    I use a "Edgemaker Pro" . Lo cost, simple ,two sets of rods & works great on all of my knives. Sometimes I use a "EZE Lap" diamond stone .Also works well ,but you have to watch the angle. I finish with a small ceramic rod. All pretty small money & with some practice you can put a good edge on your knives. Works well on my Cryo ,by the way.

    All the Best,

    i have the same sharpener!! mine is from the first or second year they came out. it is in a nylon sheath..not the plastic case it comes in now.

    mind me asking, what FOUR sets of sticks you have? i have the brown coarse, and the white finer WHITE sticks..what else do you have? finer than what i have?

    i have gotten to where i put a square of paper towel in the hole and then jab the stick in. holds it firmly. i seem to get a better edge that way. i think my holes have enlarged all this time.

    oh, in my hunting pack i carry an ACCUSHARP. i find it is the best way to get a good edge back on a knife with bloody hands. i would break my sharpmaker, plus it is too heavy.

    Kershaw Cryo 2 blackwash. Got it on Amazon for $33. Not too bad of a deal. Is surprisingly sharp right out of the box.

    Talking with protech about my new TR-3. The blade has developed hairline fractures after a week of ownership. Hell, I've only cut the tape off of a box with it so far.

    Protech answered their phone, and after I described the issue they asked for pictures of the blade. This is what I sent them.

    They stated that they had not had a blade fail in this manner before. I will let you know what happens next.

    That's all I'm asking for. A simple exchange will be fine by me. Here's the part that has me a little worried though.

    This is from Protech's warranty page.

    The knife is legal in Texas, as far as I can tell, so I'm hoping this won't be an issue as I'm neither military or law enforcement.

    I ordered the knife from BladeHQ, not directly from Protech.

    Yeah, did that. BladeHQ won't accept it back for exchange due to the fact that I put the knife in my pocket.
