    Strop questions

    Cool, not much to it then! Also, after using my blade, I sometimes get burrs. Does stropping even these out?

    Strop questions

    I never really did much stropping, but I now understand it's importance. I do some leather working, so I have scrap veg tan leather belts. Is this a good alternative to a conventional strop? Also, what kind of techniques are people using?

    Interested in learning how to make knives

    I'd really like to learn how to make fixed blade knives, and I was wondering what kind of tools and machinery I will need, as well as where to get steel and other resources. I have no experience, so any input helps. Thanks a lot.

    Sharpening Frequency

    What's goin on everyone? I haven't posted in a long time, but I had a question about sharpening. I have a Bark River Bushcrafter in CPM3V, and it's main use is in the kitchen. I cut meats, cut whole chickens in half, process veggies, etc. Over the past six months or so, I have sharpened it...

    AMERICAN MADE camping axe?

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I purchased a Council Tool Hudson Camp Axe...and it's garbage. I used it for the first time today, and after processing a 10in diameter log into four 2-foot long sections, the head as begun to slip off of the handle. I'm calling Council Tool on Monday...

    High quality folding knives?

    I am completely ignorant on folding knife terms. I've been a fixed blade guy for a while. What do you mean by "crinkled blade"?

    AMERICAN MADE camping axe?

    I recently got a 2Hawks Woodsman Tomahawk, and due to my ignorance on chopping tools, I learned the hard way that a tomahawk is not the ideal tool for processing fire wood and other general chopping tasks. So, I'm in need of some knowledge on camping axes. I want to be able to process decently...

    High quality folding knives?

    How does everyone feel about the 92 Eureka in coping and spear point blades? Also, I am considering the 66 Calf Roper, but I hear bad things about clip points. This model seems to be a stockman design. It is important to note that I would like to use the sheepsfoot for cutting leather, but I'd...

    High quality folding knives?

    Sorry for another post, but should I go with the coping and wharncliff combo or a sheepsfoot and pen combo? I like the handle materials for the former combination, but I like the sheepsfoot better than the coping blade. Are the differences between the two similar blades substantial?

    High quality folding knives?

    I decided that I will return my Case Stockman for a full price return, and use the money towards a GEC pattern. I think I'll go with a whittler pattern or maybe a buckaroo. I like the sheeps foot blade for cutting leather.

    High quality folding knives?

    Wow, I'm shocked by the price of Great Eastern Cutlery's prices. They are beautiful though. How does everyone feel about Case knives though? Quality product, or just another American company that's become a little over produced similar to Buck. I've owned a few Buck's and they were good, but...

    High quality folding knives?

    Hey everyone, I just purchased a Case Stockman with honey bone scales in chrome vanadium steel. It came razor sharp, beautiful, and has a clip point, sheep's foot, and spay blade. I really think it will serve me well, but out of curiosity, I was wondering if there are any smaller AMERICAN...
