Very sneaaaaakyyyyyyyyyyy, I think our customs will not like the look of those knives. :p

 

They do look cool as heck, especially this super ultra multifunction atwood tool inspired design.

I use a Spiderco triangle sharpener, do have some water stone too for fun.

The Spiderco sharpener works silly well to be fair. Even on my cheapo UKPK CTS-BD1.

I had one but I gave it away to a friend in rage.

 

The sebenza comes with a 22-23 degree angle, and it would just take foooreeeeveeerrrrrrrrrr to grind that down to the 20degree setting on the Spyderco sharpmaker.

 

I don't really like how you have to keep the knife perfectly straight when using it, there's a bit of a learning curve for a beginner like me. I'm sure it's really good once the angle of a knife is suitable for it, the diamond stones for that was a bit too expensive for me to get to help grind the edge down.

but how fast does your knife wear ... always wonder will sharpening the blade makes it smaller and smaller quickly

There isn't any noticeable size change, I don't need the bezel redone at all.

I sharpen it once a week if used heavily to newspaper shaving edge, now that I don't need to be in a kitchen for the time being. It is still sitting very sharp.

So I made a nice sandwich with slow cooked ham, cracked black pepper deli turkey, and Swiss cheese...sat down to watch Fate/Zero on Crackle...only to find that they just removed it! Gah...

 

Watched some of Resident Evil: Damnation instead. I had already seen it three or four times, but would rather watch something I know I like than most of the junk on there. (Resident Evil is the only zombie franchise I care about.)

I just remember hearing that autographs are starting to fade out from today's era and that was the first thing I found.

 

^ It was just a few posts back.

 

Maybe I should tag people in my posts in case they don't check the recent thread history. That could get annoying, though.

Which DAPs would you say are comparable in sound quality to your phone? (If you've heard enough of them to compare.)

 

I want to get full-size audio systems within the next year or two, but also have seven or so DAPs on my wish list.

I've only had the S4 for about a week, so I didn't have a chance to do any serious comparisons. One thing's for sure though, it's better than the iPod Classic.

Groovy! The iPod Classic is what I have (getting the iBasso DX90 soon). I recently Rockboxed it and was surprised how much more clear it sounds; unfortunately, it's a little sibilant and gives me a headache. I haven't attempted effectively working with the EQ. Just altering the basic bass and treble settings makes it sound too muffled/distorted.

If your profile is accurate, I would recommend you forcus on getting better headphones rather than DAPs.

A much more effective way of getting better sound.

Yeah, I'm getting the Focal Spirit Professional along with it. But look at my crazy wish list! I'm no stranger to the allure of high-end audio gear.
