Re: Salt 2 LC200 questions

If a knife is made in America, given the choice of steel, I would choose LC200N. We would be paying an upcharge to use VG-10 in American made knives. Conversely, Japanese knife makers pay an upcharge to use LC200N in their knives which in turn is passed on to an American consumer even though the LC...

I'd buy a Dremel, that's what I reprofile all my blade spines on.
Thank you David for the suggestion.

What kind of accessory do you use in the dremel?

Are you able to show us the before and after, where you draw the line to make the new shape?

Re: Practical methods for making Salt knives pointier

Use painter's tape on any parts you don't want marred. Do you have a dremel and a vise? I don't... I can get to a vise at my parents, by I have no dremel. Won't take my angle grinder close to my pocket knives either :D :eek: Just buy a cheap belt sander. You can use other methods but you'll be spen...

Re: Salt 2 LC200 questions

I’ve seen results for LC200N edge-holding from below VG-10 to at or above S30V. TBH, edge-holding results are almost certain to vary in real-world use. Jim and that range is more than enough for most people. our grandparents got by with far worse. some of us did too. the first knife i carried daily...

Re: Salt 2 LC200 questions

I am aware of those tests, which I really value, as they are truly scientific.
But I can't close my eyes on the other tests, specially when LC200N has been tested several times.
I got to try it by myself and see what RWT says.

Re: What Spyderco has surprised you the most?

My first one, which happens to be a Delica 4. Because you can only have a first Spyderco... That surprise can't be beaten. "Primeiro estranha-se, depois entranha-se" was a slogan invented by a famous Portuguese poet, for the first Coca-Cola add. It cleanly applies to Spyderco, and can be loosely tra...

I carried a Spydie in the hospital when my son was born. It was my Centofante4 and I plan to gift it to him someday.
I carried a SE Native 5 and I have it reserved to gift it to him when the appropriate time comes.

So cool we have these thoughts :cool:

Oh... How I miss a 20kg bar (gyms closed...)
The Salt 2.1 is going to be my next Spyderco, once I figure out how to move some of my less used knives.
