I am not "real scientist", I learned how to do sharpening and many follows my steps. This method works, even it does not use Spyderco tools. It is possible to whittle hair by using Spyderco sharpeners, but no one put together any guide on how to do so. Sorry. Here it is - pretty simple: http://nozh2...

You oiled it and then touch it with your hand when it was closed - it is pretty clear from the marks on the blade. Part with you touch has less or no oil, part of the blade which was inside handle has more oil. Thin layer of oil change blade surface a little and make it appear different. Nothing wro...

What makes SB stand out among all the other great steels such as M4, ZDP-189, XHP, S30V,etc? Actually I pre-ordered the SB Dfly and am pretty excited about it. Thanks! Hitachi YSS manufacturing plant known for high quality steels and on the edge technologies. Also it is quite healthy to my knowledg...

This subject has probably been beat to death but I haven't paid a lot of attention to it. I just put the super blue D'fly2 on pre-order so now I am more interested. All opinions are welcome regarding edge retention, how keen an edge does it take, etc. M4 is easy to sharpen and takes a very sharp ed...

Obviously it has a unique pattern, but does it offer any advantages that regular steel doesn't? Is the hefty price tag worth it? Vikings use pattern in their swords to make them stronger. Combination of soft iron and hard steel with certain spring like pattern adds some spring like properties. Mode...

In general all Carpenter steel are much better then Crucible. Even CPM S30V version made by Carpenter left original CPM S30V miles behind. Think about this - on my opinion only way for Spyderco to make CPM S30V compete with CTS-XHP and CTS-204P is to ship those american supersteels to Taiwan - acros...

Pathetic!

Currently situation on knife market is like in Soviet Union - most of the knives produced are made out of poor quality steels which no one want to have, however industry refuse to go into well known high performance steels but rather keep wasting materials and resources on low performers. Sometimes ...

Stripping chemically coating will expose unfinished blade surface. Manufacturers save a lot on polishing by hiding raw, after grind blade under one or other coat. I am trying to avoid knives with coating - it looks nice NIB but with use it get scratched, fall off etc - depends on quality and looks u...

Hitachi Aogami - blue label steel is one of two major steels (other one Shirogami - white label steel) of choice for top custom knives in Japan. In US everybody came up with different names - now it is super blue somehow, but it is just because Hitach pack it in blue paper. Japanese lately tend to l...

Call me a noob, but how on earth do you do that? That edge is phenomenal. This edge is mirror polished - I do not see anything special about that. Chromium Oxide compound on leather will do this in 20-30 passes after EF DMT, several days of cycling is not really needed for this. Polish itself does ...

In general diamonds can stand any coating just fine. I sharpen a lot of blade with different coating - no problem. Only problem I know with diamonds is rapid wearing if push too hard - but this depends on diamonds quality. There is monocrystalline and polycrystalline diamonds. First is whole diamond...

Sharpmaker will not be able to remove a lot of steel. If your edge is 30 degree or less already, then it will work fine. However if edge is like 32 degree - you will never bring it to 30 degree with sharpmaker. Amount of steel it takes off is too small, even with diamond rods which are low quality d...
