After seeing Paul’s collection I’d certainly buy one but only if it was Vanax. :rolleyes: :D

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

That looks great Bloke! Thanks, Spydergirl! I s’pose you’d call it one of my Sunday Best. Ah, hahaha! I think it’s a beautiful knife and should I critique it, I’d say it’s a little heavier than I’d prefer and the blade stock is thicker than I prefer but it has an excellent finish and probably the s...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Hey Bloke. I don’t flatten it. But I have noticed a drop in performance like you mention. I do battle burrs sometimes. I always figured I was using to much pressure. So I lightened up my hands and seemed to fix that issue. But my bevels tend to have a bit more convexing now than they used to. I ass...

Not in my pocket per se but I’m at home today doing nothing so I started looking for a pearl handle Puma Mini 4 Star and found this amongst other things. :rolleyes:

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Ok. ... Hey PStone, that edge certainly looks like it’ll cut and nice to see another coarse edge, either ways. :cool: I only have a little bit of HAP40 in a Delica. I reprofiled it when I first got it to a 1200 Venev bonded diamond at around 28deg or a little less and a couple of light swipes on th...

Re: Vanax PM2 Lets Do This!!!

I'm always a little concerned with steel campaigns like this... Vanax (I'm assuming we're all talking about super-clean here), like Sal said is prohibitively expensive and difficult to get. Meaning there is very few actual vanax blades out there (and even less being actively used I'm sure) but a lo...

Why is it tip down only?
As long as it is, if it was tip up it would take 5 minutes and 3 hands to pull it out and open it.

Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

Gerber Sportsman 1, 2 and 3 were classics in their day. 440C and even Vascowear ( a few years in the 80's in the Sportsman 2 ). Pretty sporty stuff for those days. Hey Joe, I remember the Sportsman although I never owned one but I had a flash ivory micarta folder back then around the mid 80’s plus ...

Re: What’s up with the military?

Do you prefer the Military to the PM 2? Hey Barry, I can only echo Killer's words above. After carrying a Military for maybe a year or more I decided to carry my PM2 one day. I put it in my pocket and mustn't have opened it beforehand. After I got to work and did opened it, I had a little chuckle t...

Re: Jeweler's Loupes & Magnifying devices?

Hey Bloke, do I remember right in that you have a magnifying visor you use sometimes? If so, can you tell us a bit more about that? Does anyone else use one? Camber, I’ve used this old US made OptiVISOR for close to three decades and I s’pose it’s starting to show. They’re a well made quality item ...
