    Quote from Jimmypie: “Before you completely reprofile it Amir , have you used it yet ? Just bear in mind that with a small axe you won't get as much impact energy , so thinning the edge right down might result in sticking and wedging itself into logs and processing jobs where a heavier axe with the same geometry would just power through and split . ” This..

    @The Lord Flashheart My full & half size axes are ground & a touch of a stone if removing a burr from hitting a knot or similar. In my amateurish experiences of chopping green to seasoned is that fine edges on hard use chopping tool are pointless & soon will be...

    I use a grinder on all my wood axes...no effing about & no convex edges. They get pummelled !

  • I'd personally mark that " Fixed blade camping knife " & USPS is fine as long as it's not double edged with finger guards etc...these lovely people in HWDC are right on it ! edgematters.uk/attachment/3230…1cea0c8e9bb118bc6207baba6

  • That's the phrase I've been using to Import & export folding locking knives. The USA may accept "Cutlery" & others may use this. If you use "Cutlery " or "Camping tool" as description for Import into U.K. using USPS / RM , that tends to get you a seizure letter from the detection unit from personal experience. These are my experiences. Others may have been luckier than I

  • @Magizm7 If high value, use same Couriers. Description : Manual folding lock knife. An opinion only that either import to U.K. or export to USA, to describe something along the lines of a Kerambit or Benchmade Bedlam as a camping tool is the laughable side of far fetched..

  • @Arclightuk1972 Imho someone was being a jobsworth. They opened the package. Decided the description was a pee take. They made it awkward...simples.

  • Nice....very nice

  • I've been discussing ordering Lamb & charcoal with Amir this morning & numbers so I thought we'd better have a head count : So far. @XamaX (import from the North) DARJAC666 plus 2 & Collie ( Import from Essex) @akacoach ( Stoke) @The Lord Flashheart (London) @hughtrimble (London) @TrayTray (Kent) @keen-magpie (Berkshire) @Castillo ( East Dorset ) @packrat ( London ) So then....who is missing from the South West Meet ?

    Anyone got one please. Double edge itch to scratch... Cheers. Darren

  • @richp The sides are very ridged & noticeable to the touch but the cutting edge is conventional. The ridges make it a little more effort to keep clean but it's worth it for the unusual blade.

  • Gents Fixed blade knives of conventional configuration, (i.e. no finger holes or guards making it look like a knuckle knife or push dagger) will import ok using USPS / RM postal method. Folding locking knives of any configuration posted using the national post of the respective countries, USPS / RM have far greater potential to be seized by U.K. Border detection as "Gravity or flick knife" The detection team representing HMRC work within the RM sorting facility near Heathrow in Bucks. They have …

  • No issues personally with FEDEX ever.. As Ben says, we know those who have. Go figure !

I ask this question every time a gathering is mooted and every time the general response is remarkable in it's muted indifference... ” Indeed Amir. Unfortunately, its extremely difficult to gauge takeup such that any of us can plan food or outline any itinerary. I suggest we go lamb or pork on a BBQ scale. The veggies, including my 2 can eat their lettuce & lentil surprise as they choose..…

    @Jimmypie Absolutely Jim. All the big & small USA brand manufacturers alike went to or are still with Far East production base. Cost or pruduct range supply drives the needs & requirements. Nowt wrong with it or product from my experience of these knives & I have a couple or three. The Folsom sounds like a lot of knife for the money. . Please let us know the craik with it Cheers.

    CKF style operation but with industrial designers in-house. Not knife makers as such. Some assembly is Portland Or. Most major parts are not US manufactured. But in the main, very right handed thinking when so many knives & General hand tools have some compromise toward ambidextrous use. The more I look, the less I like.

  • @Platinum Hello Joel. Thanks. I've had one of them for quite some time & another came up from a very respectable member recently. Ones full Apocalyptic & the other has a mirror polish. They are a nice thing in that they are very light & have the weight removed most everywhere.

  • Ok. Enough of this. This forums been running 2 years & you Alex have been mostly inactive member for 20 months of it. You've joined on a base sub & started showing your work coincident with rule changes which was unfortunate. I'm not going to argue further semantics. However the changes in these & other areas are resulting from the plain fact that certain areas of the forum we thought would operate in a collegial & reciprocal manner have not done so. The Edge Matters team will make the decisions…

  • @The Elusive Dr.X All credit to you if you can listen to a whole review without developing Tinnitus. I agree that his disassembly "How to's" are valuable for many people.. Apart from his muppet show drawl, I find his constant rants about proprietary fasteners a little tiring. In context, many of those folders that have bespoke custom fasteners holding them together are Midtech to higher end custom folders. With rare exceptions, they won't get carried. Safe Queens spring to mind. The Grimsmo Nors…
