K390 has come up in discussion several times.
If k390 were used, how would you go about making it shave ready?
Would the common abrasives and procedures presently used for straight razors be adequate ?

Re: Corona Virus, Chinese Origin, Now In the USA

I bet there's 1000x more cases than what's reported, both here and abroad.

Re: Urban discussion

One of the things I like most about the urban is that it doesn’t lock.
It’s so convenient to pull it out, open, make a cut, close and pocket all one hand without having to manipulate a lock.
I agree the cat is a locking cousin.

Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

Right handed spinning reels are meant to be cranked left handed.

I've seen people use them upside down and crank backwards with their right hand. :eek: :D

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

While I want almost all of the rex45 sprints, Im probably going to try to get the native 5 lightweight. Its really cheap for a native lightweight with a steel upgrade, and Im hoping it will sell out slower than the g10 options so that I could have a chance at getting one. Also the native 5 lightwei...

Those are some great knives. Which pattern is the upper right most of the photo?
Thanks, that one would be a gec 735213 ebony. I guess it's like a large trapper.
My favorite 73 is the bodark handled single blade, right below the sak in that picture.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

Every once in a while I use one of my knives to shave with, just for the hell of it. At least I know it's doable if needed.

I'll be in for one.

Re: What is your dominant hand / forum statistics

No confusion here, right dominant from head to toe. Interesting thing to me - All the males in my wife's family (her parents and siblings) are left handed, all females right. Of all their children, the females are left handed, males right. All the grand children so far are left handed, 3 girls & 2 b...

I missed out on REX45 but many of my 'worker' knives are HAP40.
I have several of the first run hap40 sprints, and even though the composition is about the same as rex45, I'm guessing the heat treatments are what make them completely different (to me). Maybe this changed in the later runs?

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

I own and have used all these steels except cruwear. I have a couple zwear knives which I understand is the same. If that's the case, it's at the bottom of the list due to both rolling and chipping. I don't understand how this is possible, but happens just from banging it on a bamboo cutting board. ...

Re: Sal, can we please get a Para 3 lightweight in grey/maxamet please?

I too find myself carrying the Para 3 lw more often than any other knife I own, especially since I work in an office. I'll be first in line for a grey/Maxamet. It will more than likely happen seeing as how it's such a popular model. If not, I'd be shocked. :eek: Not trying to bash you...but if you ...
