Re: Is it possible to sharpen knives by only stroping?

If a knife is severely dull the Sharpmaker is not my first choice. If so than with diamonds rods.

For your approach some kind of paste is required.

Leather does only straighten the burr/steel but not remove much.

Re: Para 3 in s45vn or 204p which one would you go for?

S45VN has the new diamond G10 handle. The steel should be "easier" to sharpen.
204p is a better steel. Which handle color will it be?

Re: I need some clarification before using the Sharpmaker for the first time...

Please watch this video

Spyderco Sharpmaker Tips and Tricks

I recommend use it also on kitchen knives to gain experience.
Especially for diamond rods: NO pressure.

I clean the standard stones in the dishwasher.

Re: 1st spiderco

You can't go wrong with your choice.

I advise you to also invest in a Sharpmaker.
Perfect tool for pocket knives but also kitchen knives.

A pocket knife excels and is more fun when sharp.

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

Flying with a knife (even Victorinox Classic SD) you can forget these days.
Even flying you con forget these days ;)

I did not bought a roadie because of the too thick blade.
A Victorinox Classic SD blade is thin and also survives the daily tasks.
Please make a pocket slicer not a pocket pry bar.

Re: New to Spyderco/forum, and help request

I have multiple para 3s and the action is always unique.
Some where perfect from th beginning others needed time/use to get smoother.

Fake ones will have a bad blade steel - dull easy, bad to sharpen.

I also never heard of para 3 fakes.
