When you realize that everyone else is always the problem, it is most certainly you that is the problem. A truly wise proverb.

"Carbon steel NEVER has greater edge-holding than even the cheapest stainless steel"


"Which is still true considering 420J"

No,it isn't.
Or maybe you didn't mean NEVER.

Wow, great quotes. I did not realize that carbon steel is so bad. I will have to go to fine japanese restaurants and tell them that Gaston said carbon steel knives are banned. They can give them to me.

There's the one where you(Gaston)claim that black leather sheaths are 50X more water resistant than brown leather sheaths.
Do you have "data" or is that just speculation?

The insanity continues. Doesn't everyone know that black leather is more water resistant than brown leather? lol.

"On a fixed blade, not only do you have to deal with a dangerous shortcut that is completely invisible, a lack of proper temper, so a very tempting shortcut to make, but the complexity of a fixed blade is way greater when you factor in the quality of the sheath and how that sheath inter-acts with the knife: A fixed blade is actually*two items."

try gator hide, they fairly well waterproof, just getting it away from the gator is the lil issue.....
on proflies, i always follow the old "dont fix it if it aint broke" frame of mind. only had a couple over the yars i had to work, a Tracker, that was just to shallow and narrow, and of all things a Helle that had a nasty grind on it, had a ****in contest with Helle about it, I was told us american's expect to much perfection on a hand ground edge, I came back with no, us american's just expect it to cut and not tear when we're skinning game........

course i am bias'd I love D2 and have no issue whatsoever with a chisel grind. easy to touch up out in the weeds///////

two blades i forgot, Grayman Mega groundpounder (chisel grind in 1095 or double bevel limited edition) and the Grayman SATU in CPM20CV,
SAWBACK on the mega cuts well.(its long enough) and if you break either one, quit trying to cut a anvil in half.............

For carbon steel blades in kitchens, yes, that is official EU and Australian policy, with an article number in each case. It is likely similar in many other places...

The ban on leather sheaths is for Army paratroopers: Leroy Thompson mentions (in Tactical Knives) hearing of it first hand from an Army jumpmaster, then phoning the Army for the rule's regulation number, with no luck. He went on to assume it is an unofficial policy. You can email him: It's true.

As for brown vs black leather, there are various degrees of treatment, but I can only assume you never saw either one wet... It sort of reminds me, when I mentioned I needed to conceal a large knife because I didn't use a car to get to the woods, someone asked: "How do you get to the woods then?"...

Yeah, those sheaths stay dry alright... Now I get all the excitement over uncoated Carbon Steels...

You have a very good imagination.

You are dismissed.

"For carbon steel blades in kitchens, yes, that is official EU and Australian policy,"

So it isn't ALL like you claimed it was.
Gotcha.

"He went on to assume it is an unofficial policy"

What the hell is an unofficial policy?
Sounds like more BS to me.


"As for brown vs black leather, there are various degrees of treatment, but I can only assume you never saw either one wet"

Don't assume...you do far too much of that already

I bet you don't remember this...
This quote is outright incorrect. Your*comment about the US Military FORBIDDING the use of leather seemed strange to me, so I checked with our logistics folks here at the SOC. There is NO regulation, guidance or letter stating that leather sheaths, holsters or pouches are forbidden...across any service of the US military.The*reason you seldom find leather*issued*or*used is that it is easier to care for*and*cheaper to purchase thermoplasticsheaths/holsters. Nothing todo with safety.In*fact, many of the guys I work with still carry belt knives in leather*sheaths, usually knives they have personally purchased. The Pilot's Knife is still issued in a leather sheath (though most prefer a folder or multi-tool over a fixed blade).

This is hilarious...

"what*I*said was not entirely false either.*
I*justmisremembered it*too broadly.
The information was from someone in the service and makes sense.
How recent that is and where the rule is written I don't know,"

Classic Gaston!

We remember...peddling a bicycle with a big knife shoved down your pants,inside 2 tube socks for greater comfort.

The closest I've had to a poor man's Busse was an RD6 and RD9 when Justin Gingrich made them out of the old Busse blanks.
They were fine knives,but just too much knife for what I needed.
