Thought for fun I'd say Hi and show the knife I received. A Chris Caine Signature Survival Tool.

Took it out of the box and tried er out by making some kindling. Does the job decently., while not a pocket knife it fits the hand and works great. Then it was time to tweak it, up to [url=
]10,000[/url] and last strop was the .125 micron spray on a balsa platen. Still needs more work but for a first time at the bench the edge is better [url=
]now.[/url]

I have had my Pro-Pack II for about a month or longer now, I think. Nothing with an edge has not met my Pro-Pack to be re-profiled and sharpened to the point were my wife said the kitchen knives are to sharp ?! go figure.

I did make a tree to hold my various stones, though. It sits under the [url=
]base[/url] so the weight of the stones does not drag it [url=
]over.[/url]

Welcome, Wow that 10,000 puts a nice shine on! Looks like your fully addicted to the We too? Really like your stone tree. I've got an idea for one? Now if it ever makes out of my head?

I like the tree! You might want to reorganize your stones with coarsest at the bottom, finest at the top to minimize cross contamination. My luck would be a 100 grit partical would land on my 1000 grit stone :)

Not really an issue if you clean them before use, I suppose but an easy thing to change.

Actually thats a great point KenBuzbee, the contamination thing was the reason for the tree. Stuff rattling around in the box. I clean after use, before use and during use 1 flake of steel and it ruins that pretty line. One issue with the tree though reaching over a sharp knife in the vise ........ Addicted to wildly wicked sharp !
