This might be a blog post -I'm not sure how this annex to the forum works, so bear with me or ignore me as appropriate
It's just an index post to walk report threads I've put up over the years. Blog posts are limited in image content (10 per post I think, cf 25 in an ordinary forum post) Hence just links to threads.
If links are limited too...there goes this idea! Time to press 'post' and find out. If it works I'll annotate the index a little.

No you haven't ruined it... knives can take much more abuse than this
What you need to do with the Lansky is reduce the number of variables in play so you get some easy consistency. Off the top of my head (since I use one a lot)...
Managed to forget about this ><
Managed to get my hands on a extrema ratio bf2 td dp finally!
