    AUS 8 steel

    I have an emerson reliant in aus 8, back up to emerson mini com.

    CQC7 vs mini Commander

    the shapes might suggest piercing or slashing, i tried it on pork belly (already dead, hold your horses) mini commander stabs and slashes just fine.

    Very interested in the A100

    the a100 looks less intimidating and for petty tasks, it will be much more acceptable to use it in front of people i would think. very simple design, looks attractive. no wave though.

    Your Emerson Story

    i've had a henckels swiss army type utility/folding knife since i was 7, carried it everywhere. over the years had many different kinds, until i read about emersons, tried it at a local shop and have since graduated to the minicom. i think i'll be using this for as long as i have it.

    low cost honing steels, damaging?

    thanks for the advice. since i am living on like $2 a day here at the moment (in between jobs), can't buy a good steel right now. i tried to smooth the grooved steel on my sharpening stone a bit, it seems to be working better now, the blade edge doesn't catch anymore. i'll save up for that...
