Is leatherman C33x good or k501?
If I have to pic out of these 2 choices, I will take K501. It's look beefier, and easier to close the blade.

It's made from 154 CM. More Ergonomic Handle.

Anyway, I cannot tell you what is better, it's up to you to decide what is best for yourself. But pretty well round choices for your first EDC

Anyone knows where to get cutting and honing stones beside razorsharp? Need to re-profile my dx subcom replica after so much cutting and the sharpmaker isn't any good at that

sharpmaker is too slow.. plus I want to reprofile the blade angle a little bit to test. The fake subcom DX knife is stamp aus8 but I doubt it is.. it doesn't hold the edge long (run it through 2-3 cardboard and it's gone liao) but then it's also harder (than aus8) to sharpen.. so I want to reprofile it a little to use it for utility.. now the profile is too thin..

Yup.. can be bought at Sheares or online.. tanto is the blade style, but is an adapted style from Japanese tanto and NOT a Japanese tanto.. the blade material 154cm is from Crucible, a US Company. You can read more about benchmade's blade info here
Yes, but this blade is a reverse tanto blade version. Tanto, if I'm correct means short sword in nihon-go.

I have tested my Recon-1 slicing power against 950 Rift. The Verdict?

950 Rift is able to slice paper thinly due to it's blade thickness. Recon-1 is unable to do so due to it's steeper edge and thicker blade.



I would classify Recon-1 as a blade that do raw cutting. Cutting bigger and thicker stuff shouldn't be a problem with this blade.

950 Rift is a finer blade and can slice as thinly as you want. It's an EDC keepers.
thank you for the replies, i keep forgetting to check back at this thread. Yup, saving money now, but dunno whether worth buying it or not, cos there's not much use for it, to be honest

edit: if i want to get this model:

Benchmade 950 Rift, Black and Charcoal G10 Scales, BK Coated, Combo Edge
http://www.knifeworks.com/benchmade9...comboedge.aspx

would it be cheaper to get it online or from Sheares??

Hello Everyone,

I have disappeared to seek the mystical arts of sharpening my own Rift 950... I couldn't say my knife is as sharp as before, but slicing papers is no problem. Though newspaper are abit hard to cut as Rift is abit thick at the primary bevel.

Ok.. there are also comestic scratches on the black paint work due to my first timer learning on how to sharpen knives. I have slightly reprofile the edge to 15 degrees, I think so the cutting edge is slimmer.

Any experienced pros can tell me where to get Japanese Water stones for sharpening?

Daimaru? Takshimaya?

From the picture provided, I can say "Yes, it should be able to pass custom".

Reasons: single sharpened edge. Manual opening of the blade, with liner lock.

Perhaps, you may wish to tell us the name and model of the knife?

Bro,

Mine was the last piece from Sheares. Perhaps, you would like to get them to order for you. Stock should come in within a week.
