What size torx for ladybug?

I'm thinking I read t5 somewhere but I'm just checking. I already have t6-10 but just need a smaller one for my ladybug :/ dang... I'll have to buy a whole set for just one!

Oh and if anybody knows where I could get a pretty cheap set that would be nice to.

Yes, the book says it want be as sharp as the 3 to 1 ratio method, but make for a stronger edge that want breakdown as quick and want need sharpening as often. And I think it worked pretty darn good! How does the book say to do it? Sounds like you used strokes much the same as a plain edge. Is that ...

The Sharpmaker got that sucker SHARP!!

I have been using my new Ladybug Salt 3 SE ever since I got it, well I finally decided to try and sharpen it up a little. So I grab the sharpmaker and marked the edge of my blade and did a couple of passes to see where I was hitting. Before I sharpened I looked over the SE section of the sharpmaker ...

I only have two, but I've kept them. I just think there cool to look at sometime... And brings back the memory of the day you got it! And I guess if your not using the knife you could put it back into it's box for "safe keeping", I always carry my knives though. :D

What I'm talking about is what material are hard on the serration tips or the whole serrated blade for that matter? I would like to know this so I could try and avoid those materials.

Serrations.... What are the "NO NO's"?

I have never owned a serrated blade... Until now, and I'm wonder what is bad stuff to cut with them? And are the serrations easy or hard to distort? And what are "no no" things to cut? Thank you.

Yeah, this is that 1% time. I put the knife down in the soap water and she couldn't see and didn't know it was in there. I think that 99% of the time, if an adult cuts themselves on a blade, it's their own fault. Any adult should know that blades require careful handling. The only exceptions that co...

It took mine around 2 weeks to get it all the way back to NC after getting sharpened (I had not bought the sharpmaker yet). But they do not inform you about send it back off or anything, I just walked outside one day and there was a box that said Spyderco Golden, Colorado on it.... I think that was ...

I feel stupid about asking this question, I looked at the scissors and they where WAY out of shape, so I sharpened another pair and BOOM... would cut something before they even touched it. Thank y'all for the help!

You just put the stone on the back of the blade of the scissor (not the angled part) and just rub it down the length of the blade.

Today we cooked a turkey we bought for Christmas, after it was done cooking I went to carve it with a kitchen knife and it was dull!! So I went and got the sharpmaker from my room and sharpened that thing pretty good (Good enough for my ability anyway.... It shaved hair) and carved the turkey. After...

Yeah, I got the new version with the torx screw. Unfortunately, blade play and the Ladybug sort of go hand in hand...it's to be expected from such a small knife with such a thin blade with no liners. The tang is itty bitty on this little thing. The good news is, the newer versions are coming with sc...

I got my ladybug salt 3 SE last friday afternoon and have been carrying it ever since, along with my Delica 4 FFG. And have found myself going for it more than the Delica. I don't know if it's just because it's new but this thing REALLY gets the job done!! Iv used it for everything from cutting up c...
