Re: Ouroboros G10 polished and contoured

David, How well do you think this could be done to a PM2? Getting the contoured scales could solve my itch for the Shaman! :D Thanks! Hamilton You can definitely polish it but you may not be able to get as much grain to show through. You need to really contour it a good amount to get that much grai...

I didn't realize the K390 Stretch was a straight spine. Killin' it with the K390 models!
Sharp Guy,

Great catch! I might or might not be working... and completely looked over that detail! That’s intriguing!

Re: Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

I don’t consider any of the Spyderco knives mentioned above to be true front flippers, the tabs are all at the rear/top of the knife. I’d love to see something from Spyderco in this area! Liquid Cobra, Please forgive me for not giving you credit for this thread as well. I was extremely impressed by...

Re: Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

I am pretty fidgety with my knives. I tried a well regarded front flipper out of curiosity. It took a good bit of practice/getting used to/break in period, but I eventually became proficient at it. It is sort of fun, but less practical than almost every other opening mechanism, as in it takes more ...

Re: Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

I hoped the Watu would be one. Hoping also that they adjust the detent better than at the flippers (Sliverax, mantra 3...) - the detent was way too soft. Ric, Good point! I had to make my detent harder on the Sliverax, but gem of a knife! Somewhat like a reverse Smock, but I love the looks of the S...

Interest in Front Flipper by Spyderco?

After watching EpicSnuggleBunny’s collection video, it made me want a front flipper! Doctor Frunkey has showed his Shamwari, and it has beautiful lines. Not having a flipper, makes everything berry continuous and sleek, like the essence of the Ikuchi. I watched a video on Stan Wilson and his creatio...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Next up, my LC200N Pacific Salt. Dulled it a bit at work and gave it a quick touch up. Four passes per side on a never been used fine sharpmaker rod setup free hand, then three passes per side on a 1 micron diamond paste strop. Very, very sharp. I plan to run polished edges on this knife until I ge...

Re: Next SE Sprint Run Desired?

Cambertree, Have you tried a Cruwear SE??? I had asked in a separate thread if people thought it would perform well? Based off what I’ve gathered from the sharpening community here, a tough steel that’s easy to sharpen makes for a good SE knife. That should make Cruwear good? Hamilton Hey Hamilton ...

Re: New Double Sided CBN Benchstone

Could you use this to thin out an edge on a knife, say at 10 degrees per side, then set a microbevel on the Sharpmaker at 15 degrees per side? Hamilton Sure. That’s basically how I sharpen most of my utility folders and fixed blade knives these days. It has the advantage of being very easy and quic...

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

Same Same but different. I own the Delica wharncliffe so probably will not be getting a rock jumper as the knives are very similar. Am I missing something or are they similar enough to have one or the other. Depends on how well the Delica fits your hand, and how important it is for you to not have ...
