Re: Forum sprint run?

As far as I know, yes.

It was a gray PM2 with spyder inlet.
Was available for months.

For me, the only realistic forum knife that could sell fast at the moment is a Slysz Bowie.

Re: Serrated on Sharpmaker - Getting Duller ???

Draw the edge over a piece of wood.
Then sharpen again mainly on the scallop side with the gray stones.
You can use 40 deg to get faster results.

You csn try to form a burr. Should be feelable from the non scallop side

No pressure. If the rods are very dirty clean them in the dishwasher.

Re: Has anyone tried sanding the scales on the Para 3 LW for more texture?

@metaphoricalsimile

I did not but I can imagine you need a very rough one. I would do 90 deg. to the scales (similar to the jimping.)

You can also use a small file/rasp

Got my roadie. Super design, easy to open, not so easy to close - that's a good thing.

2021 is their 45th anniversary.

That might be a reason for that change.

Re: Newest Teal Exclusive....Para3 LW

1500 is a hugh number.
S90V might mean it's not cheap.

Re: MT31P - Mule Team Featuring CPM S45VN - Release Date

Had them in the chart. After payment put in, the knives were gone.

The whole "buying" experience overall was bad.
It's the only place where you are informed after the payment that it's out of stock.

I have a griptillian in s30v and I'm not impressed with how quickly it goes dull.
The S30V is outstanding in comparison to other brands.
I would give it a try.

My love for the Para 3 is now gone.

It's replaced by the Para 3 lightweight.
