    KW Exclusive Military CF/Ti S90V + CQI Improvements

    IMO the hobby it self may have changed a bit. S90v has now been used in production knives for 20+ years. Microtech was one of the 1st. M390?

    KW Exclusive Military CF/Ti S90V + CQI Improvements

    "I reckon folks are a little bored with s90v. Imagine if this Millie had been released with 4v, cruwear, Vanax or some other steel that was perceived as newer or more interesting. It would have sold out in a day. I believe the fact that these are still available has nothing to do with the half...

    KW Exclusive Military CF/Ti S90V + CQI Improvements

    KW Exclusive Military CF/Ti S90V + CQI Improvements

    Nobel of you. Many of us have been waiting / asking for ten years. LOL LOL Requested that the M4 Ti Millie be tip up. But clip design is the issue. The orig M4 Millie took almost 2 years to get made and sold out in pre-order. (was a real pain for Spyderco back then) Not a money maker for...

    Started at 1500, then 600. Like the 600 look so far. Not too bad working in reverse. LOL LOL

    Mirror to high hand satin

    Did a mirror polish on carbon steel. Got it 99.999%. But not perfect........... Plan to go back to a high hand satin. What are some options/recomendations? 0000 steel wool? 1200 grit? Hand scotch brite? Or does it matter? LOL LOL Thanks!
