Re: Favorite "HARD USE" Blade Steel

Not really. The whole "survival" thing is just an excuse for kids in adult sized bodies to go play with toys in the woods IMO. Which is a perfect description of most of us. :) I have no good reason to own a $250 S7 chopper with the amount of axes I have :D Interesting you mention S7 steel for axes ...

Re: Favorite "HARD USE" Blade Steel

I really like VG-10, and have had a considerable amount of experience with it. It holds an edge reasonably well, has better than average corrosion resistance, has reasonable toughness, and is easy to resharpen. It's a very forgiving all-around steel. H1 is excellent in SE, but for me it depends on ...

Re: Reprofiling M390 using Sharpmaker CBN rods

I dont have experience with M390, 204P, or 20CV. But, I have expereience in reprofiling steels, the most challenging being S90V. The most important thing is consistancy. You can do it faster, but speed can have higher risk for mistakes I've even found the old 440V ( S60V) to even be more stubborn t...

Re: Common Sense: Nearing Extinction Unfortunately

I've personally never understood the whole appeal of body piercings. As far as tattoos go, working as a massage therapist, a LOT of my clients have tats; some big, some small. Whatever has meaning for them, I suppose. I have no stake in other people having tats one way or another. I simply have no ...

Re: Molecular Assembler Nanotechnology will change the world, but, will we survive it?

This technology is something to be concerned about. But "Artificial Intelligence" scares me far more than any "nano-technology" does.

Re: Starting to buy Spydercos in pairs!

Now that my work load has picked up and many bills are now paid in full I'm going to start again buying favorite models in pairs myself. For two reasons>> one for a "user" and one for the collection and/or for a "Back Up Unit" ( BUU). I've got "Back Up Units for about 5 models in my user rotation an...

Re: CTS-XHP Thread

XHP is a great stainless steel no doubt about it, but I prefer M390 over it. It feels like the same steel but turned up one notch in every single attribute. Same amazing fine edge holding if not even better, coupled with better stain resistance and ease of sharpening. I don't own any knife in XHP a...

Re: a painful lesson relearned *update*

For many different reasons than what Brother "ZROW" decided to no longer use the USPS to ship his packages I've also decided that they are not a good option as well.

Favorite "HARD USE" Blade Steel

Well I know that the title might be a bit of a "curve ball" for some of you because there are some of you who use the same blade steel for virtually every type of cutting job. Also some people think that these newer/better supersteels might automatically be better for really hard use but I don't nec...

Re: Which steel "spoiled" you?

I have to go by the different eras and time periods on that one. Because back in the mid 90s when I got my first Spyder with GIN-1 I thought it was right on with serrated edges. But then when I got my very first JD Smith model in the late 90s with ATS-34 I had thought that was a premium steel and on...

Re: 1950s/60s TV Shows That Were Truly Ahead Of Their Time

Hanna Barbera cartoons were quite different from Looney Tunes, Woody Woodpecker, Tom & Jerry and others. But their cartoons were probably more timeless than most others from that time period that I can remember. But few cartoons out of that era could make me laugh as hard as the Looney Tunes charact...

Re: 1950s/60s TV Shows That Were Truly Ahead Of Their Time

Davy Crockett was a one hour five part serial from 1954-55. I had a coonskin cap and wore it everywhere. If you loved the old "Davey Crockett series then how could you not love the show they had in the mid to late 60s about Daniel Boone. The show starred Ed Ames and Fess Parker. While it was runnin...

Re: 1950s/60s TV Shows That Were Truly Ahead Of Their Time

Scenes from the TV series Longstreet (1971), starring James Franciscus and featuring Bruce Lee. Although not a '60s show, IMO, it's close enough. These scenes were definitely ahead of their time. One thing is for sure: None of the current TV shows would ever have scenes like this. Attention spans h...

Re: Oats

yeah I like oatmeal especially. I really like the "old fashioned" oatmeal that you have to cook a longer period of time. I do not like those instant or microwave oatmeals at all. For the past few years I refuse to eat anything out of a microwave oven after I learned how they destroy the nutrients in...

Re: Behold! The elusive "Dodofly"!

Hey "Steelcity" that's a really cool idea you've got there. But I have two minor objections but I'm sure those can be worked out. First off I would not want that type of a blade with an FRN handle. I think it should be in the same league as the original Dodo and should have a really good CPM blade s...

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

Hype steel kind of tired of it. Have purchased each more than twice. My experience puts CTS-204P and the overly much recognized M390 as identical. Latrobe 20CV alone has proven sharper smoother subjectively almost Cruwear like cutting right out of the box. So surprised how CTS-204P fails to be reco...
