    Oh, I still have my game. For example, does your wife buy new magazine and book subscriptions for the "free gifts"? Mine does, and she got two folding knives for five bucks--my guess is that you immediately recognize the design.

    The knife was worth 2.50 American, but now it's worth a couple of hundred.

    I'll admit to being insane, but that doesn't mean I've lost my "edge."

    Yea, I had almost resigned to accepting that @The Tourist had fell off the wagon and had succumbed to another red head.
    I will choose to enjoy the journey that God has prepared for me. Hidden Content

    Tourist's knives are so sharp, the shadows of the blade will cut your fingers off!!




    I think some version of that story won the National Liars Contest back in the late 80's.

    Oh, that's just what the doctor ordered. Lots of friends, no riff-raff, and no cats to work up my allergies.

    As for polishing, I posted in another thread on what I use. I buy waterstones fro Ken Schwartz, he has a contact directly in Japan. The composite stones are even way up the grit table--I have stones starting at 140 grit all the way to 30,000. I also have his emulsions and suspensions, but the real hero is his nanodiamond slurry. One bottle gets you 3.2 million grit, and if you just won the lottery, I can polish your edge out to 5.4 million grit.

    As for the forum, I wish I had never left, it's a jungle out there...

    Well, as I got into the knife sharpening kick I learned a valuable lesson...my selection of whet stones to procure must be equal to the amount of patience I have....So I got a chain saw file and now...if I got ta cut someone....its gonna hurt them a lot.

    OSG, I believe there is an edge for every need. As for time and patience, some of my most relaxed moments are over the stones.

    I just worked several hours (and the change of daylight) to refine a Kershaw. Now, we both know what my wife is going to do to that edge going out tonight for dinner with the girls. That beautiful bezillion grit edge is going to be banged against every porcelain item in the restaurant.

    But my wife is going to have a wonderful time. Even if she has a steak, it will be sliced perfectly. So I had a relaxing time, and she will have a relaxing time.

    Heck, it's my bevel, I can repair it in an hour or two...
