The spyderco sharpmaker is magical on spydercos...

 

I have a p2 and a sharpmaker and i swear they were meant to be together.

Sharpmaker is a great tool that will last you a lifetime. Did you know that Spyderco made sharpening products long before they actually made knives? That sort of pedigree lets me know that I'm safe whenever I buy one of their products.

The German knives are very good knives. However really Japanese steel tends to be the best knife out there.

I a Cullinary Art's student... I work with Sharp Knives on a daily basis :3

 

Once though I can actually afford some decent knives e.e like the one pictured I'll be back with some better pics! Till then I've only got a dull crummy Chinese made set :/

 

German Steel ftw gents... Chinese knives are dangerously dull -.-

Agreed, either Japanese or Swedish (19C27 or 13C26) for me.  Moreso the Swedish though, imo.

 

More kitchen-knife-fi -- Mark over at http://www.chefknivestogo.com/  has been doing some cool stuff with his house brand (Richmond Knives).  I've been eyeballing the Ultimatum for a while, just can't justify another knife. :-)  Also, need to save up for a EdgePro.

When properly honed those japanese chisel grinds are downright awesomely sharp. Not for the inexperienced user. 

 

People say dull knives are dangerous, but so are knives that sharp, it will remove the life from your body it's so sharp.

Hey guys im having some trouble finding a knife I want for EDC. Looking for a fixed blade with a length of around 3.75-4.5" preferably 4.5 on the dot, with a overall length of under 10.5". Also the blade design is very important, which is also the main reason for the trouble. Im looking for a recurve midblade, like my leatherman:

http://www.amazon.com/Leatherman-830850-Skeletool-CX-Multitool/dp/B000XU43IC/ref=pd_cp_hi_0

 

With a point somewhat like this TOP Moccasin Ranger, or atleast a needle point:

http://www.topsknives.com/product_info.php?cPath=2&products_id=96

 

If anyone knows of any companies that usually design knives similar to my ideals, then feel free to reccomend some. 

 

Ive already checked SOG, Kershaw, TOPs, CRKT, Benchmade, Gerber, Leatherman, Buck, and so far nothing has wowed me. 

 

Edit: Checked Boker, and wow for 25$ im tempted to jump on this right now. Maybe design a proper handle for it first of course. 

http://www.boker.de/us/fixed-blade-knife/magnum/throwing-knife/02MB160.html

 

Also for more ideas of my ideals I rather like this knife except its quite narrow.

I might risk getting flamed for this, but SanRenMu makes some excellent <$20 EDC folders. I own about a dozen of them. They actually OEM for Spyderco and Boker. I've bought mine over at exduct.com, who ship internationally. Check out the SRM710 (Sebenza-ish), my favourite. They're bound to have a model you like.

Just ordered my first "good" knife, and it should be delivered today!  Spyderco Dragonfly 2 in the VG-10 steel.  To be used in my slowly growing collection of EDC knives (which currently includes a Buck Scholar and a "Classic" Swiss Army knife).

I love my Dragonfly!

 

 

Congrats on your purchase! :D

post #1243 of 1747

I actually received it yesterday, and I'm having fun learning how to deploy/close without slicing my fingers off.  It's definitely more aggressive looking than my Buck Scholar, but its small size makes it socially acceptable I guess.  It's smaller than I had anticipated, so perhaps something larger will need to be ordered for Father's Day.  Before I got the Dragonfly 2, I was eyeballing the Benchmade Mini Grip.  Does anyone have an opinion on that knife?

post #1244 of 1747

I really want a Mini CQC7 for my EDC but they're sold out everywhere and I'm reading that Emerson only makes things in small batches.

I'm not liking the idea of waiting 6+ months for one...

post #1245 of 1747

Anyone heard of or used this thing? Has really good reviews overall and looks super easy to get a great edge. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003IT5F14/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

Tired of dull knives. 

 

Btw I think ive decided on this knife.
