Re: Medium Bench Stone

it is truly flat, well, any good ideas on how to do that exactly? Besides the eyeball test and running a few blades up and down? You can take a steel ruler on edge, same for a square, or place it on a flat piece of glass and check to see if there are gaps or if light shines through underneath with ...

Re: First free hand sharpening

Pics... And other thoughts. It is shaving sharp, but not quite next level scary sharp. I also tried to microbevel at 30 on the SM with the fine rods, but after 1-2 min the edge was much duller. I probably needed to start the micro on the brown (or even CBN?) rods first, then fine, and it probably wo...

First free hand sharpening

I finally got a few bench stones and after practicing on junk knives I did my first reprofile free hand on a Spydie. pics are coming next of my set up. My goal was for 25d inclusive. I’m not sure if I went that steep or not but it seems close. The dmt xcoarse is a beast! My dmt coarse was bought use...

Re: Medium Bench Stone

I will inspect it more pure flatness. What I could fix was 1 gouge, maybe 1 cm long, and on the edges of the gouge that it was raised. Brown triangle rod made quick work of it. There is still a faint gouge mark, but the raised edges are now flat. I will check the stone to make sure it is truly flat,...

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

Bloke - I have never owned or even handled a Phil Wilson designed knife, so I am super pumped to be able to get a feel for his designs with a cheap sub $35 knife. 8cr13MOV - ya, super budget. But, I want to get a feel of the ergos, blade geo, etc.

Re: Spyderco Military and Paramilitary 2 upcoming sprints and exclusives

Peel Ply CF for $220 seems steep to me. $150 for G10 would be preferred. I already got the KW RIL Millie CF/Ti - and it is stunning! In my pocket right now, and for $200 that seems like a great deal.

Re: Spyderco Military and Paramilitary 2 upcoming sprints and exclusives

hopefully 1200 piece runs so we might have an extra 5-10 minutes to try and snag one. I want any of the PM2's you guys mentioned

Re: Medium Bench Stone

Well, since I am fiddler - I took my triangle brown rod, the corner, and tried to even out the gouges. To be honest, it worked pretty well. That side is not 100% perfect, but I can glide a blade over smoothly now. I will fiddle a bit more and maybe I can save a trip to UPS and make it work

Re: Medium Bench Stone

One side of the stone seems pretty flawless. Do you think I will need or want the other side down the road? If not, I will just keep it. But, if using that other side will come in handy then I will follow your recommendation

Medium Bench Stone

My first spyderco bench stone came in today. Medium stone. I ordered it from the evil Amazon! But, the stone has one very smooth side, but the other side has 1-2 small gouges. Running the knife blade over them gives you that cringy feeling like nails on a chalk board. What is a good way to smooth ou...

Re: Spyderco Amsterdam Meet 2019 Report

The Endela looks great! Maybe I will grab a sprint run later on. Any guesses on the final cost for the K390 Police? Sub $150 would be awesome! Am I dreaming?

We should start a pickem pool - winner gets a free K390 Police :) :)

My guess, $138

Re: Hey, DLT or other dealers/distributors!

Or maybe make an extra 600 of the PM2 20cv exclusive so a normal human can get one. Do they have bots buying these things up when they hit the market. I was there 15 minutes after they went live - not even close...

Bring another round!

Re: Favorite steel!

So far PMA11 (A10) has been my favorite. Amazing edge retention. I want to like K390 more since it is supposed to be tougher. I have the urban, but comparing an Urban to a Mule is tough

Hoping to get the frn police in k390 to test it with a bigger knife

Re: Spyderco and Murray Carter colab...

I could handle in the low $200's and grab one knife. I wish they had a long carving knife that was a little less "tall" if that is the right word. From edge to the spine. That large chef/carving knife is a little taller then I would want, but I would still grab one of those awesome knives.

The coating on the pac salt wears of pretty fast, (so do the serrations :P) I don't mind though.
