Re: What's the lowest edge retention steel you'd carry?

I dont mind because I'm a sharpening guy. Anyway I like AUS8 as low edge retention but it takes a very sharp edge with minimal efforts.

Re: Is ZDP 189 a stainless steel or not?

It has a big content of chrome but it's not as stainless as foe example 440A.
My delica zdp has started a pitting process due to food cutting and carry it in pocket.

Re: Mini Dyad C39P&S micarta - very hard to close!

Open the blade and let's drop inside a couple of drops of oil.
Have you use it for cutting fruits? Let the juice reach the inner of the knife?
Be aware that some oil could dirt the micarta

Re: Uk Penknife Maxamet?

I have the Para 3 in s110v. I bought the urban k390 because I wanted to try some exotic steels. I'd love a Para 3 in Cru-Wear and Maxamet but it will be quite some time before I could afford them, if ever. A less expensive platform like the UKPK in those steels would be AWESOME! I would snatch them...

Re: Spyderco Chaparral titanium help (put the knife back together)

If your near me here in Australia you are welcome to send it to me and I’ll put it back together for you. I li...

Re: Taking apart knives

I'm so sorry Sal but taking apart knife (except for OTF/autos) is not a rocket science, just some screws. I just finished right now to take apart my delica that after 7 years of daily work needs some cleaning/greasing and polishing. It was a surprise to see that the internal liners were rust free :...

Re: More K390?

For me K390 on Caly3/UKPK/Dragonfly/PM2.
I have the Urban K390 and it's a little jewel.
In the past I always avoided carbon steel because of the manteniance but nowadays I'd like to have the choice for each model of knife between stainless or carbon steel :)

Re: Caly3 Sprint Run Questions/Help Needed

Personally I avoid the pivot to enter in contact with water always , specially in the case of carbon steel. I only use a brush and camellia oil, if you proceed to remove the pivot and take out the blade you can clean it with lint free cloth and put grease to the pivot hole. Oil unfortunately has the...

UKPK GIN1 sharpening

Hello, I got years ago an UKPK with GIN1 steel, I liked very much the knife and the blade shape (it's the old hollow grind leaf). Unfortunately it arrives with a completely blunt edge, it was the first brand new knife that comes to me unsharpened. I've used it anyway for many tasks where a razor sha...
