    Adam, how do you like 5160 steel compared to the 1084 you at one time said you like alot for your knives, any differences in edge retention or sharpening? I seem to have a harder time sharpening 5160, could be the temper on the knife or my inability to sharpen well. I am interested in the camp knife but I wanted to get some answers to my stated thoughts above.

    I responded to the 5 1/2 incher, I like the black micarta better than the green one, so this one is still up for grabs. see other thread.

    I like 5160 allot for large knives, it can take allot of abuse and I find it easy to sharpen. My best guess on your sharpening issues is either it is tempered to soft or it's edge is to steep; hard to say thow. Have you ever tried Iz Turley's methed using sand paper? I know from expierance it works well.

    1084 is still my hands down favorite. The best way I can explain it is it has the edge holding of 1095 (in hard use even better) but it's much tougher.

    thanks, have heard of the sand paper method, on top of a mouse pad, correct? Inform me a bit, there are threads on here how to sharpen using this method I will have to check out later.
