    Delica Stiffness??

    Ok thanks. I have no problem with not flicking the knife. It just annoyed me that the other was so smooth.

    Delica Stiffness??

    Hey Guys, I currently have 2 delica's. One of them is smooth and easy to open. The other is stiff to open. I have tried adjusting the pivot and I can't make it any easier to open without a large amount of horizontal play. I think it has to do with the lock bar so I oiled the lock bar pivot and...

    using wet dry sand paper as part of my sharpening system

    As long as you can free hand sharpen it will work great. I have used it alot. If your looking for a V edge back with glass or other smooth/hard surface. If you want a convex edge then back with a smooth/soft surface (leather, mousepad)

    Best Spyderco for under $60?

    The delica is a great knife. Its on of my favorite edc blades. I don't have an endura but I suspect that its just as good as the delica. There is also the native FRN which is also a good edc knife except that it doesn't slice very well and really struggles with deep cardboard cuts.

    High Edge Retention Kitchen Knife??

    Didn't think he'd be able to get both, I just posted what he asked for. I will be the one to sharpen his knives and I don't mind sharpening hard steels. He won't strop it so it will need to be able to hold a decent age for about 6 months (not unnecessary shaving sharp but a decent working edge)...

    High Edge Retention Kitchen Knife??

    Hey Guys, My uncle has asked me to find him an 8 and a 10 inch kitchen knife. His knives knives are only going to be sharpened every 6 months (approx), so long edge retention is a must (Its his top criteria). He is willing to pay up to $150 per knife. What are your guy's recommendation. What are...

    Hawk Bill with a index finger flipper?

    You could always put 2 washes and a screw (like the pivot screws) on the spydie hole on the spyderco. You could also buy one of those quick stud things and put it on a spyderco.

    Ok, I'm buying stones to freehand with.

    It should even out over time. I reapply every month.

    Ok, I'm buying stones to freehand with.

    I'd try to even out the compound more but I don't think it matters really, just rub it in a bit more by hand. I find I learn more about sharpening every time I sharpen a knife. Your Welcome -George
