Re: 1,000,000 Post Celebration Contest!

That sheet would make one hell of a piece of wall art... What does the spyderco community mean to me... When I got my first delica in 98, the forum was information and knowledge to absorb... When I started posting and collecting, it was a brotherhood... When I truly started to appreciate the tools a...

Re: Tasman or Atlantic salt for kayaking?

Had a PE endura alongside my SE at work for about a month... same steel and long enough to give it a solid workout... the SE outperformed as the separate curves grab and change angles on the material as you pull rather than only a single plane in PE. PE CAN be sharpened to outperform on a pull for r...

Re: Tasman or Atlantic salt for kayaking?

Surfingringo: After 12yrs with the endura, I can use it blindfolded... but wasn't sure if the Pacific was a good choice.

Does the work hardening aspect of H1 help with edge retention on PE? Pretty much expecting this to live on the PDF with kydex.

Tasman or Atlantic salt for kayaking?

Hey everyone... I'm still around, just busy with classes for another month. Picked up a kayak for cheap, going to start using it this summer. Going through my gear here, and other than a light PDF and seeing if my small drybag fits without modifying anything... next up is a knife for the lake... Wou...

Re: Money Saving Tips

For a cheaper shave, locate an Injector. Runs just under a buck a blade, and the single edge gives a shave like a straight without having to pay attention. Been using a 1951 model the last 4-5yrs.

I've got a small 6"x1"x1/4" Ti prybar in my bag... and it really came in handy when we needed to pop the window on the elevator at the Legion to get the key out (yeah... the emergency key was ON the person trapped in the elevator).

Technically my first paycheck was $0.10 a paper and $0.02 a flyer... 250 houses and I had to stuff the paper myself the night before (sunday paper).

Minimum wage when I finally got that was $5.35 in 2000. 13yrs later I was making $48/hr, so I think my career's on the right pace.

Replies: 8

For instance my "sharpening" process finishes at a 1000 grit diamond stone, no matter how light you stroke you are perpetually chasing a burr (creating a new burr while knocking off another) so for me stropping is a crucial part of my routine. I don't plan on changing my routine just perfecting it,...

24yrs of sharpening, and I can't truly call myself a master because I still pick up some tricks and changes... I still use a stropping surface in my system, even though it's only the side of the case on my 303mf. I have made a couple full strops, and had a strop hanging all the time at my last place...

I find that the bigger the dog, the calmer and easier to handle it is.

It's the little 5lbs yappers I have a problem with. So far I've only come across 3 dogs that I didn't want to get close to, all 3 chihuahua's. The last one would have been just as happy to take my finger off as look at me.

Well if you wanna split hairs (pun intended) you have to be able to compare two knives of the same model and grind before you can even come close to a factual result here. If you compare a razor blade to ANY SE then yeah it's gonna out perform it but it's more because of the extremely thin edge geo...

A properly sharpened PE will outcut a SE in 95% of tasks.

Now we're talking a HIGHLY polished primary bevel, with a course microbevel.
