Re: Swinguard storage

I've only broken 1 spring out of over a hundred knives, all stored closed. That was on a Rizzy and we know how crappy they were built.

Re: please help

The Case hunter looks to be 1965-1969. Not a heavy hitter but there would be a buyer out there. Hell; pm me and I'll bite. Sentiment might be a factor for not selling.

Decent knife; you can beat that price with a bit of careful shopping.

Re: Switchblade vs Folding Knife

Have 2 old Severtechs, both tanto. They are beasts but not bushcraft knives. I prefer using an ESEE Laser strike. Just can't see a reason to beat a Severtech just to prove a point; they sell too dear for that.

Re: Could someone explain the lack of enthusiasm?

I have Italians for the beauty and American for the usefulness. I also find both beauty and usefulness in American made such as Protech Brends. For me it's the Italians that hooked me on autos as a kid.

Re: Is there a way to improve the kickspring?

Sometimes with a weak kicker; the way you hold it while opening can help. Try different grips or positions of holding. Just a thought.

Re: Belt sander recommendations

Wow; I can see why Bill uses the 2x72. Those are nice, powerful, and obviously useful for folks who are true craftsmen. For my casual, minor uses I expect the 1x30 will fill the need. Thanks guys.

Re: Belt sander recommendations

Thanks John and Bill. I predict a purchase at Harbor Freight tomorrow when the coupons are best. The 1x30 should handle my casual needs well. Greg

Belt sander recommendations

I would like an inexpensive belt sander for some casual knife work. Something to work mostly on knives and do blade profile changes, blade slab sanding and general small shop work. What size has the most diversity of abrasives and general use. A leather belt would be nice too. Here is what I've seen...
