Ha ha! That's awesome Rick :D
I thought so too! She said this is the first time she's encountered a situation where me, being a knife nut really was a huge help. You never know when you'll need one! She doesn't understand the whole sharpening process but texted me joking around "you're probably going to have to reprofile my ladybug on the flat side of those white rods" Hahahaha...she cracks me up, got me a winner :D
Currently have 17 :spyder: 's in 13 different steels.

Used the Shaman to cut a 4 inch 12,000lb rated rigging strap that had to be thrown out due to damage. We didn't want anyone using it anymore as its integrity had been jeopardized. I made one cut and a witness said "wow that's a sharp knife" but by the 4th cut (it was 30ft long so I cut into pieces to make disposing of it easier) it wasn't walking through the heavy duty synthetic material so handily.

Making some little cardboard spacers to help prevent these sheets of steel from sticking together as they are lifted off the pallet and lowered onto the laser table.

You need to get one of those greatswords from Cold Steel. I hear they're great at cutting through thick rope. ;)

No, silly, knives don’t take pictures. :)

I used my phone to take the picture (of a piece of rope I cut with my little Ladybug). :cool:

Today was the first day playing with my new Maxamet blade, so I wanted to see what it could do. Of course I did the usual slicing up rags and opening bags of grain, but that's just boring stuff.

The first test was cutting out main bearing shims for the 1926 engine. I made the shims out of cardboard, and backed it up with pine. There were some curves, holes, and details, so I used the point a lot. Next I wanted a piece of aluminum to be cut from a beer can. I stabbed the beer can and just push cut the rectangle that I needed. A blade needs to be sharp to push cut beer can material. Lastly, a buddy had a gib key that didn't fit right, so I made him a shim out of the same beer can. This time the dimensions had to be very close, so I used the tip to cut the aluminum while it was backed up on pine.

And then came the most important job of the day: slicing the banana creme pie. The cuts through the pie were straight and well defined, just like you'd expect from a top-shelf knife.

Upon returning home, I examined the edge. Of course it's not as keen as when I left the house this morning, but it's still sharper than the knives residing in most guys pockets. It doesn't slice through thin magazine paper like it did before. Under magnification, I can see no damage. Initially, I thought there was wear at the very tip, but after thinking about it, I think it's smeared aluminum that I'm seeing.

After tomorrow, I'll touch up the edge, start carrying the knife every day, and probably start using it for more sensible tasks.
