Agreed, most people on here,(and any other knife forum for that matter) likely has either a number of knives in rotation or a couple in supersteels that take forever to wear down. Also they probably know how to sharpen well enough as to not do what my dad used to do to his “roast beef knife” on a coarse grinding wheel every Sunday. After his passing I couldn’t let it go in the trash so I turned it into my “apple knife”.zhyla wrote: ↑Sun Nov 18, 2018 9:36 pmThis is probably the wrong place to pose that question. Most (all?) of us have a lot of knives and tend to rotate them a lot. You can wear a blade out, but you can’t wear a dozen blades out.
I carried one Native continuously for about 10 years. It didn’t really wear out, it just got dull. And the clip didn’t hold up well, but the Native clips back then aren’t as good as the current ones.
That is a true beauty! You sir, are an incredible free hand sharpener. I only wish my bevels looks so good!
Looks fine to me! Pop a lower edge angle on it to compensate for many sharpenings and you should be good! That said, how is the side to side blade play?
It did get a wobble twice. I smacked it on the hinge with a deadblow hammer and it tightened to where I wanted it. I could see the hinge pin then so I sansed it flat on fine sandpaper and you could not see it anymore.
