Good knives are not.

That's pretty affordable. And for the kind of use the previous owner got out of it, it was probably worth it!

PS... Kershaw knives? China?

Eh, they hold a good edge.

I like my Chris Reeve the most though. He CNC's them and then hand-file fits, and then hand sharpens them. He started his business in South Africa, in his garage, and then immigrated here to Boise with his wife. I think his cheapest knife runs $190, most expensive is over $700. He has a lifetime guarantee and will sharpen them for free if you pay the shipping in one direction.

Here's mine, the "Professional Soldier".



Anyways, next is a Schmitti blade, once I have some cash.

Did you forget that this was a thread about a Kershaw Leet found on the ground?

Self centered much?

You've been on here a month. If you were a bit older, you would know that it is standard operating procedure for threads to get off topic.

You also don't need to be a jerk about it, buddy. I'm allowed to talk about stuff, hence the whole point of a forum.



Erik, any potential for a picture of the poor ol' blade?

Just stop, the bunch of you. Take it to PM.

I too would like to see a picture of the knife before you work on it.

I can't imagine what they'd have to do to destroy a leek, heck I've cut serpentine belts, the beads out of car tires, countless boxes and ropes, packaging, whittled wood for kindling, cut the grout out from around a tile I had to replace, and even hammer it into a stud to hang a bumper cover off of while I was painting it and I've never had to do more than a 2 pass touch up on a fine stone or a single pass through a carbide
sharpener.
