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

I think you hit a nerve here Sal, this generated some excellent feedback. 1) zdp 189 2) s110v 3) zdp 189 Number four is 20cv. Everything corrodes here. The top three give great performance at the edge, and I am able to stay on top of any rust specks. These will form on the zdp. I have had vg10 and 4...

Re: Knife opened in my pocket.

Bloke, This summer my S110v military came open about 1/4 way when it was clipped in my rt front pocket. Poked about 1 1/2 inches thru the pocket and pants and stabbed my thumb as I was walking. I think I might have disturbed the blade when I was digging in that pocket for a flashlight. I now mind th...

Thunder,
Shoot it full of WD 40 and set it on end somewhere to drain for a day.

Re: What was your first Spyderco?

Salt I clip it, in '07 or '08. I was into free diving and using a fb Cressi. Saw some pic of Aussies working on open ocean pens, farming tuna. They were using what looked like se enduras. With rust splotches. I figured I could do the same, and when the blade rusted away, just get a new one. My subse...

Re: Sus410 Heavy scratched by my sink sponge

Use a Dobie as the kitchen sink sponge. Doesn't scratch.

Re: Free hand sharpening techniques

Anagarika has something here. Use the spine height off the stone as your guide. Put the spine on the same place on your thumb pad (or other finger) for each stroke and graze the bottom of that finger across the stone as you stroke. Keep the spine placement on the finger pad consistant and the slight...

Re: The Dodo 2019

I too would like to try a Dodo. My suggestion would be for Spyderco to look into producing a version in bd1N. I have been auditioning this steel in a chef's knife for two months and I am impressed by it. Perhaps that might also keep the end cost down. I like the exotic steels mentioned in the posts ...

Re: Para won't stay sharp

Kjav-
Get a loupe.
Look at the edge.
Look at it when you think it is sharp. Look at it when you think it has come dull.
The loupe will show you what is happening.
All else is conjecture.

Re: Sharpening question

Brackish, Gatco and lansky depend on consistency in how they are clamped for results. The first time you sharpen on them, make a tracing outline on paper of the knife in the clamp. The next times you sharpen, put the knife and clamp on top of the tracing to make sure they match before tightening the...

Re: Guides for freehand sharpening

Woodpuppy, get the 12dollar blue wedges. They will help you stay within a degree or two constant while you develop technique. Get large stones, it is easier to maintain consistent angle on a large stone, even with the wedges. Use your sharpie and loupe. As mentioned, my freehand on shapton glass sto...
