Please recommend a sharpening (regrind) service

I recently picked up an Al Mar Hawk, to replace my 80's vintage Falcon Talon. Its sole purpose is to remove the occasional wood splinter while on the job, so I'd like a >30° regrind appropriate to this task.

Maintaining the acute blade point is desirable, as would be decent turnover.

Re: More on new Spyderco Light Weights: Let's discuss!

I would love to see a Military LW with an ambidextrous friendly clip and some LW friendly lock, preferably a backlock. While I'm dreaming, it'd be great if it came in a cruwear upgrade in the same way the police is going to come in an upgraded steel. Military and Para Military. Backlock is mandator...

A liner-less Salt lockback version of the Para 3? Yeah, for that I'd be extremely excited.

Re: The Waterway Will Be Mine...

Just learned of the Waterway from the H1/LC200N thread. Nice blade profile with just the right amount of belly, fish not needing as much as a field knife. The pointy front end makes it easier piercing tougher fish skin when starting your fillet cut. Thickness is a lesser concern overall, again due t...

A native 5 but rust proof...
From my perspective as a close-to-the-ocean inside waistband wearer, a Native 5 w/ rustproof blade and rust inhibited stainless internals. Just put in my preorder at KC.

Not a fan of their higher prices, but I've luckily been most pleased with the BBS M390 Para 3.

Re: Any word on the Native Salt?

I have a Lynch clip ready and waiting. I'm hoping the Native Salt will come close to bumping my 2nd gen Delica off its pedestal.

Re: Casey Lynch Short Clip vs. MXG Gear Short Clip

I have both these clips as well. I agree that mxg clip was 10x easier to install the first time and for a while I swore mxg was better but I've started to really appreciate the Lynch clip lately. I think the ramp is better on the Lynch and it's easier to clip on thick pants. Can't really go wrong e...

Re: paramilitary 3

Got my BBS blue M390 a week ago, and its been my go to EDC since. Very happy with my sample which shows itself, as an all around quality build from Spyderco. Having been a former Para 2 enthusiast, I wasn't too surprised at the great ergonomics of the 3. This of course raises the question of whether...

Although a BBS Para 3 is scheduled to arrive this afternoon, I don't expect it'll depose my Delica SE.

Re: What Para 3 sprint runs do you want to see made?

G10 liner-less with backlock. Stainless steel blade as thin as, or even a bit thinner than that on the Para 2.

Hi Sal.
Thank you.
Eric has a lot on his plate, so in time I might just do that. :)

Sooner, rather than later I hope. I picked up a Spyderco fixed blade this year, and the Serrata is near the top of my list for the next.
