Topic: Steel vs. Edge Type
Replies: 4

I think one aspect of knife sharpness is how fine the grain of the steel is. The finer the grain the better the push cut on a PE knife. But if the grain is courser then it will be a better slicer. Weather or not the knife is serrated, seems to me, to be a different set of characteristics. Honing a k...

Well, I have to add my two cents… I love the Lum Chinese. It is my favorite spidie so far. The bad thing (or good thing depending on how you look at it) is I use mine everyday at work and it is staring to wear out! I is unfortunate such a great knife was discontinued. I don’t have the heart to us th...

That is a great design! Can I have one?!?! But I do have a small problem with de-sharpening a knife. I know it might seem to be safer for your little ones but, a dull knife takes more strength to use and thereby increasing the pressure put on the object being cut. When that happens the chances for a...

A 4” blade is the average leingh.

General purpose chores: Cutting food, opening packages, cutting tape, string etc.

I began carrying a knife when I was 11 years old.

KX06 one time only!

I just learned, from my dealer, that the KX06 kitchen utility knives were only a one time run! I can't believe it! I was going to buy two sets for two different weddings! Now I will have to find other gifts! They are far superior to the regular K04. Please produce the KX06 and drop the K04. If I am ...

Except for the Ronnin there seems to be a lack of blades that can be comfortably used with the blade in. I would like to see more folders that I could use with handle in the normal position but with the blade facing me. The Zowda (spelling could be wrong) model is a great example of being able to ha...

When you start using your new diamond rods, don't push hard. You will dislodge the diamonds... Then you will end up buying a new set!

This question is off topic but I just had to ask... Little Claw, what type of Kung Fu do you study and how long have you been studying? I have studied Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu for 2.5 years.

A grasshopper goes into a bar and hops up on the bar stool. The bartender looks at him and says, "Hey! we have a drink named after you!"
The grasshopper replies, "Who would want to name a drink Bob?"
