Re: Is your interest in sharpening on the same level as your interest in knives?

I think it would probably fall in the same category as selling knives on the forum. I dont think any of the sharpening whiz's we have here would keep a knife or mess up someone's knife. But I think once money is involved, it's a no no.

Re: Is your interest in sharpening on the same level as your interest in knives?

A friend of mine at work showed me his beat up, chipped and duller than dull Tac Force knife he got from Wal-Mart in Friday and asked if I could sharpen it for him anytime I had a chance. Of course I said yes. This would be a great opportunity see how far I've come with my free hand sharpening...as ...

Re: Cutlery Shoppe Para 3 exclusives

Honestly I'm very surprised to see how long they took to sell out. Especially with the cult following of the previous PM2 version, and Para 3 has a huge following as well. Can we chalk it up to orange not being everyone's cup of tea, or possibly the steel not being something new and exotic? Can't se...

Re: Post your Seconds Sale hauls

Incredible deals for such small blemishes. May be worth the plane ticket next year. Get to see a beautiful part of the country, visit with a few friends from high school and college I haven't seen in 15 years or so. What an amazing haul. Well done!

$65 for that BHQ Para 3!?! What a steal! What's the blemish with that knife?

What's wrong with the 20CV PM2 DLT just released ? Just wondering.
For me, personally...I find the scales very vanilla and blah. Nothing against the steel!

Re: Edge retention.

At what grit are you guys finishing your knives? You might see some improvement if you go with a bit more coarse edge. And sharpening skill and type definitely makes a difference. Was recently shown by Pete in a cutting test with four R2D2 knives sharpened by different people. https://www.youtube.c...

Re: Edge retention.

I spent a few years making boxes. This could also simply be a difference in the quality of the boxes themselves. There is a crazy range of paper weights and flute sizes and even two of the same type of box (say two Tide boxes for example) can be fairly different. The paper itself has a lot of clay ...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Well ... mail call made it yesterday. Been wanting to get these 2 just for this scale swap. The green one made it to the pocket today but I’m still digging the DLC and brown.

Re: Edge retention.

Makes me wonder if it's the steel or the edge you put on it, or a combination of both. I posted a couple days ago, how I find it a bit weird that I can use a knife at work to cut some cardboard, plastic pallet strapping, packaging tape and shrink wrap...by the end of the day no knife I have is hair...

$285!?!?! Nobody is going to pay that. That's insane, not even an exotic fancy new steel.

They kept declining my card. But in the end i got my order in for one of each. Got a little scared there i would miss out. Still says "MANUAL VERIFICATION REQUIRED" in my account, but i think i'm good now cause i did get an order in. My Discover card was doing that too. I began to feel panicky haha...
