Re: Finally got a sharpening system

I haven't seen up close the KME or used one. But I got to check out the WE at the IWA Outdoor Classics here in Germany and that sold me on their system. I love it and was very glad to get my hands on it and to see it in action before hand.

Re: Which sharpening system for convex edge?

Doesn't stropping from a hanging belt tend to convex the edge a little bit? If your stropping base gives a little bit (like the mouse pad) then your edge will convex more. I use a WE to sharpen and I use their leather strops to finish. But then I maintain between sharpenings with a hanging belt stro...

Re: Am I the only one?

I always wonder though, how many of these posts we see of "I broke my tip AND IT'S NOT MY FAULT",...if they were flicking it and it flew out of their hand. It would be the "cool" way to do it, but also the most likely for a flying knife incident! Oh, and I am guilty of having fun flicking mine every...

Re: Am I the only one?

If your Lil' Native or other compression lock spydercos can free fall and swing when you compress the lock, it helps. If the pivot is too tight it restricts the flick. Other than that it might just be hand/finger dexterity. Practice makes perfect!

Re: Happy with the Diversity.

Although ignorance is bliss! I used to not think about it or even know about it. I look back on some of the knives I used to carry and I don't know how I even used them! This was before I knew anything about different steels, different grinds and edges and how to sharpen my tools. Of course this eve...

Re: Sal, why is the Delica grinded so thick behind the edge ?

Try a Chaparral, very thin blade, very nice slicer...

I know...not part of the question at hand, but I think others have said it already...Delica made for the average joe. If you want a slicer, look for that. And the awesome thing about Spyderco is you have many options out there, and that is great!

Wow, this is interesting. I’d be in, especially being in Germany. Would like to stay on the right side of things and still be able to carry. Thanks for the many options and new possibilities!

Re: Actual users

My Chaparral LW has won out pocket time lately for weekdays at the office and most Sundays as well. But weekend work I still pick up my Para3 and Lil' Native.
