    DMT dia-sharp scratches.

    I got new stones a few weeks back, and I have noticed the same massive scratching on the EF plate in particular. I used a cheap smith & wesson knife to break it in, so I'd imagine no hard carbides like there would be in S30V, etc. The quality of these plates is NOTHING like it was 10 years ago...

    CS Ti-Lite - any bad feedbacks ?

    I had one over 10 years ago. It's a cool looking knife, but the quality is mediocre. It's not the most functional IMO

    I Think I've Chipped My Blade - What Now?

    I did a dumbass thing a few months back and took a swing at some free-hanging phone cord with my S110V Native 5. It left a tiny nick in the edge like the one you pictured. I'm not worried because it will come out eventually after sharpening

    Pocket knife suggestions to cut up cardboard

    A thin blade is going to help a lot. Even my VG-10 Spyderco Delicas last on cardboard for some time because the blade is so thin. That being said, cardboard is very abrasive on any edge, so expect to sharpen your knife often regardless of the steel. S110V will do noticeably better on cardboard...

    FRN or G10 handles on Spydie ?

    Me too. I like Spyderco's FRN better than their G10 because the FRN: 1. doesn't wear pants material as easily 2. is lighter 3. can be beaten to hell without me feeling bad or caring too much 4. provides better grip Yes, I believe that FRN provides better grip, but specifically because of...

    Brands to stay away from

    Agreed. There are things like computers and electronics where there is virtually no other practical option. I avoid the enticement of the sirens with their low prices by putting some extra $$ so that we might still have those options for things that are our hobbies and passions.

    Pants leg stropping

    I completely agree. I think it can straighten out a very thin wire edge and make it seem sharp, but I'm not sure that it would do much to remove metal. It's very useful for cleaning up small crumbs of cardboard and whatnot after cutting, though

    Favorite steel ?

    Lately, ZDP-189 and S110V: easy burr removal and excellent edge retention. I'm liking S110V because it's very stainless, and it can hold a coarse edge for a long time, which means I can finish on DMT F and not worry too much that I don't have a mirror polish

    Manix 2 lockback

    This is what I envisioned when I first heard about the original Manix 2 (the one that ended up being hollow-ground, CBBL). I love the tip-down support. Can't wait to get one.
