You making them for a psk?
Wow! Just wow!I found a coffee cup, that reminded me of my 95 year old father in law, who fought in WWII, 101st Airborne, including the Battle of the Bulge. He's a little Italian guy. He's been very good to me, so I got it for him. Been waiting a few weeks to get it. Here's what I ordered:
And here's what they sent me:
drill a hole in a piece of 1/8 or 3/16 flat stock, stick an 8p nail through it and curl the nail, then curl the strap?I made 3 snares this morning that are close to store bought. I bought aircraft cable . Everything else is from stuff I have laying around
Damn Daiz. That's the last thing I wanted to read all night long LOL. But definitely some good info there.
I'm not really a folder guy.... But I see you guys talking about benchmades.... A couple years ago I bought an offbrand one. It was made by benchmade, but branded HK. It was pretty good, I use it as my edc. It's nothing fancy but it is D2 and has g10, and works.....best part since it was an off brand, it was Cheap. Maybe that's an affordable option for you?
And I agree about the pricing on Benchmade and quality folders in general. I'm lucky to get 30% off directly from Benchmade, but they're still not cheap.
I checked out a bugout in bass pro a couple weeks ago and liked it, but wasn't the biggest fan of the grivory... I think the G10 will improve on the only area that I think needed to be improved on as far as making it a perfect EDC folder for me.... I don't plan on buying multiples... But one. Sure.
A little whiskey tonight. Crown XO. Drank my last modelo. Then tried putting a good 17 degree edge on my birudashi on the opposite side of the chisel edge with diamond stones. That didnt work out so well. Started just rolling it over. Now i have a thick edge that wont cut crap. Damn you daizee I need "warranty" work. That was obviously a manufacturer defect. LOL
Well you can certainly send it to me and I'll set the edge bevels however you want.
The main bevel angle of the grind itself is like 10 degrees, IIRC. So that plus the back side at 20 will give you an effective edge geometry of 30 degrees, inclusive. Don't go lower than that on CPM154. 30-40 is the right range. You might have unwittingly created an edge at 45-50. One has to use a different frame of reference than the centerline of a symmetrically ground blade.
So if you want to sharpen the shiny side, you'll need to reset the backside bevel to something appropriate. It would take a little doing to re-center the edge bevels and make them relatively even.
That steel can develop a serious burr. Strop on something like this: https://www.cvs.com/shop/beauty-360-nail-finishing-buffer-prodid-1790022 (this one is 4-sided, and goes all the way to a polish grit. Many of these are too coarse)
Start with step 2 if the burr is serious, else start on 3 and go to 4.
I remember the hex hawks. They were pretty dang cool.
I am sorry about your hard year and hope your fortune turns around.Been away for a while.
Missed you guys.
Your grandpa's coffee mug is killing me, Warrior.
How’s everybody holding up?
I lost my F-I-L middle of 2019, then my own dad April 2020. (Not Covid.)
Been hanging in there, working from home, keeping family close. Feel almost ready to face the world again.
Found my mother-in-law’s old spreader hidden in the back of a kitchen drawer. Wooden handle rotting away, and brass pins falling out.
Also a piece of her Corian countertop.
So I restored it into a keepsake, and useful tool, for the wife.
Did I manage to post the images right?
