    Adding a strop to my routine has been a game changer. Mine is home made too.

    Blade Show this weekend. I'm looking for steel, handle materials, and sharpening stuff. I'll report back on Sunday.

    Things have progressed still further I'm now the proud owner of the Ken Onion version as well as the original version.
    I'm gonna need more knives...

    Hey Jeff, I have quite a bit of ipe, and will have some cumaru you can have in December/January.

    We go through A LOT of 14” concrete cutting blades that can be good steel. I’ve saved a few thinking I was going to start making blades, but it’s unlikely to happen in the near future.

    FYI, I ran across some diamond rods for the Spyderco system. They work awesome to re-edge old blades that were destined for the belt sander. Probably will ditch the white/fine rods and stick with the diamond and brown in the set.

    And so it begins. Went out a got my first knife that I dont really have a specific purpose for.
    But it is a utility/tactical blade so bound to find some use for it. Maybe opening the box of the next knife I buy...:rofl:

    Did a restoration job on three Argentinean steak knive recently.
    They were pretty roached when I got them.
    Rusty and definitely not sharp.
    There now gleaming and sharp as.
    It was a great project to work on and has given me a bit of confidence to do work other than just kitchen and filleting knives.
