I'm sure that if the on topic post is interesting enough, that a lot of people will reply to it. Unless of course, the drama is more interesting to watch. :D
I don't think the tangent that threads can often take is what was meant by "derailled thread" - it's the descent into a seemingly needless and petty argument with slights and insults. That gets tiresome.

This is not one of those threads that has taken on a life of its own in a positive way in my opinion.

But the question is, do you need a coarse or a fine edge to spread the peanut butter?

There is a lot of good information in this thread.

What other possibilities and cases are there that we haven't discussed?


A good combination for me is having a larger knife with a higher carbide content and a smaller knife with a lower carbide content.

Today I have a Native 5 and a Dragonfly Salt.

Yes, just to make you jealous. :) I actually put my normal G-10 one in a Spyder pack so I can carry the Moonglow more.

Yep, Native 5 or Caly 3 for my "big" knife, most days.

I was shocked at how similar those two knives really are. I always thought the Native was bigger but they are virtually identical. Same(ish) length, thickness and depth to the blade. The biggest difference being the top to bottom depth right behind the hole with the Caly being thinner and rising to a thumb ramp where the Native goes straight across and is deeper. And the Native's liners are slightly thicker. But other than that...

The purpose of this of course is that once successful I can move on to doing the same thing with the Santalales plants and reach the ultimate goal of having a knife handle made out of Mistletoe, of course the benefits of that are obvious.

I don't know what kind of women you guys are running around with, but I know my wife wouldn't be interested in making out with me if I was waving a knife around in the air. :D

I guess this is stone in my backyard (I only can guess, cause you so polite to point it directly).

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 dangerous to knife because it shorten knife life.
And as it was pointed out - there is no any information exist to support this statement.

This was point of derail if you like. It was pretty silly attempt to damage DMT reputation and
form so called "general" opinion it the way knife owners to avoid this superior sharpening tool.

However real Derail when thread goes absolutely nowhere was actually started by you.
You may simple count how many pointless posts here after your very manifestation.
