Re: Just the brown SM flats

I want to thank you all for the advice :D I think what I’ve been doing in my ignorance is micro-beveling the heck out of my knives when sharpening. I was under the assumption that almost all knives were 40°inclusive from the factory. (never assume it will get you in trouble every time) I think what ...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Ok, a few more questions... If when I sharpen ( on the Sharpmaker ) at a 40° inclusive and the sharpie is only being removed on the shoulder because the angle is too acute. Would it be better to just re-profile the knife to 40° inclusive for better cutting? Isn’t an edge angle greater than 40° undes...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Oh sorry one other thing...

Cleaning the stones?

How often and if I switch steels should I clean no matter what?

Another thing If you sharpen say for example H1 after M4 without cleaning the stones won’t you be grinding those M4 steel particles into the H1, then later could those particles rust?

Re: Just the brown SM flats

So I apologize but I have some really dumb questions. Do all Spyderco knives have a 40° inclusive edge from the factory thusly necessitating the use of the 40° side of the Sharpmaker to maintain that edge? If I use a sharpie on the blade and that sharpie is not removed within four or five passes am...

Re: Just the brown SM flats

I could use a couple of pointers. I can get my knives sharp but I’m not getting an edge anywhere near to hair splitting. I have an old Norton wet stone that I used before I bought the Sharpmaker. I only use the Sharpmaker now. I have the brown medium stones and white fine stones. I watched the Spyd...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

The only time I sharpen a brand new Spyderco or any knife for that matter is when it’s not shaving sharp.

Re: Spyderco Waterway vs Coldsteel Master Hunter 3v

I’ve never handled a Cold Steel Master Hunter. I think the Cold Steel Master Hunter very much resembles a couple of Fallkniven knives like the S1. Before the Waterway came about I was seriously considering purchasing a Fallkniven S1 with a laminated VG-10 blade, however fortunately it did not work o...

Re: Help with next purchase

Sorry, I didn't get notified this was approved. Thanks for approving it! I keep gravitating to the Para3 but backpedal because of the blade length. Though I don't know why. The PM2 is perfect in every way for me except I feel its a little big. I actually really like the proportions of the Bugout bu...

Re: How do you purchase an autonomy?

I love H1, wharncliffes, blacked out knives and big handles. The Autonomy has been on my radar for a year or so, but I'm not sure how to actually purchase one. I'm not Military or LEO but it would be 100% legal to carry and use where I live. But every site I've seen that has them in stock seems to ...

Re: Beards

It's interesting how beard hairs whiten faster than head hairs. At least in my observation. My older brother has had his beard and moustache, and his long hair, since around 1968-69, and has never been without it since. Jim Not for me... I only have a few gray whiskers when I grow my beard out and ...

Re: Parata Finally

Let me start by saying that I like the design of the Parata, however I do like the Ouroboros more. IMHO it’s the price point of this knife that makes it a no go. There are easily ten others Spyderco knives within $15 of the Parata’s price point with better steel and just as, if not more thought prov...
