Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Ugghh. Everytime I get an email notice this thread has been updated I get excited to see the new deal that has been posted in this dedicated "Crazy good deals" thread only to find out it is another update on someone's shipping or impression of a recent purchase ... such a let down.
Seriously guys.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Our favorite torx bit manufacturer Wiha is doing 50% off on their site, couple code 50KCELEBRATE. If I wasn’t furloughed right now I’d be buying a screwdriver and bit set. Thanks for posting. I had my eye on a larger set of screwdrivers for quite a while. This allowed me to pull the trigger and thr...

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

I voted Maxamet I have all but the Rex45. I hated Maxamet sharpening at first. I have a Manix LW and Para 3 in it. I typically use a wicked edge and it's proprietary stones. I got edge chipping a lot. After 3rd sharpening I learned a lighter pressure was king. I probably was getting past the factory...

Re: Does anyone have ANY info about where the GB2 is?

They are still in stock at a Blades Canada. I picked one up in Dec as a Christmas present to myself and checked a couple of days ago they still showed stock. I live in Canada but If you are in the US and don't mind shipping from Canada the dollar exchange rate right now gets you a competitive price ...

Re: Crunch-Time Hardware? Spyders For Trying Times?

Not carrying anything different but certainly having lots of new found time to sharpen. Between folders and kitchen knives I've managed to bring about 12 blades so far back to hair whittling sharp. Probably about 1/3 of the knives in my house but all my favourites.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I've bought from them a couple of times. I live in Canada but still internet sale and shipped. Both good experiences and yes all legit.
Just got a GB2 a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Gayle Bradley

I just picked up a LNIB Gayle Bradley 1 off the secondary market and a new Gayle Bradley 2 from a retailer here in Canada who still has stock. I plan on only keeping the one I prefer most. Have had the #2 for a couple of weeks just to fondle it. The #1 I won't get till next weekend. I hope I don't l...

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

From ones I have tried.

CPM M4 (love the sticky edge it takes, lasts, easy to sharpen)
CPM Cruwear (takes a good edge, easy to sharpen, fairly resistant to staining / rust)
K390 (I think this is going to be my 3rd but haven't used it as much as the others to know for sure)

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I really appreciate the pics and info. The "issues" seem really nothing for a pocket knife. Unless maybe it is just to put behind glass and be admired.
This to me is really a great deal !!

I'm trying my best not to buy this hoping to hear something firm about a Para 3 with the same configuration.

Re: Cru-wear Delica

I noticed that my Cruwear Delica is developing a patina quite a bit faster than any of my Golden Cruwear models are. Under basically the same conditions and care. I wonder if the heat treat protocol is is slightly different between Seki and Golden? Anyone else notice this? https://i.imgur.com/0rrJV...

Re: To M4 or not to M4...

No. While I don't have anything in Rex45, I really love the way m4 sharpens and performs. One of my favorites.

Re: Bento Box Something Something....

Is the Bento Box announcement not a Para 2 in Elmax with Foliage Green G10 ? That is what I see on their website showing as not in stock but a link to the FB and IG pictures shown in the first post of this thread?? I'm confused ... Maybe an old listing? I've never purchased there nor really visited ...

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

CPM M4
PD#1 / Cruwear
K390

I tend to like the tool steels. I just find I can get them sticky sharp and I like the look of a natural patina to me is just an aesthetic bonus. The Cru-wear seems pretty stain resistant though even with very little care.
