Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Prior to Sharpmaker, I used Fallkniven diamond/carbon stone for sharpening, where I would follow the existing bevel of the blade. This would, however, end up as convex secondary bevel, or to be more truthful, the edge was all around the place. The only steel that ended up great on the stone was LC2...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Reprofiled the Dragonfly on a Galley V. I used 80 grit sandpaper wrapped around the ceramic rods to hog off the steel and then finished with 400 grit paper. I'm tempted to pick up a set of CBN rods but I don't think they'll last very long when taking off this much steel. I think the Galley V is sup...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

People, Have any on you tried reprofiling a VG10 Delica to 15 dps with standard Sharpmaker stones (medium, fine)? From info I got, standard factory angle is cca 17dps. Looking whether to do it or not, depending on how long it would take. Also, would it make sense to sticky this thread? I haven’t do...

Re: K390 FRN models - Has Seki improved the edge angles or sharpness?

Does the same japanese factory make the frn models and the G-10 version of the police 4? I've never had an issue with the frn delicas, enduras, dragonflies that I've had but I went through 3 or 4 different G-10 K390 police 4s and the fit and finish, QC on all of them were awful. Uneven blade grind ...

Re: K390 FRN models - Has Seki improved the edge angles or sharpness?

https://i.imgur.com/tJNBXj0.jpg I have the K390 Dragonfly, and also purchased the K390 Delica and Manbug on behalf of a friend. I’d say they had pretty excellent edges for a production knife. They probably rivalled some of the Seki ZDP189 knives, which, I’d say were about the best edges I’ve had on...

Re: Atlantic Salt in ffg LC200N - won´t it be a great platform for a "wharnie-modded general EDC"?

Yes, I’d seriously consider regrinding an Atlantic to have a pointier tip. I’d probably use a PE version though.

I have a SE LC200N Pac Salt on the way and that will receive a bit of a pointier tip too.

Re: This is devotion...

A dragonfly on the bra strap? I honestly never would've thought to do that, but it's a great idea if you're wearing a sweater or something to hide it (or you don't care if it shows). I had friends in college that would carry their cash, IDs, everything in their bras when we went out to the bars. ;)...

Re: This is devotion...

That’s a great pants mod, Julia! I have a couple of female friends who carry Spydies. They both tend to wear a Dragonfly clipped to the front of their left bra strap. I’ll have to check out some of those pants you all are talking about. I have a pair of North Face pants that have been torn and repai...

Re: Spyderco chinese cleaver (cai dao)?

Cambertree, I have a 165mm nakiri that I like for especially thin slicing. I find the taller blade of a cleaver to be more versatile though, at least for me, if I am doing bulk cutting. I know the savory pancakes you are talking about, they are tasty. I am in Los Angeles so there's lots of great Ja...

Re: Spyderco chinese cleaver (cai dao)?

That's a lot of cooking! I don't spend nearly so much time in the kitchen, but I do make a lot of dishes using cabbage and that has made me a fan of these knives. I'd be interested to get your take on the ideal cleaver. :) Have you tried a Nakiri? The pattern was developed specifically for fine sli...

Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

On the knife, I haven't got a chance to use it in hard work but i did some yard work with it. I have to say it cuts great and has zero hot spots. Still one of the most comfortable knives I own. I can highly recommend the knife and especially being it is discontinued I would grab one up. Thanks for ...

Is the Proficient sheath made so it could be used for lefty carry as well?
Yes it is ambidextrous.
Excellent, thanks for that and for the review. :)

I’d be interested to hear more of your thoughts on this knife, if you get a chance to use it out in your yard a bit. :)

Re: How about a new Military?

I’m probably like a broken record on this but sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the oil. ;) :D

K390 or 4V would do nicely, thank you. :D :)

Re: Another "mini" Police thread?

I’m always up for more K390 in thin blades, and a new G10 Rookie would be great.

A blacked out TiCN version, like the old ‘Navy Seal’ Police, would be pretty cool.

Although, for practical purposes, I’d be just as happy with a K390 SS Stretch.

Re: Delica tip shape Bother anyone else?

I don’t pry with or put much lateral stress on my Delica or Endura tips, so I always regrind the hump down to a pointier profile.

It suits my uses better. Yeah and I prefer it aesthetically as well.
