My last post here was over two months ago, and it simply said "It's going to be a very busy day."
It turns out it's been an incredibly busy two months. It seems like everything has hit me at once, and I'm busy at work, with my family, and with my schooling.
So, in case you haven't already figured it out, I probably won't be posting for a while. That said, I have an idea for what I want to do with this site; it's just going to take me a while to find the time to do it...Published Nov 28 »
It's going to be a very busy day.
Ah, Mondays. When reality comes crashing back.
I really want to like the Sebenza 25. It has quite a few things going for it compared to previous knives in the Sebenza line (although I still miss the pivot bushing). However, I just can't get over how uncomfortable the finger grooves are on the handle scales. So, I decided to modify the scales.
Basically, I ground down the points on the finger grooves using the diamond and ceramic files from my Spyderco Sharpmaker, and then put a medium stone-wash on the handles. It took quite a bit of work to get them down to where they are. To be honest, it's pretty rough work, but, the stone-washing blends it all together fairly well.
The end result is that the handles are, for me at least, much more comfortable to hold. I also really like how it looks, especially with the stone-washing. I might actually give the handles an even heavier stone-washing. Of course, this no double completely voids the warranty, so proceed at your own risk!Published Sep 21 »
It's going to be an incredibly busy day, and I'm probably going to end up working late... on a Friday...
Working from home today.
It feels very cold outside this morning. Winter is coming.
I stayed up way too late last night trying to get some work done. Now I'm paying for it.
The year is just flying by.
Heading out to pick up and then install a new garage door opener. The old one was still the original from sometime in the 1960s when the garage was built, and it's about to die. Wallet, phone, and keys are in my coat.
