Great thread Vivi.

It would be nice if you updated post #1 going forward. That way one does not have to scroll through all the other posts.

Thank you.
That's the plan. Hunting down Military 2 info is what gave me the idea to compile this info in one place.

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

^Absolutely true. That serrated Spartan I started carrying yesterday? Already damaged the edge. I tested the main blade out on a small stick to see how well it makes feather sticks. That tiny PE portion near the tip was rippled, with visible chips and bends. Only took a minute to fix on my DMT fine,...

Re: Swick 5 ETA?

If you've never tried to EDC a fixed blade the Swick is a good place to start. Incredibly compact, very discreet on a belt, can clip it to a pocket, or carry it in your pocket, etc.

Wonder which one I'll be carrying more when it comes out, the Swick or my new Street Beat.....

Re: Which steels did you carry today?

Street Beat (VG10) and a Victorinox Spartan (SE!) for me yesterday and today. Totals updated. Cruwear and Maxamet are finally on the list, surprised how long that took. M390 starting to gain momentum, that was another one that surprised me with how few responses it got. XHP surprising me with its ve...

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

I always found ZDP to burr extremely little, sharpened up real well for me for such a high edge retention steel. Never did try it in SE though.

This Spartan is a pretty cool knife for $15. Might replace my Micra.

Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

I really like the Victorinox Soldier serrations out towards the tip of the blade. Funny, I really want to try a large, one hand Victorinox, but I want plain edge. Combo edge is not for me, and on the front serrations - even worse. I do like my fully serrated Spartan, though, and it has the small pl...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Forgot to include a picture of that POS stone: https://files.catbox.moe/ws52h5.jpg The boss showed me the knife he was carrying and asked if I would sharpen it for him. He said it was his son's. His son thought he had lost it. I think it is a Benchmade Mini Griptilian in 154CM will take it to the At...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I was picking up some stuff at a hardware store and I noticed some $3 combination benchstones. No box, brand name, nothing, but I figured for $3 why not mess around with one? I think I'm going to see what I can do using just that stone on a really dull knife. May even make a video with it.

Re: Smith stones vs DMT stones.

speaking of norton, has anyone tried using their triangle rods on a sharpmaker? I was always curious if they worked.

Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

Fenix PD25 meets your criteria for half your budget, aside from the colored light option. It's about the size of a bic lighter. Has a secure pocket clip. Waterproof. Can be set to low for when its night time at camp. Has four levels of brightness, from low to super tacticool bright. Strobe function....

What about a SE Tasman paired with a SE Pacific Salt? :D

Which steels did you carry today?

I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where we track which steels we carry every day. At the end of every week I'll tally up the responses. I'll keep a running total for each week, and a grand total for the entire thread. Include any knife you carried for a good portion of the day. Leave out tools ...

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

You're going on a tanget as much as we are ;) Subtle play does not make a lock insecure. My D2 Military had worse vertical play than any lockback I've owned from Spyderco but the lock never failed to keep the knife open. My Para 2 developed vertical play worse than my Police 3, 4 and 4 LW....never f...
