    I am the wrong person to ask. I cannot explain the processes that take place. The fact that I cannot explain it does not negate it however. Get a straight razor, learn to use it and see for...

    Barbers and master straight razor makers have been stropping on their palms for ages.

    It bears mentioning that traditional stropping is a process that does not involve abraiding steel. The...

    I have evolved in my interests a bit. Still love Spyderco knives, but have gotten a bit (a lot) more serious about competitive cutting, and have...

    Personally, I always liked to generate a burr with ZDP, but I always use a 10x lens or greater to spot it early.

    The most powerful advice I have offered for ZDP is to use a very light touch! It...

    1. vertical 2x4 (must cut board in half) 5 points

    Not for sure. I think probably a lot of them are around 62-64...but different batches of the 171 were reported to be lower or higher. They are no longer made...so most of us are transitioning to...

    We need a Spyderco BSI knife! Donavon made his own knife for today.

    Currently there are no BSI comp knifes in production other than customs by individual makers.

    There was a mini-peanut butter cup on a golf tee, a bendy straw (that had to be cut above the accordion), and a can of soda that we tried to cut rings from (like shown here...its harder to do in the...

    There are slicing cuts being added to the comps all the time. One very notable cut is a piece of foam tubing about 3 inches thick that is poorly supported on the end of a soda bottle that is also...
  13. Poll: I have been deep into competition cutting lately...

    I have been deep into competition cutting lately so I have been playing with the tougher steels. Notable standouts are CPM M4, and 3V.

    I take them up to 15k and they polish wonderfully and slice...

    I'd say it depends on the steel. Some steels take a great polish and slice very well even when polished. It sounds odd but I have found some steels to actually slice really well when polished.

    Oh my...

    Spyderco offers free sharpening. Something tells me that they will return to you a sharp knife (probably the same knife that you are having difficulty with).

    But I have certainly not lost any love for Spyderco.

    This may belong in "off topic" so mods can move it if they like. I just wanted to post here so more of my old friends would see it.
