Sliverax today. My favorite fidget toy so far.
Sage 5 Sage 3 out in the rain with me. Love the lock on this knife. imo nicer to use than ball bearing or axis locks. Does make the knife a little fat in the pocket.
I've been using it a ton on drywall lately for most of the drywall cutting tasks. A razor knife dulls quickly and almost feels like I'm trying to push a credit card through the drywall, but not this alien stuff they call Maxamet.
At the end of the day I've definitely dulled the Maxamet, but not enough to slow me down on the job. By dulled I don't mean the blade is dull, I mean it's not as stupid sharp as it was at the beginning of the day.
Just a coulple of minutes at the most on a pocket DMT Xfine/XXfine diamond stone and it's back to far better than factory edge sharp.
I believe this knife could last me the rest of my life even if I cut drywall with it every day. CPM M4 was my favorite steel for many years but this Maxamet takes and holds a scary sharp edge for a looooong time.
Really great stuff.
Shhhhhh... I don’t need anymore knives right now...
Put a 100 Pacer in my pocket today.
I purged the vast majority of my collection.
It didn't cross my mind once to sell this one.
Does that help? (muahahahahaha)
This 100% makes sense and is 100% something I never would have considered doing. I keep using my crappy steel for stuff like drywall and am always frustrated at how fast it dulls. Of course using the best steel you can get makes sense when you're cutting material that dulls it quickly. Need to rethink some of my knife usage.
I'm not employed in the trades and do no need to use any of the very expensive knives w/premium blade steel that I own for the few household chores and projects that arise. So, I'll continue to just using box cutters and utility knives w/cheap replaceable blades for those tasks. I do have a couple of premium blade steel "users" that I've acquired that I could use as well but I'd still reach for the box cutters/utility knives 1st.
However, in your situation, I'd use the best knife that you can afford for the job. If that's Maxamet or some other premium steel blade, then use it. Heck, it may even be tax deductible if it's required for use in your occupation.
You can save some money by buying a "user" off of the Exchange and then just trashing the heck out of it w/little or no concern what happens to it. If you really like the knife for it's aesthetics, then buy another to coddle.
Out on the surf this morning and I thought I hooked a ball of seaweed. Nope someones backpack. My $$ lure was hooked real good. Atlantic Salt to the rescue.
S90V and smooth G-10 work well for me.
Pocketed the PITS (Pie In The Sky) today.
Not as sexy as other knives I've recently carried but one of (if not) the nicest "legal" slip-joints that you could carry.
Atlantic soon to be in the water.
V-TOKU2 Stretch when I change into dry clothes.
