    Large Sebenza/Insingo FULL BACK SPACERS...

    As Steve mentioned, I loaned him my Insingo to complete the back spacer design. Well I received the knife back today and WOW! The back spacer is terrific. Fits perfectly and looks great. I would add some picture but those that Steve added above are far better than I could take. If y'all are...

    Lionsteel ROK - New M390 Blade Lionsteel Solid Knife

    I have looked at several Lionsteel knives and never purchased. With this design, the Lionsteel team will get my money. Perfect EDC size for me, innovative clip, flipper and great steel.

    My very first Sebenza Saturday...

    I would take it apart, sharpened the blade, add some CRK grease to the pivot, clip it to you pocket and use it. Great knife. First one is special.

    Sharpener overload

    I struggled with the cost of the Wicked Edge but have one now. I also have a few extra stones and the new arms. Terrific system. Great edges, as much polish as you want and very repeatable. I used to free hand. I was fairly good at free hand sharpening and I enjoyed it. Interestingly...

    What's the best sharpening system

    I use a Wicked Edge on my Sebenzas. Simply put it is fantastic. Wickedly expensive but fantastic. I have added the upgraded arms and more stones through the years. Once you get the hang of it by sharpening a couple cheaper blades you are set. Now when I sharpen my Sebenzas I start with...

    What would you like to see from LionSteel?

    I have thought about what I’d like from Lionsteel for a while. Also, I have often looked but never purchased a Lionsteel blade. I likely will buy one just have not yet. A Tispine flipper on bearings in M390 would get my money tonight.

    Wicked edge grit progression

    I like the 800/1000 stones. After setting the bevel to my desired level I typically start sharpening with the 600 then go 880/1000 to save steel on the blade. I purchased the super fine and micro fine stones for refinement/polishing and now I don’t use the strops that often. Breaking in the...

    Edge pro vs Wicked Edge

    I used to sharpen by hand and got good results. Then 5+ years ago I started looking at guided systems. I went with the WE and have since upgraded the arms and added stones/strops. While I have never used any other guided system, the WE results are terrific. The ability to reprofile and then...

    Inkosi Insingo - New Batch coming in September!!!

    I woke up yesterday thinking I would get an Inkosi Insingo. My thinking was I like many features of my 25 compared to my Large Insingo but I like the blade shape on the Insingo. I had all but decided to part with the money and increase my CRK fleet by 50% to a total of three. Then something...

    Wicked edge tips

    Loupe + angle cube + Sharpie + cheap knife practice knife + going slow = mirrored edges WE is really a great product. Once you sharpen a couple you will be amazed at the results you get. Keep a journal as well. Helps with tuning and repeatability.

    Making a Hinderer great again

    Never been a big Hinderer fan but that MP1 and your comments about the detects on the new models has me thinking maybe I should give them another chance. Nice WE work BTW. That 15 dps has to be a great slicer. Thanks for sharing.

    Sebenza Edge Angle

    Same as Halden for me...18 degrees on Wicked Edge has been my standby for a long time. For me it's the best combination of sharpness and edge retention.
