Cut up some strawberries with my newly reprofiled and sharpened Calypso Jr Super Blue.

I took it down to about 10 dps and touched it up a bit on the UF rods in the 30° slots.
Got some practicing to do but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Bet that cuts like the devil!
I waited just barely too long and couldn't get one.

I just started a job, this job conincidentally requires constant cutting miscellaneous objects and opening things for hours on in sometimes.

I carried my Tenacious, and PM2 S110V to work. My Tenacious was ok from about 7:30am to 11:30am. The Tenacious was utterly dulled. So, I used my S110V PM2 solely for all cutting without dulling, or any degradation.

I resharpened the ole 8CR13MOV on a dinner plate after I got home, the edge was razor sharp after only 2-3 minutes of light or no pressure!

I’m not touching the S110V edge. No need!

Carved a pumpkin with my cf/ti millie, and cut some birthday balloons off a chair at work with my m4 yo2 :)

It sure does!

They're not all sold out yet are they? I saw the Calypso Jr thread popped up recently; they were in stock somewhere again. If they haven't all sold by now they might be easier to get hold of, since the mad rush seems to have abated somewhat.

One of the many reason beloved wife sometimes attacks me Connor. Though you’d think carrying a little knife would have to be easier than attaching a middle aged man rolling on the floor laughing. :rolleyes:

I used my s110v Military to cut some rope and now I can't find it. I really hope it's still on the dredge and I find it in the morning where I was cutting the rope today.

Broke down cardboard with my SE Pacific Salt. The thinly ground edge works well for this task.

Cutting dry rot from a barn timber. The Manix LW in 110v. Dry rot is soft, but the blade goes through so effortlessly that it is easy to hit hardware or hard knots full force. Got the job done.

Cut up a roast chicken with my One-Eyed Jack. Another of those little big knives.

Then someone bought me dinner, so now it's slicing some chicken.

Cut back brambles and third of an inch ropes, while helping set out a Field Target course, with my Tenacious.

On the bottom of ceramic plates, there is often a ring of uncoated ceramic which can be used as an emergency sharpening stone.

Edit: same with ceramic mugs.
