  1. i used a sharpening stone and leather strap with buffing compound for awhile, and it seems to work, but i do not know if this is a long term solution, and i also use my knife for cutting particularly hard to slice foods like onions and celery, and it works wonders thanks guys!
  2. I have a Mtech knife thats made with 440 Carbon steel and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on sharpening that type of steel to keep an extremely sharp edge for a long period of time
  3. What do you guys think of using the lost wax casting method to make the general blade for my first knife and I can just grind it down and polish it up? I found a company near me in PA that does lost wax and wanted to know what you think http://www.ppcpinc.com/lost_wax_casting.html Also how is damascus design done on blades? it looks awesome!
  4. I don't know if you still want some help for sharpening the bits, but after you grind them down, try using a buffing compound on a scrap of rough leather and it might help sharpen them a bit, It worked on my brace and bit and many of the knives i sharpen
