I just recently (last week) got some of the green "veritas blade honing compound" from lee valley tools. This is a block of stuff that resembles modelling clay although it is harder. I rubbed this onto a piece of leather strop with it. It works GREAT! I mean super sharp. Very smooth polished edge. I...

That's an excellent choice. I carry mine everyday. I think I oughta buy a couple to put back since they've been discontinued...

Hope you enjoy it. Be careful, they're VERY sharp out of the box...

I got my very first spydie, a plainedge worker, for $25. I didnt know it was such a good deal at the time. I also got a well used Military for $26. After a brief visit to the warranty and repair department, it's good as new (and it has that nice broke-in feeling).

Any word on the price and availability of the Impala? Will the "real" one be made in G-10 too?

Thought you might be interested in how my family removed the husks from walnuts. (doesn't involve spydies though) My grandparents had a gravel driveway and we would collect the walnuts and leave them in the driveway or several days. As cars came and went, the hulls would get "smooshed" (technical te...

The worker was my first spydie and I carried one for several years. A friend lost his plainedge and couldnt find another so I traded him mine. I bought a serrated one but never carried it all that much.. I sold it last week. I have gotten used to FRN and G10 and actually prefer them now (Calypso Jr ...

I spent a summer working with a missions group in Zaire. I was walking through a village one day and a mother was holding her child. She pointed at me and said "mundele". After that I noticed that lots of people would call me "mundele". I assume that it is the equivalent of "gringo". I hope it isnt ...

You oughta go on over to Smoky Mountain Knife Works. Last time I was there they didn't have a huge collection of spydies, but it was worth the drive (I was in Knoxville anyway)
