I'm officially envious of that knife grinder. I recently watched that guys' promo videos demonstrating all the features. The "surface grinder" attachment looks pretty tasty.

I've been sketching plans for building my own double-wheel grinder.

Now that I have it, they've piled a ton of work on me, so no telling when I'll get to play with it.

Good wife!
The Kershaw RAM is a great EDC knife! I bought two and gave one to my youngest brother.

If I'm not mistaken, Kershaw discontinued these. A big mistake, as they are excellent.

Any suggestions for carrying a fixed blade daily and not looking like a goofball? I just can't sort a way to carry that CRKT.

The various "neck" knives would probably work.

Why would you want a fixed blade for EDC?

Scout style works for me. Not the best for sitting in a chair though. Shirt untucked or jacket & no one is the wiser.

Because they're better knives. I EDC a Bark River knife of some fashion all the time. At the (business casual) office I slip a Blackjack (made by BR) necker in that long skinny right leg pocket of my carpenters pants. Outside of work, a Mini Fox River or Northstar Companion on the belt is pretty unobtrusive, even with a tucked shirt. Untucked, a Gunny, Bravo 1, or even a Special Hunter or Gameskeeper 2 works.

Always accompanied by a SAK in my pocket, of course.

I attempted that way with the CRKT, but I think the Tek-Lok clip I got for it, it just stuck out slightly too far. I'll have to toy around with things a bit more. I'm thinking no matter what if I'm wearing a more fitted shirt, there's gonna be a knife bulge on my back.

Clip & Sheath setup:

I have an ESEE Izula coming in the mail. It is about time I've tried one; I've read good things.


I also got a CRKT Folts Minimalist recently. It's a great little handy knife.

Very cool looking knife. Is the blade damascus? Or just a coating of some sort?
