    I have two Cats (one with jimping, one without). I like them both and they're handy to carry and use but I haven't used either consistently enough to be able to comment on edge retention. Fit and...

    Mine has no wobble. The blade is slightly off-center when closed but certainly not enough to fuss about. Otherwise the knife is excellent and I agree that the spring pressure is robust. And, yes, it...

    Sal, Glad you're proceeding with more models. I've got almost all the originals including a couple of the bread knives and, except for the (known) handle problem on one they're all still usable and...

    I have several varieties of UKPK. The most recent, now quite a few months old, is an FFG Drop Point and it's fine regarding all the items about which you've expressed concern. I guess I've been...

    Sal,

    It's great that there will be a new Urban with a leaf shape blade. I have two or three of that knife and it has been one of my most carried knives over the years.

    Thanks for that info. I guess I'll just have to get my act together and give it a try both ways, using the 1000-8000 first. I've found using a sheet of silicone carbide ("wet or dry") abrasive...

    thombrogan- Thanks for relating your experience with the Norton waterstones. Would you have used the 4000 grit stone as an intermediate step if you had that stone too?

    Jack-You can imagine a spokeshave as the equivalent of a wood plane but with a very short sole and its two handles perpendicular to the direction of travel. It's used for shaping and smoothing...

    I have a set of Norton waterstones, grits:220, 1000, 4000 & 8000. I use them primarily for sharpening spokeshave blades and, for whatever reason, have never tried them on VG-10, S30V type knife...

    My dealer simply ordered the FFG. I have most of the previous models. Resistance to closing on this new one is not only greater than any of the earlier versions (G-10 or lightweight) but greater that...

    Holland and Deacon: Thanks for sharing your experiences with the Chaparral. Sounds as if it's adequately strong for the sort of things I do with a knife.

    I agree with those who favor Chaparral but what do think about its ability to stand moderately, not extremely, hard use over time? Sorry I can't give good examples of what, in my mind, constitutes...

    Although they're very different knives, the Cat has much the same feel as the leaf Urban.
