this one of the link i able to find about spyderco grit rating



some how i think a 'work knife' should be around the range of 1000 but then some said it remove too much metal?
the steel materiel play a big part too, the finest the edge it will more prone to chip or even roll.
and the toothy vs polished debate will start again.
sharpening is so much more to research then buying knifes.
maybe really got to spend the money and buy all the stones and try out.
I think ur Grit table is off. How can the grits get lesser as the rods get finer?

Special deals just for today , pm to enquire.

Back to regular programming. Re: grits, you'll find your own sweet spot on what you like. If you use your knives a lot, you'll have to touch up a lot and you'll have your own first hand experience as to preferred edge that is optimum for your use. spend more time cutting and less time worrying about the grit

have fun whilst you're at it.

I have the spydie sharpmaker but I haven't used it in a year or so as I mostly do handsharpening on benchstones now. For quick touch ups, I'll just use a ceramic stick. Yes, I also cheat a little with a leather strop

to start the fun we need to get the sharpening tool and 'good' sharpening tools cost quite a bit of money that why the grit discussion come in.

i see even famous knife maker mention Silicon Carbide stone(can get less than sg$10 locally) is good enough for the sharpening to do a good cutting job so is it worth for us to invest in the expensive sharpening tools?
is the knife enthusiast/hobbyist overkill with the sharpening requirement? simply go for the sharpest, finest, shinning edge to split a hair? focus more to the sharpening skill for the razor sharp edge to satisfy our pleasure than the real life performance needed?

Special Note: as with all Umnumzaan the lock-up appears late, but actual lock-up contact is around 50% at ceramic ball side.

I got a V10R Ti too. Too flashy polish to use around. If you guys happen to go Hong Kong holiday, dropby Sam Sui Po, those hardware shops/flashlight shops selling cheap... Really love it.

Got pics of your Mcgizmo haiku? Seems interesting.

My already EDC 5 years old Nitecore EX10 proves reliable. drop, throw, scratches... the electronics still going strong despite once a while unusual function. Just spray with contact spray, clean up and back to tip top.

I don't really collect, but I do own a Sunwayman V10R Ti+, also modified to take 18500 batts with a milled down McGizmos Haiku style body tube. 500lumens of shining goodness.

I like Murray's videos. I learn a lot from him and he is a good maker. Too bad his prices have doubled since he returned from Japan.

Haha. Where got money for McGizmo. It's only the body tube of my V10R Ti that is modified to look like the signature grooves on the haiku. Otherwise, my SWM is just a simple $200 flashlight. The mod job cost me about US$250 plus shipping. Not complaining since now I can use it with 18500 batts. And oh, the entire piece was stonewashed with a cross hatched finish. Really nice and not very easy to muck up.

Love the EX10 and D10. Wanted to get a Ti version just for modifications. The body tubes and switches by Steve Ku for the D10 is very nice too!

Try the zt0801. Sojourn88 has them in stock. They r quite hard to find and imo,the best value for money production knives in the 200+ dollar range.
