    I should elaborate.

    I've had the Arkansas tri-hone for a good long while, and I really do like it. It's a good way to get started with freehanding since they don't cut very fast and they aren't...

    I usually use either an Arkansas Tri-hone or my newest toy, a Ken Onion Work Sharp. Then I finish the knives on a leather strop loaded with Harbor Freight green compound.

    Apprehension about using a new knife as intended

    Get this. When I get a new knife, slide down the cover, unwrap your new knife from its protective wrapping, and what do I do with it? I open it a few times, check its sharpness, then put it straight...

    Do you keep your stainless blades oiled?

    I don't oil anything on my stainless blades except the pivots, but after I put an 8Cr13MoV Byrd in the dishwasher I noticed that there are some spots on the belly of the knife where corrosion popped...

    The Delica in FFG works great for cutting food. I set a 30 degree convex edge on mine and it's amazing for, well, delicate tasks like cutting food. And mine is in a friendly orange color. I don't...

    What do you plan to do with it? Leathermans have decent blades and great pliers.

    And I must confess, I love SAK. They're well-made and designed brilliantly. They won't open a can as well as a can...

    I've found that 420HC gets as sharp as any steel, from my observations, anyways.

    Indeed it does, and it comes with a handy button that holds the trigger down. It can be set to go very slow. I think I'll make sure to go slow and use the button so I can move the blade across...

    I like PE and SE equally. I don't care much for combo edges at all.

    I have a Pacific Salt with full serrations and it's one of my favorite knives.
