Will wood normally corrode knives?

I'm thinking of making a little box to put a SS D4 in (it's a gift.)

I was thinking red oak, maple, or walnut.

Does anyone know if seasoned wood will cause SS to corrode?

The costs are no secret. There is a $25 set-up charge for each type of knife you're having engraved. After that, you're free to do whatever you want in terms of text. After that it is $3/side. So this knife was $31. I believe that if I had 5 identical knives and engraving, it would be $25+10*$3 = $6...

He has not yet received it. The joke's on me if he visits this site! :D

It will be at least a month or so. Probably closer to 6 weeks. I am considering making him a little oak and walnut box for it.

"can they ingrave just blades if the handles arent metal?" Yes. They use a computer controlled laser-engraver. The operator is free to do whatever. For example, my mockups had the text on the handle in a straight line. I just added a note saying, "Please make this match the curve of the handle" and ...

I've never heard the term "clampack." I bet that's the impervious hinged plastic container that's melted together to discourage shoplifting. One of the worst cuts I ever received was trying to manhandle one of those open with some shears. The plastic bit me hard. I've never tried to open one of thos...

I racked two servers today. Lots of bags to open. My Delica had no trouble poking right through.

Pics of scoutmaster's knife!

Some time ago I asked for opinions about a knife for our scoutmaster. After much knee-bent running about, I decided on a SS Delica. Here it is!

Yah I was under the assumption a 1/4" or something was being snapped off.

The only thing I'd recommend is that you jam something in the kerf behind the knife so the tire can't close on the blade.

"no I think thats your logic" No, it's yours. I just took it to the extreme. Just because I have a knife in my pocket doesn't mean it is appropriate for every task. I gather from your postings that you feel that a pocket knife is a suitable tool for cutting thick, tough, and potentially filthy (abra...

"Thogh back to the only use the right tool for the job. If we are supposed to do this why do you guys have pocket knives?"

I would wager that I can cut a concrete block in half with my Delica. Therefore, according to your logic, it is the right tool for the job.

I'd use a saw to cut a tire in half. Or some shears.

2x $150 ea = $300/month.

My wife spends more on that on her quilting. :eek:

I hated the Native ergonomics. In my hand, there was only one way to comfortably hold it, and that was the big stabby way.

I missed the original thread, but I bet if you don't get your knife back, it will get 'lost' from storage.

You can crack walnuts in one hand. The trick is to put TWO in your hand, and squeeze. They'll break against each other. :cool:

Thanks all. I'm going to go with a SS Delica. There's plenty of room for engraving and the Delica is a good first knife, after all.

Edit - for simplicity's sake, I ordered it from Spyderco directly.

My son, who is supremely practical, can't believe I'd spend $50 on a Delica. The gist of the discussion is: me: "mmm Delica" him: "Buy two 25 dollar knives so if you lose one you have a backup" me: "What if you need the one in your hand to work Right Now" him: "Dude, you're a computer programmer.
