    V Ground Backpackers! $120 shipped with sheath

    Awesome review! Your 11 strand wrap looks great! I have a huge cord stash, I have to check it out. I'd be more than happy to send you a new sheath, the retention should be great for a necker. Please send me your address as I just have to! They don't really click in with the grind and holstex...

    V Ground Backpackers! $120 shipped with sheath

    Thanks! I'm honored that you are getting one. It's just the pic, that's a double ground one. KSF did a better job with pics than me that's for sure. I do still offer the chisel version in .11" at fairlyknives.com

    How To Can you identify this scale material?

    That's blue resin over natural or white burlap, probably custom being that it is in Ukraine. I'd recommend G.L. Hanson or Shadetree Custom Composites for that type of material.

    How To Dymalux question

    That's a big bow, who did you buy it from? I constantly get bowed material from the same place. I'd consider returning it if it has a 3/16" gap.

    How thin before sharpening?

    If you don't have a micrometer or at least some feeler gauges to check it with a standard credit card is an OK reference. I'd go a fair bit thinner for most knives and about/almost that thickness for a camp knife. If you need more than a 220 belt to apex the microbevel it is probably too thick...

    Chisel/ hollow ground blade

    I do a ton of hollow chisel grinds, have done several thousand. Go thin at the edge and big on the wheel for best performance. Zero grind on dominant hand side with reverse microbevel - least steering, super easy to sharpen, relatively aggressive cutter Zero grind on dominant side with same...

    Lots of eye issues have slowed me down on folders... I am finally really recovering from my eye surgeries and ready to get back on them. I no longer do my own heat treat because of my eye but am prepping them right now to send to heat treat. I'd say 2-3 months and if I recall correctly you get...
