    Want to try using a straight razor

    I think whipped dog is your best inexpensive (not cheap) way to get into a honed shave ready straight from the get go. Larry does a great job I got an awesome vintage made in Sheffield from him. That's an awesome looking brush crazyengineer what is it?

    Objective Sharpness Testing?

    Rigging the back pocket for extra safety.

    Check out the traditional lanyard for a British Navy knife. Easy to make and you can use while still attached to the lanyard and belt.

    Pocket knife for 8 year old boy

    He's got plenty of time for all the gee whiz bang knives that are out there as he gets older. I agree will a slippy and being taught the right way to use one. A stockman or a trapper that is quality (I didn't say expensive) will likely be with him a long time. Now where the heck did all my...
