Rising from the ashes...

3-31-2005.

Dang, has it really been that long? I blame a lost password, getting engaged, getting married, finishing my Master's and finishing my first year of medical school.

But I'm back. :)

Hi. ;)

Well, I went through and read the posts in question.

Fisher, you're forgiven. You made a mistake, and you've atoned for it. I've been here lots of years, seen lots of flames come and go. Yours isn't a problem. :)

UPS has messed me up so many times, that I won't deal with them anymore. One day, I was standing in my kitchen, facing the picture window- big dang window- and I make eye contact with the UPS guy who has my stuff. I start walking to the door, and he's already put a "Tried to deliver" tag on the door...

Mine's actually leftovers from HS. Our mascot was the Knight, so I figured S&S was a good way to pay homage to that. :)

I've de-serrated knives before, and it's a tough job, even with mildly serrated, primarily straight edges. It can be done, but requires near-infinite patience and an insanely steady hand. Doing such on a compound curve as a Harpy scares even me off.

SpyderKnut, if you need any workout tips or advice, ask away. I went from 5-11, 260# down to a muscled 220#, with more to go.

I simply want to take all the good and light I see in this world, and reflect it onto those I care about.

I use something similar to 4ster. Just lean a coarse stone against the sticks, or tape a strip of coarse sandpaper to one.

Howdy Demon! Welcome to }{Land.

I would advise sending it to Spyderco for regrinding. If the price is too much for you, then you could reprofile the tip with a file or Dremel tool and a coarse stone.

I'd reshape it and use it as a beater knife. What more can you do to it? ;)

Make sure any and all burrs are removed. I could sharpen a spoon and cut more than 2.5 feet of cardboard! My record's 145 linear feet of corrugated, using a convexed D2 Queen #11, and periodic stropping.

Chin2 or the LumTo. If he breaks either, it'd surprise me.

Now, teach a lighter touch, for :spyder: 's sake! I use slippies at work, some mighty thin blades, and I've never detipped one.

I snipe on Scout materials simply because everyone else does. My comp. clock is set to exact EBay time, and I usually can bid precisely 1 second before the auction closes.

I like really hard steels. I use 60-61 RC at work every day, and it never chips out on me. VG-10 in 60-61 would be sweet, as would be D2. :)
