    REVIEW: [RRS] Retractable Ruby Sharpener

    Thanks for the write up! Any idea what the hardness of this material is relative to ceramics, aluminum oxide or other sharpening abrasives?

    For Sale ***SOLD ***WTS: Microtech Ultratech

    Re: WTS: Microtech Ultratech Yeah, sorry. The Ultratech is larger than the UTX-85. In fact, the UTX has it's name because it's 85% the size of the Ultratech.

    For Sale ***SOLD ***WTS: Microtech Ultratech

    I'd like to sell this Microtech Ultratech, tanto edge, black blade. Near mint condition. Never carried. Birthday is 2/2020. It's never cut anything apart from one sheet of catalog paper. If you look closely at the show side of the blade, there is a faint scuff mark perpendicular to the edge...

    Thoughts on best clip option for Rotary

    Quite so! Thanks, Jon. I wanted to know how far that clip extends down toward the rotary mechanism.

    Old school

    Thanks for posting this thread. My grandfather also fought in WWII, although he was in Europe. I never saw a Ka-Bar, but he had a few old school folders, case knives mostly. I remember watching him sharpen the knives on his "Arkansas" stone, which was literally a large, jagged rock cut flat on...

    Such a dramatic improvement after sharpening suggests that the factory edge may have been burnt. Also, you may have corrected bad factory edge geometry.

    Wet Knife Sharpener ( Not a review ) Rather edge performance as a result of

    Thank you. Your efforts are deeply appreciated, but I hope that my post doesn't put you to any extra expense. The photo you posted is high enough in quality for our purposes. Sometimes lighting can effect the appearance of an edge. I wondered if a controlled set of photos before and after...

    Wet Knife Sharpener ( Not a review ) Rather edge performance as a result of

    I appreciate the close up shot of your edge bevel. I'd be curious to see a similar shot of a fresh edge without stropping, compared to the same edge after stropping. No cutting in between. Also, what is the grit level of that grindstone? And are you using a knife jig or going freehand?

    Advice - why do I need (another) knife?

    This is very true. There are certain tasks that a thinly ground knife may not perform well, or indeed, even survive. However, one of may complaints about the knife industry today is that it is difficult to find knives thinly ground for cutting. When I say this, I don't mean that everything...

    Wicked Edge Gen 3 Pro: Shortcomings and Solutions

    When you say "grinding services," are you referring to those mail order outfits that use belt grinders? The thought of it makes my liver quiver. Powered, low grit abrasives needlessly blasting mass quantities of steel from a perfectly good knife, heating up the edge and ruining the temper. My...

    HDS Systems EDC Holsters # 1

    I've spent a lot of time looking at EDC pocket organizers, belt sheaths and other carry options. Every time I scan a menu of holsters, looking for something that is pre-patterned to accommodate my chosen tools, I realize I'm going backwards. Why should someone else's design dictate what light...

    Malkoff MD2 Question

    Here is what I've learned from the forum. The multi level drop ins were not designed to work with the high low ring. However, it's possible to get six levels of light, that is, a high and a low with each of the three modes. Some people report success by tightening the high/low ring first, then...
