Very nice... what settings, finish, etc. did you use?

Mind if I add the pics directly into your post? (Or you can do it?)

Looks great!

Looks good! I have a few of the Leek's and one of Kens CRKT blades. I like his designs. Looks like Curtis does too!

Nice job - and looks like a great spot near the fire to sharpen - I'm jealous! Thanks for sharing the photos and settings

great looking edge........I have one of these as well and need to sharpen it, so thanks for posting the pics and your set up info.......saved me a few steps. :)

Can you elaborate a bit on your arm / rod setup ? Are those glove fingers your using for boots over the joints and what kind of washer or rubber grommet for paddle bumpers, and the little half moon things ( I'm assuming magnets ? ) sitting on top of the adjustment fixture ?

Darrell,

Thanks for the compliment.
The "covers" for the ball joints are fingers cut from a surgical glove. They were much less stiffer than the ones some use from dish washing gloves. The bumpers are rubber panel grommets, cant remember size, but they just fit the rods. I like them because the paddles can rebound off of them, thought about cutting them in half to reduce thickness. Those are magnets on top of the adjustment mounts. I also use electrical tape to hold a magnet on the front and backside of the riser base.

Dave
