Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I just got to thinking that Scandi blades are kind of hard to maintain? You need a flat surface and a good stone or wet/dry sandpaper. But other blades you just need a stone from a river bed. In SHTF doesn't taht mean Scandi is a bad option? I am not trying to piss anyone off. I would actually like good arguments why I'm wrong.
