Re: They're everywhere!

M4 was my intro to “exotic” steels, and I still have much more time with it than either K390 or REX45. I sharpen on ceramic rods/stones, though I reprofile on CBN rods. Order of difficulty in my limited experience sharpening all 3 is M4 -> REX45 -> K390. K390 edge holding is better than either of th...

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

You know I saw the comment about "if you have the right tool for the job, you'll never break it". That is entirely true and some genuine wisdom for sure. Words well spoken. Someone else once said that experience is proportional to the amount of ruined equipment you have left behind. This is only tr...

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

Yep. M4 > M2. M2 is as good as it ever was, but the constant march of higher spec steel leaves perfectly capable steels in the dust. I’m guilty of chasing a spec too, as long as the sharpening’s good ;)

Nice! One of my last BMs is a 710HSSR, for a long time M2 was the bees knees :cool:

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

I learned the loaner lesson with a Benchmade auto. Loanee cut through wire ties on a child’s toy; I thought they were just zip ties. Big chip, lots of time on the stones to repair. Now I just say NO! I’ve busted fine tips off, but quit misusing knives this way some time ago :D I dropped my first Spy...

Re: K390 IS "The M4 Killer"

I am quite happy with cruwear. It is so easy to get great results sharpening with ceramics. I have the ladybug in K390 and reprofiling to 15dps was a real chore. The steel seems to perform well, but it’s the most work I ever want to put into sharpening. I do not want to get into new sharpening gear...

The Vicky is the lightest option, and the least expensive to replace.

Re: How do you carry your knives and why?

Something big clipped in my back right pocket, mostly a millie; something smaller in the watch pocket, like the Urban. Usually something else in the front right pocket, by itself to avoid stupid human tricks. I keep my ladybug on a lanyard and drop the knife in my shirt pocket. It has a quick detac...

Re: POLL: Return of the SpyderSaw? Single bladed or as part of a Dyad?

As said above, saw blades wear out and need replacing. I don’t think Spyderco could compete with the Bahco Laplander or Boreal21, or the really cool bushcraft buck saws. The blades in these saws are inexpensive to replace and more importantly, readily available. As great as the SAK saw can be, it is...

Re: Idea for a complement to the sharpmaker

This is my rudimentary "3d-printed" prototype. I like it because it's simple. It is really slim and fits with the Sharpmaker. https://i.imgur.com/BM5B36A.jpg It easily fits four additional rods. I didn't have the patience to make triangular slots for them, but they should have that. https://i.imgur...

Movie night :) First time watching GoldenEye, though I used to play it on N64 as a kid. Goldeneye came out in 1995... define kid? Making me feel old :rolleyes: Lol I'll be thirty next year. Ah... the game came out in 97... even worse :D I was into my second or third junior year of college by then...
