    Have you ever wished for Spyderco Triangle stones on Edge Pro

    When I said I wanted to The whole point is the triangles fit into the curve so that I do not have to straighten the blade edge and remove blade width off an already skinny blade. I give up.

    ZDP-189 and Cowry-X: Overrated or Super Steel?

    I haven't read the doom and gloom yet; I just started on the thread. Only a few posts in I have to say : Keep this up and we will all be telling the knife makers all we are capable of using is 1085 or what ever the heck. NO THANK YOU.

    What's your favorite budget sharpener? Do they work?

    Nah that's standard operating procedure. Case knows you like a challenge. Just rub it on a sharpening stone, preferably a very coarse one for a little bit and you would be surprised at the transformation. I just got that Doctor's knife and the edge is all burred and rolled over to one side...
