Re: Sharpmaker?

It's hard to get full contact on the flats.
I checked yesterday on the flats only a small portion is in contact with the blade. This means also that you have unsharpened spots.
Maybe with more strokes you can equal that out.

Re: Sharpmaker?

Edward, same for me.

My explanation is that the flat side is not flat but curved.
Therefore the edge does not get good/sufficient contact.

But I am still new to sharpening and I sharpen normally only a few minutes, not half an hour to an hour.

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

Does anyone have an educated guess on when the spy27 P3 LW will come out? Or any of the models at all? I know that spyderco officially stopped doing estimates. Just curious if there has been anything unofficial? Officially when the next reveal happens all models should be delivered. But from reveal...

Re: Out of the Box - Behind the Scenes: Quality Results

Yes, the quality and design is amazing.
Without them the knife world would look different and not that advanced as it is now.

There are some shop tour videos available on YouTube.

Re: Serrated H-1 vs. Serrated LC200N?

@wartstein
Blade geometry is also important.

4,8 more, not 100% clear but I think also LC200N only.

I would say LC200N is min. 30% better also in SE.

I am right handed but I am opening and closing my knives with both hands.

Re: Watu...AKA Lil Chokwe

No idea what people are complaining about on the Compression-lock I had that issue at the Lil Native. If that front choil were 2mm bigger it could worked as flipper tab. If you use a bit of force you could get the finger in an open it by pressing straight on that portion of the blade. But, the real...

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

A straight razor must be sharp out of the box - I have no doubt Spyderco cant do that. Second, I prefer a carbon steel (e.g. Maxamet) which gets really sharp. Carbon, rusting steels are sharper and easier to sharpen. I sharpened my straight razors and also get them professionally sharpened and still...

Forum knife 2020 - steel poll

It seems that in the final poll we are choosing between
Shaman
UK Pen
Lil Native
and one secret contender :-)

Now, we should talk steel.
I selected these because of 20 in the name, S90V (obviously), or they were introduced in 2020.
Also 2 tool steels are included.

Looks cool, and I generally love to see more thinner-blade-stock knives!
Definitely.
A Para 3 TB (thin blade) would be awesome :D
Opinel has thinner blades and they also do to break or bend so easy... :/
