    Lanyard ideas !

    Thanks for the info. Can you post the links here or post the name I would need to google to find them online? I have some of the small keychain size Nite Ize S-biners, but I'd like something smaller like those in the photo.

    One of the worst things I have ever seen (story only)

    If not in Lincoln, where did it happen? I'd be interested in reading more details the local media has surely reported on it by now. You sure have quite a lot of very specific details surrounding the wreck for someone not directly involved with the emergency response, especially considering it...

    One of the worst things I have ever seen (story only)

    Must have been a shocking thing to witness for sure. Did this happen in Lincoln, AL? I am curious how it was determined so soon after the wreck that the cause was texting and driving? Did they recover the vehicle and body/bodies of the occupants of the vehicle that went off the bridge that night?

    My Deal With heekma- Cool Knife, Poor Communication and Very Stressful

    You received the knife, and seem to be pleased now. Probably a good time to update or change the title of the thread (and first post) to reflect the issue has been resolved.

    Couple sharpening questions

    I've never used an edge pro, but it know many have, and it is a great system from what I've read and seen. I went with the Wicked Edge system instead of the Edge Pro, but after getting the Work Sharp, I will be selling my Wicked Edge. It makes awesome edges, but the setup is not something I...

    Couple sharpening questions

    Mark your edge with a sharpie. That will show you exactly what part of the edge bevel you're hitting with the stone. My money is betting the belly is a different angle and you aren't hitting it. May need to reprofile you're edge, but that would mean changing from factory convex to v edge, or...

    Lanyard ideas !

    Very nice, Ted! Can you tell me where you got those clips that are on many of your lanyards? The one that looks like it's attached with a piece of metal with two holes in it. What about your beads? Many look like the ones I've seen at Hobby Lobby, but the solid metal ones I haven't seen before.

    My Deal With heekma- Cool Knife, Poor Communication and Very Stressful

    Google "paypal horror stories" for countless examples of customers getting screwed by them. I have used paypal many times. It's a great service when transactions go smoothly. When it doesn't, it's a craps shoot as to which side of the roll you're gonna fall on. If you are transferring money...

    Work Sharp Ken Onion edition is FREAKIN' AWESOME! Long Post

    Then there is also the other possibility that your original bevel was narrower than the angle you're using on the WS, and you're only sharpening the actual edge, like putting a convex micro bevel rather than actually reprofiling your entire edge bevel. This would also explain why you got a burr...

    Work Sharp Ken Onion edition is FREAKIN' AWESOME! Long Post

    One way to see the edge being convex is to look at light reflection on the bevel. A flat v edge will reflect light top to bottom, yet a convex edge will reflect light only on part of the edge. I don't know if that makes sense, as it's really something you have to actually see. If you look up...

    My Deal With heekma- Cool Knife, Poor Communication and Very Stressful

    Unless you are buying an eBay auction, paypal could care less about your claim, and even eBay auctions through PayPal can leave you high and dry with no recourse when things go wrong. Only way I use paypal is by paying with my AmEx, because I know I won't be responsible for the payment if the...

    My Deal With heekma- Cool Knife, Poor Communication and Very Stressful

    In his defense, provided what he's saying is true, I can understand not thinking to communicate with someone I sold a knife to if my life was put on hold for a sudden serious family emergency. Put yourself in his shoes... Let's say your wife or child was suddenly diagnosed with a serious or...

    Check your email spam folder just to make sure his messages aren't getting filtered. Did you guys agree on delivery confirmation or package insurance? I am thinking if he did in fact mail it, and has proof of this by way of delivery confirmation ticket, then it's gonna be a post office issue...

    Work Sharp Ken Onion edition is FREAKIN' AWESOME! Long Post

    Honestly I haven't paid that much attention to the exact speed setting, but tend to start at or near the lowest. I was concerned about edge heat, and figured the slower the better. Of course, at those speeds, it takes more passes, but I'm less likely to accidentally recurve my edge from leaving...

    Work Sharp Ken Onion edition is FREAKIN' AWESOME! Long Post

    Great info, and something I hadn't thought about! I like that you didn't tell us not to use other belts, but rather simply cautioned that we could get inconsistent results, and explained why. Can you say how much deflection we should get with the WS belts at a given pressure? Also, since the...
