I free hand all my knives
K390, s110v, 3v
Experiment man, see what happens.
What did you cut with it?
PM2, Military or Manix 2 would be my choice for a K390 sprint
There will always be some flex in the system and thus never be able to truly achieve a V bevel geometry.
The less the downward pressure while sharpening the closer to perfect V the geometry will be....
I searched and found some threads on other forums about Nano-oil, people really like what it does.
For pivot mainly Finish Line Extrem Fluoro (same as CRK grease) and much cheaper.
On my razors I use Ballistol fro long term storage and it works awesome.
Just got Frog Lube last week, not sure...
Thanks for the detailed info.
I am huge stone junkie, and have and have tried a many many different stones, so before I jumped on Spyderco I wanted to check how they rate against common synthetics....
Got mine in today, awesome knife.
can you imagine it sells fro less than what KW charges, that'd be hilarious.
Mine comes in today :)
Just got email from Howes, getting a few Manix 2 XL in S90V, $233 a pop. Also a few Native in CPM XHP.
I thought those were dealer specials?
We have a subforum to report fakes or ask if a certain knife is a fake.
On Youtube you can find...
Too many fakes floating to risk it. Some vendors are online knife shops so they are probably OK, but still you have to be able to recognize fakes (and good auction pics) to be able to tell.
Thanks for the tip. I could edit the title, but after saving the changes it does not seem to have made a difference so far.
The only thing I could change was the title of the post only. Hopefully a...
If the Sebenza can have almost no scale ergo so can this one. I agree the graphics design is unappealing. I would have loved if they had used the red/black/golden scheme of their boxes on those...
Not possible, I am yet to see any forum software that allows a user to change title. Only a moderator/admin can edit titles AFAIK.
The Draper blade shape is cool, not really digging the hanlde.
The Tatanka is doolworthy as well.
saw the link on another forum, the folks there browse the nets for new stuff constantly.
Now I realized the difference, I am new to Spyderko and am making rookie mistakes :p
So it is Native in XHP, and they have Native 5 on preorder in S110V.
I do not own a native, but the blade shape is a favorite of mine. My issue is the grind and how it cuts, I have Manix 2 and for some tasks it is not the best cutter, how is the Native 5?
Mine are shipped already, can't wait to get them
Knife center has them, assuming dealer special?
They are taking preoprders for a Native 5 in CF and S110V
I'd go m390 and XHP, because I have Military in S90V, which is the same as CTS 20CP, and Southard in CTS 204P. For me the choice is purely to try the steels out, I do not know how they would...
They said that they have 100 in stock ready to ship on Wednesday.
