    Thanks for the input guys.

    I just pulled the trigger on the Manual version.

    After thinking about it for a while, I decided the DA version did seem gimmicky, and at TWICE the price, I just...

    THIS is what I was wondering about. There has to be some difference in feel between them. I like smooth, but thought the "cool factor" of the DA was worth something as well.

    Maybe I should get...

    Evil,
    Thanks for your input. Your review was one of the ones I read while in the research phase of the purchase.

  5. Spyderco Vallotton: Dual Action or Manual???

    Hey guys.

    I've fallen in love with this knife recently, and want to pull the trigger on it soon.

    My ONLY decision is whether to get the Dual Action version or the manual. Since the DA is TWICE...

    Wow, it looks like Tuesday is just as rough for me as Monday was LOL!

    For some reason I always thought the steeper of the two settings was 40 degree, like it was measured off the side. I also...
  7. Angle confusion solved...

    I was just wondering if anyone has actually done that with a Sharpmaker (and what they thought of it), or if they just settle on the 40 (or even 30 degree) setting?

    Also, I think I realized why I...

    Has anybody ever tried a microbevel with a Sharpmaker, or are the 40 and 30 degree angles too far off?

    That's what I meant. My Dyslexia just shows up a little more on Mondays. LOL!!!!

    Thanks so much for the info so far guys. I really appreciate it.

    It sounds like those that do microbevel are doing it at a much lower angle than I thought. I was thinking of microbeveling at 30...
  11. To Microbevel, or NOT to Microbevel... That is the question!

    Hi guys,

    I know there are a lot of guys here who are edge fanatics, and after seeing some of the work in the "Show your edge" thread I KNOW this is the forum to ask this question.

    I was...

    cheaperthandirt.com is a good one, too. I buy a lot of gun stuff there, but the price on my Native was lower than anywhere I had seen. Great customer service, too.

    Another good one is...

    Chris, I have not tried it yet, but want to pick up a Tuf cloth. I'm a Glock guy, so I don't worry about the guns rusting. I know knives are a different animal though. I heard on the Glock forum...

    I have it in both the spray can and the non spray. The non-aerosol is a little thicker, and I use the non spray with a little flat paint brush. The aerosol can is a little thinner, and you can put...

    Nano-oil vs. Ballistol...

    The test platform for this shootout is my Spyderco...

    I'm a Ballistol fan, too.

    Can anybody that has used Ballistol on their knives/guns chime in on the differences or improvement over Ballistol, if any?
