Re: Shaman clip brittle?

They must have made that clip out of s110v.

Re: S30V, VG-10; But If I Had A Choice???

I presently have every knife I want in a more desirable steel (to me), except a sage. Although there's a dozen other steels I would rather have, s30v has been my preferred stainless for a few years now. All the VG10 I've used seems mushy, for lack of a better word. So far my experience with BD1N, wo...

Re: Province - First Impressions.

I’m thinking I’ll follow the original bevel angle and take it to a 1200grit Venev bonded diamond finish without micro bevel, but I’m open to suggestion. :) I'm betting after grinding the damage out and finishing like you say, it'll suffer less damage, and maybe even none, doing the same thing. Yes,...

Re: CRUWEAR for all!

I’d be into Maxamet but I’d have to buy up new sharpening gear, ceramics don’t “cut it”. I like cruwear quite a lot, but my current favorite is M4. I think I’ve got the knives I need in cruwear, a para 3 and a millie. It would be interesting to try it in a fixed blade. But frankly, my Mora companio...

Re: Province - First Impressions.

Anyhow, that’s just my $AU0.02c worth and I found this comparison chat that may give you some idea were 4V sits. :) https://i.postimg.cc/jd3TCc3d/6-B0831-A8-923-E-4-DBB-89-E7-3-E0-FFCCD73-E3.png This chart seems generally reasonable except D2, which sticks out like a sore thumb as completely wrong.

Re: Drinking the Maxamet Kool-Aid

I don't understand this unless there's something wrong with the steel. What stones do you use on Maxamet? Norton jb8 to reprofile or reset bevel. Eze lap coarse thru extra fine, dmt eef, 1 micron diamond paste to finish. I've stopped at all diamond stages. Right now The N5 is at dmt eef. I've exper...

What if the Enuf was sprinted in upgraded steels?
In cpm m4, it would be an even better field and game knife.

I believe the Rookie is a small Police; Rookie Sprint with the K390 or HAP40 perhaps.
I believe you're right! Rookie in k390 it is then.

Some of these grips remind me of the odd ways I see people holding a pen/pencil to write. :)

Re: Drinking the Maxamet Kool-Aid

Maxamet easily gets edge damage from diamond plates . I use diamond lapping films pasted to balsa to sharpen maxamet, and it works wonderfully. I don't understand this unless there's something wrong with the steel. I had a similar problem with a new s30v blade, but it wasn't just diamond plates, it...

I remember wanting an AFCK really bad at one point. Then Police 3 photos came out and that was that.
I'd go for a scaled down 3 inch police in k390 or rex45 right now.

Re: Is this a grip that you use?

Using a Delica for reference... The 1st grip might be used to cut 45 degrees down and away from me. The hand forward and closer to the blade and thumb close by behind the hump should provide extra force to the edge push cutting, vs the same grip with the hand moved back. The second grip looks useful...

Re: What is detail work????

I consider how I choke up and put my index finger on top front of my Delica wharnie’s blade to help not cut too deep in boxes I’m opening, detail work. The ricasso is better than a choil - perfect on this knife. Big *** blades for such things are stupid, in my opinion, unless you have big *** hands...

Re: Crucible and Niagara

I'm surprised Crucible doesn't have their own rolling mill, or do they and just not roll out to desired specs? Some large mills do have their own rolling divisions, but even they will use mills like Niagara. Making steel is a major focus. Rolling steel is also a different major focus. sal Just wond...
