    Assembling A Sharpening Kit

    Mister Coffee, I would get a Norton, IB-8. A SiC stone. It will cut way faster than a diamond stone and you can use pressure. Plus, there is much more material on the stone to wear away. Whereas with a diamond the grit is attached to the plates surface is very thin and will fracture and rub off...

    Buck 124 vs Buck 120 PRO

    JBmonkey, I liked the data sheet post. Good detailed information on the steel & heat treating. I find the graphs are for power point presentations. They make it look good but in real- world use & testing there is only 4- 5 chickens difference between s90v and 440c. And the same between 440c and...

    Assembling A Sharpening Kit

    For my working, I would get a stone or plate much more coarse than a coarse diamond. Otherwise it would take too long to reprofile. DM

    Culling the flock

    Ok, I processed the last 3 this morning. I used the clip blade. I really like the looks of a drop point blade. But to be honest the clip blade has many good uses. I prefer it for birds & Fish. It also is better at digging out splinters and cleaning under my finger nails. If I were just cutting...

    Three dot Buck 110

    Ok, pencil this down as I'm trying to clear up this misinformation. 440c was used during the 3 dots (1980). All before as well. 4 dots are 425m steel (1981). Then in 1992 Buck began to Phase in 420 steel. Thus, it cannot be determined which steel it is without metallurgical testing. My money is...

    The Anvil Shed, The spot to shoot the breeze.

    It's a bull snake. I moved him to a safe location, as my wife was shouting warnings to the both of us. They went something like, ' if I catch you eating eggs in my chicken house, I'll stretch both of your hides on the barn wall'. The rest of the rant I didn't get, as I was moving fast with...
