UKPK, because it's both affordable and legal for Spyderco to ship anywhere.

Yes, for sure! Look at the Waterway. It’s pigeon holed as a no rust knife and Heaven forbid anyone would want one in any blade steel that could potentially rust. :eek: :p :p This is one of the reasons the Siren has a slightly less obvious water reference. I designed both the waterway and the Siren ...

BKF and ScotchBrite are my choice for the Spydie stones and I have had success cleaning Edge pro/Hapstone diamond stones using an eraser.

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

In no particular order: XHP, straightforward to sharpen, holds an edge well. H1, durable, can be used in any adverse environment, easy to bring back to a fine edge on the Sharpmaker and in SE just keeps on cutting. BD-1, a no nonsense stainless that achieves a happy balance between edge durability a...

Very cool dye job! Do you remember what color RIT you used? Liquid or powder?
Sorry can’t remember the colour, may have been burgundy? :rolleyes:
But I can remember it was a powder. Hope this helps.

A Pile of Salt. The knives are all precariously balanced on each other and a few went for a swim a number of times when the wind caught them during the shoot ... not that they seemed to care! Two more ended up in the naughty corner and don't appear in the image - my Spyderhawk (the orange handle tu...

Re: Yojimbo 2 wharncliffe with straight edge vs. curved sword cutting philosophy

Interesting thread, it seems to me, after looking at Mr Janich's post on the 11 Bravo knife and reading Sal's on the Yojimbo design, that the broad head arrow relies on a similar geometry to achieve pretty much the same effect. All be it more focused/localised.
