After a clean, flatten, sharpen its shaving paper thin. I love using sharp hand tools, they’re a pleasure.

I’d love to complete the set, I’ve got 4, 4 1/2, 5, 6 and a 7 in various states of restoration.

Love those, looks in real good nik too. I struggle sharpen them correctly.

Reminds me to clean up mine as well and get them in working order again.
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Hey ChAoZ
That hardtail looks good. Is it a top loader?
and if so where did you get it?

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

I did it with the eyecrometer. Turns out it's 33 degrees so yes. Happy New Year Ross. :D

Happy new year to you too. I recognised the symmetry immediately, nice deployment of the eyecrometer, I assume you used the knockometer also?

Always do. The tightness of the fit is directly related to the mass of the knockometer.
