Minimal SAK challenge thread!
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:21:12 PM »
Well, here's day one of the minimal SAK challenge. I love these 58mm knives for a companion to a dedicated folding knife. The thin blades slice through this thin cardboard like a laser. I guess this also counts for the stayglow badge as well. (This is my first attempt at badges, do I need a dedicated thread for each badge?)

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! Here's day two! My newest alox and first cadet. I love how thin it is to carry. It definitely punches above its weight class!

Day three! I snapped this photo to show off my favorite SAK, and one of my favorite locations in my hometown. The SAK, as I'm sure you all know, is the wonderful compact. It is, for me, the total package for a day to day use knife. It's got all the essentials without too much extra stuff that just weighs me down when I don't really need it. The backdrop is the floral clock at the Capitol building here in Frankfort, KY.

Lol, what's wrong with requesting multiple badges in one thread? That's how I got most of my badges a couple years ago! Did you guys outlaw it after I did it or something?  :P

This is still a factory edge that has been stropped on black and then green compound. Stropping is really incredible. As long as the edge isn't physically damaged it will make it scary sharp. I touch up my knives with the strop and basically never need to actually sharpen them unless I mean careless with the edge. Thanks!

Sure some have done that.
We would like to see people putting in some effort when requesting a badge.
Doing so in the appropriate sub forums also contributes to the site by generating content and conversation there.
At the end of the day there is no set rule on this and we are pretty accommodating.
Keep in mind the more you put in the more you'll get out.

Perchance is there a layman's translation of that? It's foreign to me and I'd REALLY like to learn how to sharpen correctly.
Thanks for the information!

Sure thing! The knife hasn't actually been "sharpened" since it left the factory. I have a piece of leather with two different  types of polishing compound. You use the compound to refine the edge and polish it. My best advice is to search YouTube for "knife stropping".

Today I removed the tag from my new Mickey Mouse flip flops. Definitely hard use.
