I know this knife quite well. We use and see a lot of them up on the ranch. The flat stones work fine for the recurve blade. My only complaint about this knife is the steel - I would love to see the same knife in S35V. I'll check with shipping and see if yours can go any sooner, if not, please send your knife and I'll put a great edge on it. Our address is:

3 Caliente Road, Ste 8
Santa Fe, NM 87508

Clay what is the general progress of orders? Are you on schedule for 6-8 weeks from order date, or behind? It sounds like you are a little ahead of the curve, based on member's responses on this thread.

Also, my ship date is Nov 11, but I leave for hunting Nov 11. Can I send you an interesting knife to try out, so I can bring it on my trip WE sharp?

The steel is so-so (AUS8), but the cutting under the skin for the banana shaped guthook is great. If you have good luck with the recurve part, let me know what you used. I assume you may use curved stones, but you may be able to sneak in the straight stones.

I would like to have the blade edge stropped out wicked edge sharp, but I am not sure what you can do with the WE on the recurve part of the blade. What address should I send it to?

Do you have an update on the fine diamonds and the ceramics?

The ceramics are in and I think (though I'm out of town right now) that the fine diamonds are in today or tomorrow.

Sweet! Can't wait to play with those diamonds, they'll lay down a base for the Shaptons that'll be showing up later this week. :D

Awesome! I'm loving the Shaptons, bet you'll get a ton out of them.

I'm certainly looking forward to it, I'll be sure to share my experiences with them here. I've had good luck with the Chosera stones, so I think I'm really going to get a kick out of their competition as well. :)

Yep, the 1200/1600 ceramics arrived today, I want to sharpen some knives tonight but the workbench has "other" work on it right now. Maybe I can get it clear by tomorrow. I just got a new BK2 that is crying for a better edge, as well as some beater pocketknives, and a few kitchen knives...
Sometimes I ain't that sharp.

Paste some pics of that BK2 when its done if you can. I've got mine queued up as well for when I get my WEPS. Along with my Busse Combat LE and others of course.

Sweet! Means mine will probably be heading out before too long as well. :)

Actually took the WEPS down to a favourite coffee-and-sandwich place the other day and sat at a table working on one of their knives (which was AMAZINGLY dull) It was such a bad one that a 18-dps setting took a couple minutes to actually raise a burr with the 100-grit plates! Lacking the fine stones as yet (before I got my shaptons as well) I ran it down through 600, then gave the edge a few licks on my Sharpmaker's fine rods as a finishing step at 20-dps. They were amazed at the knife, and the WEPS drew a lot of interest!
