A great strope to make a RAZOR EDGE..

Mar 19, 1999
i wanted to share this info. with all of you, i found out a great way to make your knives a razor sharp cutting machine. First, this can only be done with plain edge knives, and knives with a relatively straight blade, not knives like the Civilian, or any other odd shaped blade. Here it is, sharpen your knife on a fine grit dmt diamond stone until you have the "meat-cutting" edge, then, if you have a FORMICA table-(only the white smooth formica) get the knife and strope it on the formica from handle to tip, try this until you get a really shaving sharp edge, im telling you it works great, especially on a bowie like the trailmaster, or a benchmade afck.
Very intersting... I'm gonna have to try that! Anotheer good way is a sandpaper like sheet called "crocus cloth". You can find it in almost any hardware store, and it's pretty cheap.($1.99 for a three pack) It's sort of like a brown colored linen with an extremely fine grit. Just don't use water with it, or you will end up with a big muddy mess! Puts a pretty good razor edge on carbon steel.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.-H.P. Lovecraft
I'll have to try that too. I usually just strop the edge on the cardboard back of a legal pad and that does the trick for me.

Myco: I love that quote! Ain't Lovecraft da greatest?

"Apropos of sleep, that sinister adventure of all our nights, we may say that men go to bed daily with an audacity that would be incomprehensible if we did not know that it is the result of ignorance of the danger."

Me quoting Lovecraft quoting Baudelaire.


Iä! Iä! Cthulhu Fhtagn!
Ph'nglui Mnglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh Wgah'nagl Fhtagn! Glad to see another fan of good old Eich-pi-El. For your info, my full screen name (which I don't use here) is Mycolathotep... For the reading pleasure of thos who dont know the first paragraph of The Call fo Cthulhu, Here is is...

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant
that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and
of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."

Now for real fun, I'm gonna read you a passage from the REAL Necronomicon, so here it...wait, did you hear that? *eldrich flapping noises* AHHHHH!!! GET IT OFF OF ME!!!! NOOOOOO!!!....
