RF, how is edge holding up? 

You've been giving that blade a lot of use. Have you felt the need to retouch the edge?
For normal use it holds up well, but I have abused it when scraping stuff and cutting things I wouldn't use my nice knives for so I had to sharpen it twice so far to sort out a rolled edge here and there. It sharpens up very quick though :like:

That answers my question...twice...thats not bad then. I take it you have scraped gaskets off with it then?
Gaskets, and I had to scrape some foam from a steel beam to drill and tap some holes. And I cut some silicone glue stuff to make a hole larger and probably cut into some aluminium :facepalm: So it has seen some (ab)use :rofl:

Nice usage and how are the rubber bands holding up? :tu:
So far, so good. And they do provide more grip.

Day 24:

Starting of with a sunrise pic :like:

Cut some generator belts, broke down some cardboard from yesterday and unwrapped a new sunvisor/curtain.

Also had to use my MP800 to cut and file an aluminium rod/pole thingy and didn't want to chop and wittle it with my knife :rofl:

WHAT? :ahhh Cheese is one of those superfoods everyones talking about. You can eat as much as you like and every slice makes you healthier than the last one. That's what I heard in the cheesemongers anyway.
