Hi Druss,
Not sure how long delivery takes, but you can check by signing in on blades-uk and it will tell you if its been dispatched yet.

All my orders usually came within a week or 2 ;)

All the best

Re: spyderco

you need to check out the new lines, I much prefer the Benchmades, which now use 154cm, S30V, Damascus etc. I do like the spydies but i prefer benchmade, although i got quite a few spydercos in my collection, the new grips are all 154cm and the ritters are S30, the axis lock is just the dogs. yeah m...

Re: spyderco

Thanks Moon :oops: Gotta give credit where it's due mate. ;) Now that you've mentioned the 'Byrd' skip'...my eldest son picked up a 'Cara Cara' a few weeks back and that appears to be a lot of knife for the money to me...you can buy 2 of 'em for the price of that Spydie S and get enough change for ...

Re: spyderco

Thanks Moon :oops: I would say that the Spyderco "S" is a display knife and for the price aint worth it especially if you want to actually use the knife, If your on a budget I would say go for the Tenacious its a great knife, or if you want something else from spyderco go for Byrd, Sal owns Byrd as ...

Re: japanese water stones

depends what you mean by a burr, if your talking about the wire edge that you can get, a strop is perfect for removing it and with a good compound you can give the edge a mirror finish and take it upto hair popping sharp as well

What method are you using to sharpen the blade?

Re: John Barnett Irish Short Sword

A modern silicon-manganese compound spring steel. Once hardened and tempered correctly it is extremely strong and at the same time very flexible. It is these attributes that make it the ideal choice for a re-enactment sword blade. It holds an edge and can be polished to a mirror finish, but tarnish...

Re: got a tamahagane sword before ban

I found the exact sword he is saying he has, it aint true tamahagane as its from china not japan The Daimyo Tamahagane blades are made using high-carbon Tamahagane iron sand, the traditional ingredient of the true Japanese sword. This sets our swords apart, as it is very rare for blades to be made o...
