    Haha. Kid you not!! Was just doing this exact thing last night on my esee 6. Definitely keeps an edge near perfect. Only downside I found was if your wanting to change the degrees it seems to take forever with the 320 stone. Other than that, I absolutely love the sharpener.

    For sure... You can always use another stone to knock it down first I suppose... I heard they will offer more grits in the future.. I'm cool with using my own handheld strop though.

    I thought it worked great.... It's compact and you can't beat the price... I brought back like 6 knives from the dead in a 1/4 of the time it would have took me on my bench stones. I suppose a fancier sharpener will give you that perfect shine and "perfect" angle... but this little kit is awesome for a great working edge.

    I was told this was a small book, not that it weighed 10 lbs.. Lol. Anyway, I know for a fact I would never survive in a shtf situation, but I figured it would be a good read anyway. Also went in half with good ol Harold and got the advanced kit. Knifeworks has it for $416 so not too bad. I really just wanted the knife and a few of the goodies. 20210722_193304.jpg 20210721_105110.jpg

    That's what I've heard, that it's one of the best. Just wondering what took me so long in getting it..

    Got the skinny pouch last week for my ghost hunting kit but it's not wide enough. So ordered two from maxpedition since they were bogof and only place I could find the fatty in grey. It would've been a good deal if their shipping wasn't so high and then they charge some fee for safe shipping? It's only 98¢ but still an extra unknown charge, until after you order. Unless I missed something. Anyway, it's maxpedition and excellent pouches so why not. Had to get the piranha patch to match my 3. I'm weird like that. Also a Wuben C3 and one helluva flashlight. Up to 1200 Lumens on an 18650 rechargeable battery. USB type C charging as well. 20210802_123505.jpg

    Local place (as in 300m in a straight line from my front door) had a sale and I grabbed a couple of extra headlamps....

    Definitely a good read, the book that got me into outdoors stuff when I was a kid, it was probably the only one translated in Bulgarian back then, covering such topics.

    More MTB stuff, so I can ride again, once this ungodly heat is over. I have parts to rebuild the whole drivetrain now, even make it a bit better and lighter.

    So I ordered a WWII m1 bayonet. This will probably sound stupid or dumb but I wanted one because of my grandfather who served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. I never knew him but I know he was a hero and he received a lot of medals during his service, including the purple heart. I was his first born, and only grandson so thinking he probably would've handed something like this down to me. I don't know if that would be considered selfish, but I don't mean it to. It's hard to explain. Anyway, I should've done more research on them because the one I received, although real and from that time Era, was made by the US for the Greek military. I wanted one carried by the US. Luckily the guy accepts returns. It's really cool nonetheless. 20210809_121342.jpg 20210809_121357.jpg

    I thought it was about time for a new strop. The old one, on the left, I've had about 4 years. It's served me well but the leather is really bumpy now. Also picked up an 18V cordless Skil still with bag and a light for 25.
