I recently bought a Lansky basic knife sharpening kit as it has the three hones that I would need. Several of the kitchen and a hunting knife have chips in the cutting edge of the blade.  Following…Continue

 Is it the way it fits your hand when you use it or is it because you trust it to do the job when needed. Maybe its the way it looks (blade or frame configuration). There are many reasons that people…Continue

"Hey Wally... I assume you are talking 30 degrees per side. I wouldn't go any more than 25 per side for an EDC knife.Never really saw the need for micro bevelling myself. I just do a single. 420 should be pretty easy to sharpen. Are you making…"

Question about knife sharpening

I recently bought a Lansky basic knife sharpening kit as it has the three hones that I would need. Several of the kitchen and a hunting knife have chips in the cutting edge of the blade.  Following the instructions that came with the kit I was able to get most all the kitchen knives back to a very decent edge getting them to a 20 degree angle. The hunting knife is a bit more of a challenge. As a couple of the chips in the blade are pretty bad. So after using the hones that came with the kit I…See More

There are times I'm here for a few minutes and then move on.  Then there are times I'm here for quite a while reading posts on the forums and looking at many of different knives that are posted by members. But even then I've not logged in. Most of the time I do not even think about it.  I've learned quite a bit about the different types of…See More

Rough Rider Heavy Hunter series knives

  I purchased all three of the folding Lockback Heavy Hunter knives by R.R.  Needless to say I was like a kid waiting for a new toy to arrive. The first knife of the series I bought was the RR1352. When it arrived I couldn't wait to open the package. What a sight to behold it is. Its a big knife, very shiny bolsters, nice wood scales, A large frame and a very large blade for a folding knife. The blade is very very sharp and it will cut ya quick with out you realizing it until you see…See More

"I have two EDC knives, that are on me at all times. The first one is a Benchmade 585 MIni Barrage. Several reasons I like this knife are:  1. It has a 154CM blade, which is decently resistant to rusting and staining, holds a decent edge and is…"
