This is me right now:


:huh:

The USPS tracking system seems to be a little bit disappointing compared to UPS or DHL or FedEx...

Hope it gets there soon! Can't wait to hear your results. A couple things to remember:
  • Start with some cheap knives to let your stones break in and to build your technique
  • Ask lots of questions - there are loads of really knowledgeable and friendly people here
  • Have fun!
  • Check out all the great info here on the Wiki Beginners Guide (thanks Mark and Curtis!)

Yeah I hope so too... I'm really itching to get started!

I've already scoured the house for old crappy knives to start with, before going in to the nicer ones (also just got a nice looking s90v folder from Germany today).

While waiting, I think I've browsed through the whole wiki and read almost all threads in this forum. There is a lot of good information here! And (of course) I've watched a lot of YouTube as well... :P

I'm so good at USPS tracking, I usually know when it's in their distribution center, and just go get it myself. B)

    Going and picking it up is always a good idea, but it seems a bit far to me... It has been saying "Processed through sort facility" in Los Angeles (for the last 4 days) and I'm in Sweden! ;-)

    So.... What did you get? Pictures? S90V can be a really great steel.

    I got a Reinhard Müller MSP Linerlock, haven't had time to try it out very much yet but it seems nice (maybe a little low HRC according to spec sheet but a solid knife anyway).

    Yes, it says around 58 HRC.

    Even though the website seems to be German only, he answers e-mails in English without problem.
