Re: Manix2 in CTS-XHP short review.

Manix 2 is my favorite folding knife. The XHP version is ridiculously easy to sharpen and get a mirror polished edge.

Any new wave models in the horizon?

Its been a while since the waved endura and delica has come out. Isn't it about time to get a new waved spyderco?

Also, since the patent is up to be expired how does that figure into things? Will the price of a waved endure and delict go down?

Slysz Bowie for us peasants?

Is there any chance of getting a Slysz bowie but in G-10 and compression lock anytime in the future?

Really liking the Slysz but at its price point its a hard pill to swallow for most.

Anyone else hankering for a clip point design like the Slysz?

Re: Manix 2 G10 CQI?

Whenever they do this I'm gonna get a few more. Definitely worth the weight savings.

Re: Gearing up to freehand sharpen S110V and high vanadiums

Just an update. I got my Atoma plates in and tried it on some s110v. I made a few swipes on the 600 grit to fix up the heel and immediately progressed to the 1200 grit. About a dozen swipes on each side and I was done. Wow that was fast. I'm now looking at several CBN emulsions and possibly some oth...

Re: Blurple Manix 2 XL w/ S110V?

Thanks. I use the XL the most and wouldn't mind a S110V blade on it since my bevels are at 20ish dps anyways.

Re: Gearing up to freehand sharpen S110V and high vanadiums

Very impressive. Yes I'd like to get all my folders to do crossgrain push cuts without having to spend hours at a time.

Where did you find that CBN emulsion and why suede as opposed to regular leather or balsawood strops?

Thanks

Re: Gearing up to freehand sharpen S110V and high vanadiums

Can you provide a reference for the sigma power water stones? I see them at Leevalley's put there is not a lot of true technical information on them.

I'm almost dizzy right now with all the options out there.

Gearing up to freehand sharpen S110V and high vanadiums

Times change and so do popular steels. I'm looking into gearing up to freehand sharpen S110V, S30V and other high vanadium steels. So far I'm looking at getting the Atoma 140, 600 and 1200 plates to set the bevels. After that, what's the next step to really polishing the edge? Shapton glass stones? ...
