    HSS blanks

    How to get that fishy smell off...

    I use my carbon KJE mora for this and when it stinks, i would wash it with detergent. sun it a few days it should be fine. If i really want the smell off fast, lemon / bleach would probably be my choice. Remember to scrub the area where the blade joins the handle.

    Opinion on stainless opinel / mora needed

    Hi I have tried mora in carbon and stainless and i find that the carbon version edge seems to last better than stainless. I use it for bait cutting duties with a stainless and a carbon. The stainless doesnt seem as sharp. I sharpen them before the trip. I have used the carbon steel mora for...

    About these "Mora" knives?

    Personally i think they hold a great edge and is unmatched in the price /quailty aspect. try their laminated too. If you have opinions regarding the triflex would like to hear.

    I breathed in some metal dust today...how bad it that

    Get the paint and cover tested for lead and cadmium etc. my guess is that its unlikely that steel particles would be so tiny to be breath in easily but paint and the fine dust even from the stone might. 3M Particulate Respirator 3M 8210 N95 is what I use for sanding and grinding. Is that...
