Come to think of it HoB, I think that Sal mentions something about this on the Sharpmaker VHS tape, doesn't he :confused: . Yes, he says they come from the factory at about 30 degrees. It's right after he recommends that you sharpen most knives at the 40 degree angle because most steels won't hold ...

Sal, thanks for valuing the input of your customers enough to even consider this... Spyderco is one of the few companies I know that actually listens to their customers, the only other one being AGD. And if they ever come out I'll definately buy one <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=midd...

I'm a huge Case fan. I'm going to get a Russlock as soon as possible, because the lever actually rivals the Spydie hole on small knives, and of course, it's made by Case. Man, that knife would be awesome with a clip! Anyway, you won't be dissapointed with a Case knife, and they really aren't that ex...

Definitely my Delica. The tip and clip have both been broken off, but it still holds an edge.

I usually have a balisong in my hand where they can't see it and I flip it out the second they look like they're going to attack or try to scare me. It usally deters them. (of course I never do it to people I know, but you never know what strangers will do)

Thanks everybody. You're not barging in at all, ATE, and thanks for the suggestion. I just knew that Sword and Shield was a big Case fan and thought he might know.

Do not take any kind of knife with a lock mechanism that is easy to close one handed. (Like a linerlock. It is extremely easy to close for someone who knows how, but people who don't are always telling me they can't figure out how to close it, so they start playing with it and getting careless.) I r...

Do you know the name of the locking mechanism and how to properly open and close it? 4. Are you going to ...

Due to the fact that I will not carry it on a regular basis, I ground the tip at about a 10 degree angle and now it's like a chisel, with the broken-off tip just as sharp as the rest of the blade. (not that I'm stupid enough to use a knife as a chisel) I also dug out an old fine-grit EZ Lap Diamond ...

You mean like the grip tape they use on skateboards? Or is it a less abrasive version? That stuff will take your skin off if you drew it fast enough IWB, because it's like sandpaper.

How can people take such awful care of such expensive knives?

Someone just gave me a Case 31048 (not sure of the name of the pattern) in CV with the blade covered in rust and the tip broken off. They even managed to break the liner, because the blade doesn't even have that characteristic Case "snap" when it opens and closes. I removed all the rust I could, but...

How many of you have knives with 154-cm steel?

I was just curious, because I know nothing about this steel except that Microtech and M.O.D. both seem to use it a lot. So, please let me know what you like and don't like about it. Thanks.

Just in case, bring a SASE along with you to mail your knife back to your house in case they don't allow it on board. I don't see why a Cricket would be offensive, I mean most people seem to think it's cute. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Good luck and have a fun time...
