    KME help needed

    This may be some of your problem, Maybe start over and make sure you raise a burr. Have you watched any of the videos on Youtube?

    KME help needed

    1500 grit should be plenty sharp. You could try a shallower angle but even a 23 degree blade properly sharpened up to 1500 grit should make hair fly. What kind of knife is it and what steel is it? I am wondering if maybe you are not raising a burr completely before switching grits.

    I lost a nice medium sized Douk Douk the other day while shopping for a new chair with the wife.... dang thing must have slipped out of my pocket into one of the several chairs I tried on that day.... I didn't even notice it till I got home.

    no fingernails...which knives done require fingernails to open them?

    Douk Douks are easily pinched open. Most of them don't have a nail nick for that reason, my beloved squirrel has a nail nick but I don't think its deep enough to use as such. The GEC 15 boys single clip bladed Boys knife is also a breeze to pinch open

    Earl Sees the World!

    If Earl has any interest I would like to show him around bat country here in Virginia, maybe we could make the short trip to one of NASCAR's favorite playgrounds. Small town South West Virginia/North East Tennessee would do him so good....

    To Force a Patina, or Not to...

    When I get a new knife that I want to patina, I just up my fruit intake, peel and slice a few apples or pears, maybe an orange, use real lemons or limes in my drinks. You will be shocked at how fast a new knife will darken up (and how much better you will feel with the fruit intake)

    Knife Cleaning

    I live about an hour and a half from there, I got a bottle as a throw in from a drunken knife ordering binge during the Saturday night Knife show on Direct TV... I think maybe the lady felt sorry for my credit card...... It works good, a little dab goes a long way. I am not sure if it is food...

    Knife Cleaning

    I am a traditional sip joint guy so disassembly is a no go, I have a cheap ultra sonic cleaner that I run my traditionals when I change out EDC's (then lube with Ballistol, (food safe and cheap) for storage). Most times I will clean the knife I am EDCing out under the sink with hot water dry it...

    Single Bladed Traditional Folder under $35

    No Douk Douks have a super strong backspring, one of my all time favorite carry knives. A small Douk would fit your criteria and they get stupid sharp very easily.
