A.Wright does free shipping world wide the last time I checked...they're very well made and the C70 carbon steel they use is quite good!

My edc. Made by small company here in Finland. I've used to puukko's and havent used serious folder until recently. I love the scandi grind. Blade is D2 steel and slabs are curly birch. Liner lock.

^ that sucks.

spyderco knives have been the sharpest knives out of the box in my experience - they usually scare hair of your arms

anyhow, i don't feel like i know my knife until i sharpen it to my liking

if I bought a sharpmaker, would I be able to get it to factory sharp or sharper? Or should I send this knife back to the seller for an exchange?

I'm guessing I can't just walk into sears or canadian tire and expect to get this sharpened properly.

next purchases: oxide coat military, SS police, sharpmaker

i don't use sharpening systems

i use a diamond hone for supersteels

and an arkansas stone for everything else

hand sharpening is very gratifying and that's how i learned how to sharpen

that said, you can get a knife hair popping sharp using any method, really

before i got a diamond hone, my locksmith (who also has a knife sharpening service) sharpened my supersteel knives

i've sent my benchmade opportunist back to benchmade for a sharpening and tune up

but seriously, you don't know your knife until you sharpen it

thanks for the tips man. I really don't know anything about knives

the police3 is my first knife. even at home we never had proper cutlery because momma was afraid of knives.

as for sharpening, something tells me I'll totally ruin my knife if I attempt to sharpen it myself - system or stone.

i don't think a 2.5" blade size is too small

that's plenty long to handle EDC duties

length doesn't matter

sharpness and pocketability are the most important qualities in a knife

what are the thoughts on Opinel?

I ordered a standard beeech stainless 8

but now I'm considering giving it away and buying an olivewood carbon 6 and a bubinga stainless slim 12.

also thinking about an s90v military or paramilitary - which one though..

opinel make fantastic knives

you won't be disappoint

the carbonne blades are where its at though

w/r/t the military vs. para

i'd go with the latter

seems like it'd be a better size for EDC

know that i haven't handled either in person

oh, my new pickup:

does your knife's blade flex if you pressure it by hand?

would it be appropriate to cut up drywall with my police?

what about cutting down a tree

what are the limits

what would spoil the blade?

I had an Opinel mushroom cutter for a bit. #10 is the one I think. Using a CRKT right now, and ordering a SOG Trident soon.

Was playing a bit of COD Black Ops, reminded me of my SOG knife:

Here's another couple, here's my favourite (a Japanese Spyderco, the Street-Beat):

Reminding myself I need to make a new wrap and rein for this one:

What size did you pick up ? N°8 or 9 is from far the most common choice here in france and it's long enough for an apple

No.8

it's a good size - makes a decent laoded fist

but too small to cut straight through an apple.

best part, being so cheap, is that I can take pleasure abusing her

Fällkniven TK4

SxUxf.jpg

i bought a tk4 when i was in japan. really nice knife. lock-up was solid, too. so sad i lost it. tried to replace it with the U2, but it wasn't the same. opening wasn't smooth if i wanted little to no bladeplay, so i returned it. i would buy another tk2, but the price was so much affordable in jp :(

Those Tre Kronor series are made in Sweden and definitely on another level compared to U2.

I sold mine because I really need one hand opening and pocket clip.

anyone have experience with a ZT0350?

thinking of getting one, but it seems a little big/wide for EDC. would love to hear some opinions. if it is too large, i'll probably go with a spyderco leafstorm.

I currently EDC a mini grip for reference and its a good size.
