Default Starting over from scratch-no more Chinese steel!

Went through all my knives. I’ve been using cheap Kershaws etc.

Some of these knives held up to the abuse I put them through, but for the most part, I had to box up seven or so knives-

I’m starting over with:

Vintage s&w california edition automatic

Boker tree of life top lock II - non auto

All that’s worth keeping-

I'll do you a favor and properly dispose of these knives at no cost to you.

I have a Thermite here that's a backup. I have to admit it is pretty bad, hahah. It is impossible to make a $25 knife that is strong as a tank, with decent steel, that operates smooth as silk, and has zero blade play.

I tend to lose knives. I also will give them to friends who don't have them. That makes the $25 Kershaws attractive to me.

I will take whatever ones you are getting rid of.

I just sharpened a bunch on the Worksharp... my buddy had an Kershaw RJ1 that was edge chipped in about five places... convexed that soft steel to remove all the chips really easily, no drama. It took as long just to touch up my 0909 in S35VN on the belts.

Chinese steel. Have a similar Kershaw, I did beat them with a stick. It left dents in the blade.

Benchmade only from now on for me.

No chicom scrap here!

Plus, don't support the fake az counterfeit market.



(I think I probably do have some foreign mfg stuff but not mystery steel)
