    I'm gonna buy one more knife and call it good. Done! Finito!

    I want a custom build. 99% sure it will be an Adventure Sworn Huntsman. 1/8 blade, convex grind. The buying process is a fucking nightmare. Don't ask.

    I looked at that a while ago. Seemed like a giant cluster. Have you looked at Bark River at all? You can find them on dlttrading.com (who carry a lot of knifes and are great peeps to deal with).

    Worth the hassle. Cody and Leif make incredible blades, you'll have a really long wait for a custom build.

    Have you considered Matt Paul at MP Knives? Hand forged, and incredible knives as well.

    Bark River and Adventure Sworn are on too opposite sides of the spectrum, incomparable.

    He's a great guy, Cody and Leif (Adventure Sworn) and Matt are really incredible people. Matt is legit as legit can be, heirloom quality tools, meant to be beaten and worked.

    World's away from mass production makers.

    yea. bark river. very good stuff.

    but finding "the one" has been fun. i'm not a fan of finger guards..i looked at the Behrings..fingerguards.


    i just want a simple profile. gentle drop point, a great carbon steel blade. i found an avenue to buy an Adventure Sworn. it wont be totally my choice in custom options..but it will be one of his random blades he puts out. slightly cheaper...i might get brown micarta instead of black..or wood. whatever.

    one came up recently that was damn close to my specs. timing is EVERYTHING!! i was at a restarant heading to AZ to hunt deer. all my "mad money" that my wife has ZERO voice in how i spend it..wadded up in my pocket to use for my deer tags, gas..etc. you blink..whamo..blade is sold. i get new "mad money" this sunday.. i'll be ready cash-wise, but maybe a Huntsman wont come up.

    i talked to Cody. the Huntsman comes in either Scandi, Convex..or a merge he calls Scandivex..i want either of the last two.

    cash ready sunday..hope the right blade comes up. i have a backup..his Explorer knife. even more gentle drop point..but longer overall knife. either one of these pops up..i am gonna high five myself.

    That's about what it is, 30 seconds or so once they pop up for sale before they're gone to someone else.

    His scandivex is phenomenal from what I have heard, if you get one, post pics! Good luck!

    you know when you promise your wife your just gonna drink "one" beer?..so you reach for that gigantic can of FOSTERS..or a 40oz..

    it's like that. i have knives everywhere. we are on an ANTI-hoarder movement at my home. i find one knife and will ditch a bunch of them.

    one..okay..maybe five..max..oh..six. Mora's are so cheap, they dont count. i am driving my wife insane with my obsession with things. archery..got my bows down to one..rifles..two.

    shotguns..i have a problem, but garage sale time..maybe. cars? yah.

    ;)

    With scandivex, all you'll need is a good quality leather strop and some compound. Stropman is a good one, I have one from another maker but I can't remember the maker. I think it's in my center console. :anonymous:

    I haven't taken a stone to my convex blades in years. Just stropping. If you use yours for skinning, just take a few more breaks than you normally would and strop before the edge gets too dull, it will make it a razor in short order and you can keep going. A stropped edge is a maintained edge!

    For scandi, I avoid the strop as mine is too soft of leather and rounds the cutting edge and dulls it. I use a stone on the flat bevels.

    When's the sharpening class at that place you were talking about before? I checked their site, pretty awesome.

    dunno..i havent signed up yet. soon.

    but Spring turkey season is about to come up..hahhaha..my poor wife. damn lucky i figured out how to make a turkey breast "tonkatsu" that she loves.


    you are the second person to tell me to only use a strop. what compound oo you like? i do use an old belt. i stand on one end, pull the other up tight and strop away. i use it as my last move..and usually as my only move. my Benchmades have never been sharper. i dont use a compound, but it seems to still work some. enough.
