    ^^^ dendritic cobalt?

    I had a d.c. bladed Terra 365 on the pocket today. I need to figure out how to sharpen it - they recommend you don't raise a burr to sharpen this. Who ever heard of that?!

    I actually have one of those on the way, should be here in a few days:D My Boye cobalt stuff I just touch up on crock sticks, works great. The not raising a burr thing is because it's relatively soft and the burr is hard to get rid of...just use light pressure and it touches up super quick:thumbsup:

    Today's folder is a bit of modern and a bit of traditional. 20200624-103231-6270.jpg

    He makes folders? I've got one of his utility knives in the kitchen that I enjoy very much.

    hi, thanks for being an early customer :)
    my work has certainly improved since your knife, feel free to send back your knife anytime for a cleanup at no charge,

    I've made folders for a couple of years, starting with friction folders and then modern traditional slipjoints,
    I made about 6 this time a year ago including this one,
    They are alot of work and difficult to do at a high level.
    Despite the fact that I had a unique pattern, a one of a kind forged blade, and one piece milled bolster/liner, I couldn't gain the sales interest and momentum I needed (at the price I wanted) to be able to afford to continue doing them, so I took a break, It's been a year since I made a folder.

    I even made a couple in Damasteel and with pull dots.
    They were a good effort and could use some refinement and improved flow.

    No problem at all, it's my go-to in the kitchen. Despite seeing daily use it still looks great, even better with a little patina on it.

    This is a "mini Native" from Jared Oeser (https://www.instagram.com/j.oeser_knives/) and one of his first original designs. It's a bit like a sheepsfoot blade. He makes this in two sizes, the mini is about 13% smaller and 3 3/16" closed.

    Few other pictures I had handy, enjoy!
