Hi I'm after a strong folding knife with a blade length of roughly about 3.5 inches, it will be used when fishing, backpacking, camping and other outdoor stuff although I still take a few fixed blades when camping but when doing other stuff like fishing a fixed blade is just not very convenient so ...

nozh2002, why so mad? You yourself approve of private censorship (which is not the same as governmental censorship) and deleting comments. Just look at your very own blog. You did the exact same thing on your blog as Kristi did here. As an administrator of your blog, you felt that a post was rude a...

Nozh, I'm not going to argue with you. It's simple really. Participate without insulting others. Stay on topic. Just for the record, I removed it from public view. I don't need to put it back, my opinion won't change. End of discussion. Kristi I perfectly understand that. But tell me where did I in...

I guess I'm too old. I have no idea who that is. This thread went from blade steels to free education from the government. Of course I will be the first to say that nothing is ever free. Someone seems to have a chip on their shoulder. Would DMT take care if that? *Edited* I seriously doubt that DMT...

On my opinion if someone make strong statement - it raise questions, especially when it is not true. In this particular case it was sad that DMT somehow d...

In regards to rapid wear, if you sharpened a knife every day and just removed 10 microns of steel from the edge after a year you would have approximately 1/4" of steel removed. Regardless of the steel, if you use a knife significantly you would need to do that unless you wanted to use the knife whe...

Unless you are reprofiling or fixing a damaged edge the wear from stones should be kept to a minimum. Assuming you have an edge angle that doesn't resemble a flat-head screwdriver. I don't understand the DMT discussion. Abrasive resistant materials need abrasives to abrade them. The more aggressive...

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Maybe the people using those S90V knives are actually cutting so much that they dull it and need to sharpen it every day and that level of use would generate that wear regardless of sharpening medium. I am making a strong statement because it is all I know and I want ...

Maybe you're right. I have almost every grit of DMT stone, but I'm not completely convinced it is the right tool. You remember those threads on "have you ever used up a knife?" where people will show a S90V blade worn down an entire quarter of an inch? Those are the people using DMT as their main s...

Not trying to troll, but you might be oversimplifying it. What if I were to give you a dull serrated edge and/or something with serious chips in it? Then it will be called - serration and/or serious chips removal not resharpening (I am not oversimplifying anything - just use right terms). Serration...

I use the Sharpmaker. Best not to let CTS-20CP get too dull as it can take a bit more time to restore the edge. I try not to let any of my blades get too dull anyway, and the Sharpmaker is great for quick and easy touchups. I don't have the ambition at present to get my knives to a razor's edge. I ...

I never really experience any difference in sharpness and in time of sharpening with quite a variety of steels I have in my collection. On my experience cheap steel sometimes ...

Yes, and no. I have no interest in performance testing steels and don't have any need for a blade that will skin a dozen elephants without re-sharpening. I'll take a steel like VG-10, S30V, or even AUS-6 over steels that may hold an edge better, but are less stainless or non-stainless. If an attrac...

There is no much difference in steel performance if edge is dull already. Most cuts average user do can be made with almost dull blade, it is matter of force applied to cut. It is like if you need to drive to closest grocery store you do not need Ferrari, Civic would be just fine. I present once kni...
