    I was looking at that technique today on utube, It seem quick and easy. I think I saw the kit for $40.

    I bought my harbor freight bench grinder and the paper wheel kit over ten years ago. I use it monthly and its still going strong.

    A paper wheel/sanding belt takes some serious time to learn and lots of skill to work correctly. Amazing to see makers put the first edge on a knife.

    Spyderco Sharpmaker. I can’t recommend it enough. I have sharpened many different knives on it (people at work bring me their knives to sharpen) and always been able to get a great edge. I suck with flat stones, but this thing makes it a breeze.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    I have the same one. Super nice little knife. My only issue I have had is that it’s a little abrasive on my hand when I pass by it to get something out of my pocket.
    It was some ridges on it on the back strap that gets me a bit.
    Super sharp, love the size...I just can’t go jammin my hands in my pocket too quick.

    Yea, I noticed right of the bat the girth of it compared to my Leek. Also the clip seems a little long even though it’s a deep carry clip. I think I’m going to call Benchmade and see if they have a shorter titanium deep carry clip they can send me.

    Edit: I called Benchmade and there sending me a shorter titanium clip to replace the black clip.

    back to bone stock.
    I tried the Lansky. Had to watch YouTube for a few tricks and tips.

    My Ace Biblio was impossible with any stone I own. That Lansky with diamonds got it done. My coworker won’t open my knife. He’s a bit clumsy and he felt the edge. It’s profoundly sharp.

    I hope to get even more proficient with it. I’ll save it for the super steels.
