    It's complicated because S110V may cost multiples of what other steels cost, but in real world terms, they aren't that much more expensive. If the goal was one knife to last for ten years, spending...

    If all variables are the same, that would mean the person had the correct tools for the job when sharpening. The difference in time between sharpening an S110V blade vs. sharpening one with VG-10 or...

    You can maintain certain steels after they're sharpened fairly easily, therefore it's a confusing question with no perfect answer. If you have the right stones, even super steels can be sharpened...

    I would likely send it in, I don't think you'll fully appreciate it as it is now. Where did you buy it?

    Perhaps save the trade-in allowance for the future and buy yourself another of this knife...

    I think cutleryshoppe has the Torx pivot version specifically labeled as such, their prices are usually quite good, too.

    The Techno is a fine slicer, it's just thick stock and small so it's unique. It is very thin at the edge.

    Again, I'll mention that just like with a hammer, one can achieve having a high performance knife and a decent prybar tool but that doesn't mean the knife blade should be used to pry, there are many...

    Hard use folder and overbuilt folder are not necessarily the same thing but I think people get the two mixed up frequently. When someone wanted a hammer with a prybar, they didn't weaken the hammer's...

    Personally, I think it makes more sense to attach a separate strong but light pry bar or something of the sort to a knife design. Like where a backspacer goes but one that runs further up and can...

    I like black because there are worse colors. The brown color on the Southard doesn't really do it for me as a standard production color. I agree that the Forum Native's green is excellent.

    I would...

    The opposite is true of steel bearings though, particularly in detents. If it were to get stuck in place by some dirt, the ball could be worn/flattened. Ceramic is harder than steel so perhaps what...

    Modifying the flipper knives?

    My Southard got some grit in it recently and I couldn't blow it out with compressed air or wash it out, so it had to be taken apart. When doing so I couldn't help but think that the washers and...

    I spent a huge chunk of money recently on a WE Pro Pack II because I'm too impatient to perfect hand sharpening. I think if I knew someone locally who was into knives my learning curve could be...

    There are plenty of other super steels that offer rust resistance, I would stick with one of them.

    There is a section on Bladeforums for people offering their skills doing anything you want to your knife. I would look there (I'm mobile otherwise I would link, sorry)

    My Southard came ridiculously dull...I wonder if it's just the CTS204P's wear resistance being a factor when they sharpen them up quickly before going out. On the plus side, you know you won't have...

    The wobble isn't really an issue but I would like to see a new system come out that is deeper (so rods can sit in further and remove play) and has more storage for the other sharpening stones.

    Eventually you will have to re-sharpen. The steel wears away and thickens up at the edge.

    The steels aren't drastically different. S35VN is slightly tougher and machines better (which was the main reason for the creation, is my understanding). If you're looking for edge holding...
