    I have heard more than one person comment that the Peak 2 was like a modern 110.
    Congrats on your new Peak2. I hope you like it as much as I like mine.
    Lookin' good! :thumbsup:
    There's somethin' beautiful about a well used knife.

    @cbach8tw Put that Patriot to work and post up some pics.

    A pic because this thread needs more pics! :D

    Not that the Peak was not sharp as it came, but I still stropped it just for fun. Damn it's sharp now. The steel seems to respond well to stropping and the good geometry helps. This is a serious tool and looks good at the same time. I have handled one version of the new Buck 110:s, those light versions and I must say I like this more.

    Wish I had another filler plate, though. Quess I have to make one to fill the clip side.

    Tried stropping my two handed Peak on cardboard, did okay, but still not a great edge yet. W
    I'll try my diamond whet stone, the maybe my strop bat. Any ideas to get the edge better?

    Maybe get some diamond stropping compound for stropping. I use the diamond compound applied to copy paper pulled tight over the Washbord or a balsa wood strop. The Washboard is the cool invention of @HeavyHanded a long time Bladeforums member.
    Here is a vid that shows how to use it.

    mine is as thick as my peak. Around same as what that guy has.
    I though it was normal. On one side the bevel is bigger than the other. I thought maybe it will sharpen out, but that bigger side stayed larger.
    I still like the knife. it gets very sharp and holds edge good for sandvik and it's still very slicey. I'd get another one, but I am just into different kind of knife.
    I like the little ghost face on the scale though :)

    This pic shows the grind thickness better.

    Well, the manly Canada site restocked s90v wasps, and I asked by email if they were 2019 stock. So, I have one on the way! Can’t wait to try it out.
