390 PM2 on the last run, so I can stop kicking myself:

I may have indicated earlier that I will be skipping this one. Apparently that wasn't me. Someone must have compromised my account :o
