"Extension" or "Extend"

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

VG-10 would be great. Stain resistant and relatively tough. Easy to get very sharp.
I don't see many using their Ayoob to break down 400ft of cardboard!
154CM or better yet the CPM version would also be a very appropriate steel choice.

Re: Mirror polished edges - Which steels are better (and worst) for taking them?

I don't find ZDP rust prone at all but then my sweat is not nearly as manly as Vivi's! (Just kidding Vivi ;) I live in the desert southwest and have had very little rusting with ANY steel. I just wipe the blades dry after washing off gunk. I have a natural patina forming on K390, M4, 52100, and very...

Re: Mirror polished edges - Which steels are better (and worst) for taking them?

I predominately favor carbide rich tool steels and mostly finish in the 400 to 600 grit range. My sole exception to this is ZDP-189 as it seems to benefit from a highly refined mirror polish.

Re: What’s up with the military?

The Military is one of my favorites and I still have and use the ComboEdge S30V Black G-10 which I got in September 2005 for $103! There were 7 Military models released from May 2016 to February 2019 all with CQI enhancements: Military CTS-204P Dark Green G-10 C36GGRP KnifeWorks (USA) - MAY 2016 Mi...

Re: Finally ordered that Lone Wolf Distributor's Endura

I had a similar idea but mine included a CE Endura swap. CE blade fit fine with good lock engagement but the last inch of blade strikes the back spacer upon closing. Not sure if this is because of differences in the blade profile or the kick. There is definitly a difference in the backspacer with th...

Re: Rex 45 sharpening

Carbide rich- you're gonna want CBN or diamond stones. You'll get the greatest working edge with a more coarse edge finish. 600 grit seems about right.

Re: Who edc's their Endura?

Almost always carry either a Mille or an E4.
On duty at the fire station it is always a CE Endura.
Right at this moment it's an SG2 Endura; yesterday was a ZDP Endura, day before that was a 52100 Mille. And on it goes.......

Re: Spyderco in use, review/feedback thread

Excuse my newness to the forum, hopefully I am not bringing up something that has been re-hashed endlessly. I see a lot of side-by-side or side-by-side-by-side comparisons, with exhaustive cutting and comparison of the resulting edges/damages. My question is this, given the different properties of ...

Re: Cruwear Endura

There has been no word. I thought for sure we would have seen a Grey/Satin Cruwear Endura or Dragonfly by now as a follow up to last year's Delica. Or at least a rerun of the Delica given the popularity. It sold out within hours/minutes at every dealer, and most dealers limited it to 1 per customer...
