    It could be any number of things but more often than not this is the result of the bevel angle being steeper than the sharpening angle. You end up just taking metal off the shoulder instead of...

    Woodtx, welcome to the forum. My first question would be do you have a sharpening system? If not then I would highly recommend picking up a sharpmaker. If you aren't working with your edges and going...

    Gbellah, this is the most creative and intriguing entry I have seen! I will be sad if this one doesn't make the calendar. Well done!

    Right on! Tap78 actually shared that with me yesterday! That's crazy! Here's one I took last year. The humpbacks come through here every year starting in August or so. I actually saw my first one a...

    I used the 3m paper that is pictured in the op. It doesn't matter though. Any low grit paper would be fine.

    I rubbed tip to heel as I think it's much easier to keep everything vertical and even that way. No "mushrooming", but the edges were a tad sharp after the sanding so I hit em a couple of passes on...

    Do you lock your brakes up every 5 minutes to make sure they will work when u need them? Do you bang the lock on the step ladder with a sledgehammer to make sure it won't collapse under your weight?...

    I would disagree. I would say that is very uncommon. At least in my experience. Having said that, I have used my pacific salt to puncture on numerous occasions, stabbing the entire blade into the...

    40 degrees. About 3 swipes on front to every 1 on the back. I tilt the knife when I do the backside too so I'm only hitting it at about 5 degrees. The idea is to use just enough of an angle on the...

    Sorry about the health issues buddy. Most of us are guilty of taking that for granted. There's still a lot of fun to be had in this hobby without fishing and camping but yes, I'm sure I would miss...

    I stayed away from se for a long time too for the same reason. Glad I got over that because there's really nothing to it.

    I use the sharpmaker and pretty much do it how Sal suggests in the video....

    No worries. And it's not difficult to sharpen at all. I give mine regular touch ups on the sharpmaker to keep it shaving sharp.

    I think different folks view the value of serrated edge in...

    Serrated for sure! I only have 1 pe salt and I honestly wish I had gotten it in serrated edge like my others. Serrated h1 outperforms pe by a mile IMO.

    Just use the sharpmaker at 40 degrees. Your angle is obviously lower than that so the 40 degree setting will put a very functional microbevel on your knife. When the 40 degree microbevel starts to...

    Yes sir, that's pretty much how I feel about it all. I do like that they made a lot of those green pm2s and we were able to grab them for under $150. That's definitely a "user sprint".
