It is spring here and I carry the SC again, so I finally got a magnifier back on hand. Time to take some close-ups  :cheers:

I sowed some wildflower seeds in dirt patch in my back yard last year, and they’re really blooming this year. This is Indian Blanket.

It’s kinda Damascus blade, but from two weeks of using the knife I can tell that it doesn’t help in any practical way. Actually that’s the reason why my wife chose this knife, but surprisingly it was almost blunt brand new and the edge retention disappoints just as well

Made it razor sharp but not for long

Well
My ladies won’t tell me, but I guess they’ve been cutting something on their plates with this knife, because a few hours ago it was razor sharp and it hardly cuts a piece of pie now. When I asked my wife she was like “don’t know what you’re talking about”

lasted even less than I’d expect, so had to touch it up again - never ever in my life I had to sharpen a knife twice a day until now

This thread is awesome!

I feel like I should carry my Explorer around for a few days so I can participate too. It kind of makes me want a newer one with the larger magnifying glass...

Some people (outside of this forum) mock the mag lens, but I think it’s a valuable tool. How else would I confirm that I did just scratch my brand new watch crystal?

They're more valuable the older you get, but I'm sorry about your crystal  :facepalm:

If it's an acrylic crystal, you should be able to buff out the scratch with Polywatch.
