Hmm. Looks a lot like my Victronox officer's model (That I've been carrying for 20 years or so).

I STILL want the Pally Special!

You should have it indeed!

I forgot all the particulars on the blade, but damn it is a fine hunk of metal - sharpens up so well after being abused...

It's here

Thanks honey

Just came in the mail today. It's beautiful and has already accomplished it's first task, dig a sliver out of my thumb, Passmore is right, blade is fantastic and the workmanship is awesome.

Here are some shitty pictures I took at work this AM, just as the battery on my camera died







And finally...



The color is off a tad, but I lightened it up a bit to make it easier to see the grain of the ironwood.

Very nice Phil!

Looks like some subtle nuances are evolving in the knife (or spec'd by you?).

I see the handle has become a bit more rounded and it looks like the blade as some more accentuated angles. Looks like I see a different angle between the wood and the metal as wel.

Very nice

Yes it did evolve a bit since I made yours, Michael. Essentially, everyone gets their own knife, and not just a carbon copy of the previous knife. Its good to know that the knife you get is one of a kind, yet the overall pattern is the same. There are a couple more Passmores on my build list for Advrider members, and I hope they will post theirs here too!

Phil, glad you like it, buddy!

Speaking of angles, what is the right angle for sharpening this sucker? I normally use my Lansky setup to clean knives up and set the angle?

Should I even use my Lansky on this blade?

Phil,

Pally may disagree, but me being the simple man that I am I just rake the thing over a my big 'ol 3 stone chef's stone's - no angle 'cept the one that feels like the blade is moving along nicely. Sharpens to a razors edge

I ordered this Gatco sharpening system and it was OK with all the angles and such, but a too cumbersome for me...

Oil and stone for this guy...

I used a Gatco - basically a Lansky to sharpen yours, so I'd give me blessing to your Lansky! Your bevel is set to 22 degrees. Its a good working bevel. Anything more wears too fast. I still got a bare patch on my left arm from yours, so go ahead and shave with it if you want!

I've been using the Lansky for 10 years, basically just an oil and 3 stone process, but it keeps a perfect angle on my carving and chef's knives. I bought the V stone to try to clean up one of my Spyderco's, it sucked.




I wonder what the knife maker has to say?

Michael, there is nothing wrong with your method. In fact, many old-timers like my Dad prefer that way. These were the guys that always carried a small sstone in their pockets to touch up their scythes while out in the field, or sharpen up the axe just a bit while taking a smoke break. The way you are sharpening will eventually make what is called a "cannelled" edge, or convex. It's actually a solid edge preferred by the guys who are into the cutting competitions and stuff. Then again these guys have been known to slice off their own fingers while practicing. So basically, if that style of edge is good enough to sever fingers cleanly, it'll certainly perform any cutting task you ask of it!

Your knives are very sweet. I would have your web site address on the bottom of all your thread, ie signature. Free advertising never hurts. I saw your web site address on one or 2 of your replies, so i could do some checking out. Beside good workmanship, advertising is one of the keys to success.

my 2 cents
saffer

ps the South African paramilitary force would have been the Recces. They are/were known as one very top paramilitary forces in the world and had a busy time with all the African war that go on.

That Lansky may have the "edge" as it has that nifty base - the Gatco did nto come with one. Looks lik eit would be far easier to use with that.
