Re: How often do you sharpen your babys

I've been lazy lately. After a 12 hour shift I don't feel like getting my knife bag out of the trunk (it's heavy). I've been stripping back my Shaman as much as possible, but I'll be busting out the stones again soon. Frequency of sharpening completely depends on specifics of use.

Re: St Nicks Knives Exclusive 4V Shaman - Available 9/19/19

People are crazy with these prices on eBay People pay it. Supply and demand. They have something that is virtually impossible to get, and someone, somewhere, with plenty of money wants it. I simply can't pay $400 for a knife. Especially when I know it was $210 5 seconds prior. I could absolutely af...

Anybody else use Spyderco ceramic benchstones ?

I plan on getting a medium one day. I wish they made all three stones in 8x3". I think only the UF stone comes in that size.

H1, very surprising edge retention, rust free, and killer toughness. Hard to beat.

They really shouldn't call it "add to cart".

TRY taking this knife out of my cart while I'm in line to pay.

TRY

This is disappointing. Probably not caring about exclusives and sprints much anymore. I'll stick to production models.

Re: oH tHe TiP iS ToO FrAGilE

I've broken off the tip of almost every pm2 and military I've ever owned, and I never used them for prying. All it takes is one little tap on steel and that's it. I could choose not to use my knife in any and all situations that could result in edge damage, but I'd much rather just use my knife norm...

Re: Native Chief in CRUWEAR???

Still never saw the Military in Maxamet. I'll "settle" for K390 if it halfs the price. I'd love a S110V version but PLEASE MAKE OTHER THAN PURPLE. I refuse to pay money for that color and maybe my opinion doesn't matter to anyway but I have to say it. Anyone else wish there was a Spyderco custom sh...

Re: Native Chief in CRUWEAR???

No thank you. Chief need steel that is more towards pure edge retention such as 10V, S110V. This is high efficiency slicer, I think it would benefit more from 10V then some tough steel. While cruwear works for any model (that isn't a salt), I have to agree with this. At least give us a high perform...

Yep, too bad DMT doesn't make a XXC bench stone.

They do, but only the 8" continuous surface (Dia-Sharp) type, the model number is D8XX.
Thanks, I didn't know.

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Thanks for the detailed rundown, Pelagic - yeah I run a similar edge on S30V at the moment - a coarse edge, finished with a very light touch, then a few passes each on 3, 1, 0.25 and 0.1 um diamond and CBN strops. Am I right in thinking that you don't tend to take your Shaman out to work on the boa...

Re: Problem sharpening a Mannix 154CM

Sharpening can seem impossible if you're not hitting the apex. It's like trying to start a fire when you're not even throwing the match in the right spot. It's a fundamental mistake. The sharpie method works, but I've never used it. I would have learned faster if I had though.

Re: How low do you go?

I take both my Spydercos to 17 degrees off the flat grind. Since I use my knife for serious work, I'm cognizant of the diminished strength of steeper angles. But even more important, a shallower angle diminishes the aesthetic appeal of an otherwise pretty knife. For me, it makes no sense to go stee...
