drobs I just stashed one of mine out in the garage. Handy for when you need something sharp.

Al Diehl I bought one of the Wahoo Killers from BudK. I completely re-done the uneven edge and got it sharpened up.

A couple of weeks later I shot a doe and purposely used the Wahoo to gut, skin and cut up the entire deer. I dressed the edge after gutting and skinning and, then again, after boneing and cutting up the meat.

The knife worked so well, I ordered more and gave them away for gifts.

I painted the scabbard on mine OD because I don't like that bright blue.

drobs Brought my Wahoo Killer with me to Africa. Figure if it gets confiscated or stolen it's no big loss. Should've brought 2 as I would've given one away by now.

I've just done it a few times. But really scrape that edge of yours hard at a high angle on your stropping block. It will need bending back and forth to break off the burr.

The topic of stones....do you like using those? I've got a few stones here and there but nothing like a 1500 grit or better water stone. I've looked at them now and then but I just couldn't pull the trigger on one. That's an edge far beyond anything I need.

Be well, sir!

I will take your advice and do that my friend.

Yes I do like using my stones to relax and get into good mood The sound of them all is music to my ears.

I have a puck, some alumminum oxide stones, a nice 1000 grit water stone and a few ceramic ones. As you said definitely don't need anything fancier than that. And for wood carving I like to finish my knives on a cardboard box or glass mug. I haven't been stropping since my granddaddy showed me how he does it with an old belt and toothpaste or baking powder

panoz77 These are cheap enough that you can experiment and make mistakes and no harm no foul. Bottom line is, they are a heck of a deal for $2-3 each when you can get the free shipping deal.

go I sharpened my Wahoo's with a crock stick sharpener and they were beginning to shave hair.

They are decent vegetable slicers. Did a great job on tomatoes.

However, when I tried to do some carving or wood shaving with them they would just seem completely dull.

On the other hand my completely dull Mora's that I haven't sharpened in a while and wouldn't shave any hair are still doing a 100x better job carving or shaving wood.

I can't figure why but I guess that is the huge advantage of Scandi grind over the Wahoo grind? A sharp Mora will carve wood like butter but a sharp Wahoo would not?

Well yes, they do make high carbon stainless steel, but that term is relative. It has a higher carbon content than other grades of stainless steel but you do sacrifice some of the "stainless" properties of the stainless steel (i.e. it may oxidize easier) but gain other beneficial properties of the higher carbon content.

This company uses absolutely the best of the best steels:
-9Cr17 high carbon stainless steel

Your joking right?
http://www.steelstrip.co.uk/stainles...omparisons.htm

Notice where 9Cr17 comes from.

Now 440C is a much better high carbon stainless steel and used in "QUALITY" knives, not chinamart 9Cr17
