Mark,

Thank you for the link. I hadn't seen the new 5 mega pixel Dino-Lites yet. Hopefully they'll start making some at 500x with that high resolution!

Hi Martin,

Welcome on the forum! I'm sure you will enjoy your WEPS.

Where did you get your angle cube? I live in Holland and first tried to buy it from amazon.com. Then I found out it was export restricted. It is probably useful in making nuclear weapons as well :-).

That was actually a good thing, because that meant I had to look for one in Europe. I found a Dutch/German/Belgium webshop that sell various types of anglecube, but also microscopes, loupes, etc. And, just this time, we Europeans are off much cheaper than Americans :-). It's www.hogetex.com.

When I get to it, I'll post some more addresses in Europe for Wicked Edge paraphernalia.

Mark.

I am glad to hear Apple has an alternative to the angle cube...it should save some bucks for those who have one. Several things I need to know, does the phone have magnetic sides so it sticks to the paddles like the cube does? Does it have a hold button so when you move it, the reading is still there? Does it have a truing button so the reading is zeroed to the platform you are using? If all that is true then the guy who designed it must have been a genius and an avid sharpener!! LOL!

Hi Martin
We are glad you found the Wicked Edge Sharpener also...and so you found this Forum too. Your English is very good my friend so don't you worry about that.
Sounds like you have the kind of life many of us would love to lead. We will be happy to hear about your outdoor experiences and see some of the knives you have made and use. Sweden's climate is much like the climate of Northern Ontario where I grew up, maybe even tougher. I am looking forward to hearing about your winter and hunting stories.
You are very welcome here!

Best regards
Leo

Yes, it is totally unfair :angry:. I live in the Netherlands and I love survical. If we want to go survivalling, we have only small woods/lands we can go to. And you are only allowed to spend the night on camping grounds. And fire... no way.

So lucky you! And... a couple of guys here want to organize survival trips to Sweden, so maybe... :cheer:

Also interested in the knive(s) you use. Is it all Fallknivens and Moras?

sure i can show off some of my knives that i make and use and some outdoor photos if some want to see it, but i think i will start a new topic of that and not on this one.

some answers: i dont like fällkniven knives many do nice for them :) but they not for me.
Mora knives ihave been using my hole life but not now in forest but at work, they come sheep and scandi grind sharp.
the knife on the photo is one of my latest, a wide beast in 12c27 steel with rubber scales on it, i will send more photos of it, got a twin brother to him also but with home made micarta.

Living in sweden is great, lot of forest and you can go where ever you want almost anyway, fire and so on just show respect:cheer: we dont have so many dangery animals either, just one poisen snake and you would not die if you been bitten;) no sharks,crocks and so on...
realy hot sommers and realy cold winters with lots of snow, but that makes survival great, if you dont learn your dead....:P and we have many great knifemakers and so on...
see y martin
