    Patina is coming along nicely. Fish, chicken, beef, squash, potatoes and celery.

    Not selling at MAP, but to my fellow Canucks (and any Americans as well), there are some more of these in stock at a West Coast Canadian retailer.

    Why does some of the knives have these number 087V on the blade (next to the spyderco symbole)?

    Got one for Christmas, worse ground knife I’ve ever owned. And I’ve owned most. I’m trying to fix this knife because it’s a knife I’ve wanted for a good long time. But unless I send it to someone for a re grind, these bevels will never match. One side is easily double the size of the other bevel. Both sides ground at different angles.

    I’m in the process of trying to even things out with my edge pro. I’ve fixed issues like this before, but not this bad. Bevel on the clip side is easily double the locking side. Even the grind towards the heel has a wave to it.

    Mine is not even, though probably not as uneven as yours. The more significant issue for me is how thick it is behind the edge - 0.027". I will have to take it to a belt sander or spend a lot of time on the stones to bring the shoulders down so it will be a better cutter. So much of the steel's capability is wasted with such a thick edge.

    Fully agree, I own many military models, and this one is a lemon. I will never be able to match up the shoulders, on the clip side it’s easily double the height . I don’t have my calipers with me but behind the edge is much thicker then any previous ones I’ve owned.

    Mine seems mostly even. Far better than any Benchmades I've owned.

    It’s too bad when the model in this case is a sprint run and returns may be out of the question.

    Mine isn't the worst I've seen, but is obviously off at the belly on the non lock side while gaining near the ricasso. I don't really care. I can fix it.

    I love mine, no extreme use yet though. But, I'm a amateur compared to so many here. Great question for the forum.

    I must be doing something wrong. I don't find HAP40 easy to sharpen. XHP I do find easy to sharpen....
