    Does it hurt the hones yall use for razors to use them on your knives? For those who use your razor hones on knives that is.

    Mine was bad. I havent sharpened it in probably 4 or 5 months, and I use knives quite a bit. The sharpeners I have just flat suck so today I used 1000 grit sandpaper followed off by a piece of leather with some CroOx on it just to see what would happen. I think I turned the Scandi grind into a convex grind, but it slices through paper really easily now and it put a new point on the blade that hasnt been on there since I bought the knife. Im just a little disappointed because it wore down alot of the TiNi finish on the blade, but I guess I can live with that. Im wondering how long the convex will hold up over Scandi. That will decide if I stay with this grind or put a Scandi grind back on it.

    I got one of those lansky sets. I use it for most of my knives that I don't really care about, cheap pocket knives and so. For my nicer knives I use real hones. I have planned to upgrade to the edge pro set, just haven't gotten around to it yet

    My Knives are just pocket knives,stuff I use to cut cardboard and stuff in the yard,A few swipes on a round diamond steel works for me.

    Norton combination oilstones, crystolon, Carborundums up to & including 1000 grit, finish on a beat up Swaty.
    There are a hundred different choices out there, a good Norton combo can cost $20.00 & last you forever with that one knife.
    I never run my EDC knife through a slotted tungsten carbide cutter; the thought alone gives me the shakes, should be a law against it, punishable by a beaten with a
    cat–o'–nine tails.

    They make the edge look like a saw!

    Pixel,
    That knife in the middle is a Buck Esquire, isn't it?

    I use the syperco sharpmaker. Good for quick touch-ups assuming you have a good starting grind. One of the easiest learning curves and fairly inexpensive.

    Downside: Really not suited to any heavy work like re-profiling.

    Not a clue,marked buck 501,actually I find those Carbide gizzies to work well,not for sharpening,but they set a perfect intial bevel to work on.

    Yes, it's a Squire, not Esquire, my bad. Good little knives.

    Yes they do, because they "shave" off the dang metal.
