    Ya know, I never got good at that super quick steel technique but I sure like how it looks haha!

    To be honest, a lot of people are probably showing off doing it fast. It works, but I do it backwards and slower because it works, and makes more sense to go backwards to straighten the edge.

    Nice! Looks like you're actually using it. Nice clip. I really like the red contrast in the pic.

    Thanks, man! Yeah, I'm trying my best to actually put a beating on this thing. I don't know; it just seems like the perfect size, weight and blade shape. I was using my Native 5 LW before this, but the straight edge is just a phenomenal worker!

    Do you mean who is the guy in the vid? If so, it's me. Sal sent me a prototype to test, and I did, plus made a vid to show how awesome it is.

    Man a set of titanium or bronze scales on that would be incredible. If those are available I'll buy one tonight!

    It was because of this thread that I had to try one.
    So a New Delica arrived yesterday. I rarely order new knives because i get better deals on the exchange.

    Having a Wharncliff on a Delica frame is a winner but the factory grip is still lacking for me.

    So I changed its clothes.... The addition of a Choil makes this Wharny near perfect.

    It's been a minute since I've posted in this thread. The VG-10 is holding up nicely. I find this steel and blade shape to be perfect for what I do.

    I'm actually impressed with the FRN. I have a Native 5 LW and this Seki City stuff is just as rugged.
