    Thanks for that Cliff. Yes, I've been doing almost exactly as described, grind until it gets too hot to touch and (hopefully) before it changes colour.
    Though I assume that with HSS you'll have more...

    I was just having trouble remembering how things went back then.

    Here's a post of mine from 2009.

    It's just about all done on a cheap 1x30 belt sander, and just finished on stones.

    Yes the German test you describe is how I knew I was getting really thin, I was initially surprised when ZDP-189...

    Ok I grabbed my caliper and the edge on that knife is still .003-.004", and it doesn't flex like I remember when it was fresh.
    I'm just refreshing my memory here. My description of the edge bending...

    Are you sure that's a good idea Cliff?

    I once took my ZDP Caly 3 to .004 and it bent all over the place just trimming my fingernails (and I usually keep my nails fairly short and fresh).
    I can...

    The honest answer is a regular disposable razor blade system, except Spyderco would make those beautiful, thin, incredibly inexpensive wharncliffe blades out of all sorts of exotic alloys, and tell...

    Unfortunately the clip was one of the biggest problems with that knife. It felt really good in the hand, but it was physically not able to clip onto a bunch of my jeans pockets just because you can't...

    I'm still in love with my Warriors (plain and black) so it would have to be one of those. I think I'd take the black one, it would look super cool with the coating worn in.
    (and it's rust proof, and...

    At one point in time buying duplicates sounded odd, but as the years go by I've seen the same behaviour pretty much everywhere. It's normal.

    Oh man I hate it when these hypothetical questions aren't actually hypothetical.

    I'm saving for the upcoming Farid Mehr K2, and I just bought a South Fork.

    Does anyone know what the target hardness of XVC 11 is? I actually can't find any information on it.
    (If XVC 11 has little variance in properties compared to M-4 then I guess I would bump it up to...

    I have a feeling a Yojimbo with a utility oriented handle would end up a lot like the Lil' Temperance, but with a Wharncliffe blade.
    Maybe we should just wait for that to come out and see if we...

    While it's possible to re-shape the tip by sharpening the edge side, it's both difficult and will eventually grind the tip back until it is no longer covered by the handle when the knife is closed.

    There were times that I wore 3-5 knives regularly. I never got tired of carrying lots of knives, but I did get tired of buying them (says the guy who just picked up a South Fork this week).

    My first thought when I saw the idea was T-shirts, which I assume does not normally fall onto your plate. I would just put the idea on the table for the next round of those.

    I bought a book on the basics of Neural Science a few months ago, it's absolutely fascinating, lots of pictures. I have to wonder if we shouldn't try to get people like Phil Wilson and Kevin Cashen...

    My favourite stone is an 11" benchstone, just having something that big seems to make the task a lot easier.

    I was just discussing with friends last night, there seems to be a high correlation between gopher hunting and marriage in this area.

    I guess that's not going to be helpful for everyone, but if...

    I never thought I would see that kind of reference from someone like Cliff either.

    Now I'm imagining what it would be like if Sal were a Brony.

    If you buy more than one knife a year I would keep them, especially if you tend to go for knives over $100.

    That's one of the things I noticed about the Vallotton vs. most other knives. It seems extra attention was actually paid to the finish inside the hole. While I appreciate the extra attention to...

    Half the appeal for me is that it is over 4".
    I've been asking for an XL Military for years, this seems to be just as good, if not better than fulfilling that dream (I like the flatter spine).
