My last TwoSun - Cos they are more miss than hit .

A) TS16 is bolted together really nice ( Really )
B) The blade is a monolith , much more massive than it needs to be .
C) Factory edge gave 300 slices after being stropped ( I detected a bur )
D) My 22deg 180 grit guided edge returned 250 slices shrug.gif
E) I put the blade on the whetstone grinder and the factory grind was poor .. ( All over the place )

I am yet to test the whetstone grinder edge ...
That blade is so huge , that flipping the blade open gives you felt recoil . icon_eek.gif
The factory grind was really poor , and the whetstone grinder is really good at showing up poor grinds .
So there will be one more slice test .

The clip , I hate the belt clip .
The rear or *** end of the knife is sharp / pointy / irritating .
If you fidget this knife for any length of time , you get a sore hand .
I de horned the rear end , and now its good . But that clip needs to go .
I really want to like this knife , just depends on that blade steel .

TS16 off the whetstone grinder ... melodramatic.gif
Scored a 650 ..
Yeah , my last TwoSun knife is a monster cutter @ 650 ..
I removed the clip , and it was comfortable .

facepalm2.gif Of course , the last one has to be TEMPTING ! crying.gif

So ,
A) Has my grinding gotten better ?
B) Has this TS got decent steel ?
C) How bad was the factory grind ?
D) How bad are the other TwoSun knives when this one can do 650 ?

shrug.gif facepalm2.gif No , I'm not buying more TwoSun . This is the latest and greatest and the last one .
