    At the risk of being pedantic, geeky and shining a megawatt spotlight on my own personal freak flag....

    The only part I found a bit disquieting was the segment from 0:09-0:29 and the whole Maple/Canadian conspiracy theory.

    The distribution of maples in the world:

    Any automatic association of maples and Canada is purely the result of the Canadian tourism board and possibly an unhealthy obsession with waffles/pancakes.

    The leaf on the box and black sleeve seems to be the Chinese maple which has thinner lobes than its Canadian cousin.

    At some point, we just need to stop.....

    The "Zebra High Heel" bottle opener

    The phone case bottle opener

    The "Prescription beer" bottle opener (notice the verbiage on the "bottles")

    [​IMG]

    The "Shoot your bottle caps like a Jet Disk" bottle opener (if you are old enough to remember what a Jet Disk is)

    The "Comb your hair for the mugshot" bottle opener

    The "Walking Dead Marathon" bottle opener
    [​IMG]

    The "Let's Get Ready To Rumble" bottle opener
    [​IMG]

    OK... in my heart of hearts... if I was honest with myself, I kind of covet the "Galactus: Destroyer of Worlds" bottle opener. Somewhere, the 12 year old always lurks inside us. :oops:

    I want the one that flings them! I have a friend that can snap them so hard they will stick in the wall. He is accurate too! The different types of dedicated bottle openers doesn't bother me. Building one in to every little multi purpose tool gets on my nerves every once in a while. But who am I to talk? My favorite knife is also my favorite opener

    You forgot Canadian bacon, and yes, I may have a problem.

    Apparently only some of them have that stuff. I didn't know that till after I made the vid. I guess it is sort of a lottery at this point.

    Actually I still have all that stuff. The next 50 of them will have all that stuff. It is the last 20 that will not have it. :)

    There's the Boker Plus MA-2. I got mine for around $25 on the 'bay with the stock sheath. This sheath in the pic is a custom I picked up for it. Much easier to deploy than the stock one. No bottle opener though whuch is a bummer.

    If you like the Corona like me than the bottle opener comes in really handy. I had a few weird stares when I reach up under my shirt and pulled out my WRK from the neck sheath and proceeded to pop the cap off my bottle. Of course, the setting was that of a camping nature. However I'm a bit hesitant to do that in public during some of our work related "mixers".

    What I would like to ask is, does anyone know what angle the chisel grind is on the WRK? I can't seem to find that info anywhere. I was trying to use my lansky and I tried really hared to find the angle with the stones but it seems like it's less than 30 but greater than 20, however 25 didn't look like it would work either. I might be way off here though.

    Any help out there?

    Cheers,
    FACE

    Does that mean your original sheath is too tight for your liking? I had one of those briefly, but my sheath was so loose that I knew carrying it would be an accident waiting to happen.

    How about the CRKT Neckolas? At least the sheath is kinda unique...

    It looks about 22ยบ to me. I'm not 100% sure and don't have the tool to measure it accurately.

    Try calling or emailing Matt or his dad at White River. They are pretty helpful.

    You may not need to sharpen it, but only hone. Try using a kitchen knife steel and push the knife along as if you are attempting to peel a thin slice from the rod. Do this about 5 times and it should be razor sharp again.

    I will try that. I actually was just using my very fine stones on the edge just to touch it up, but I still haven't been able to find a nice compound to use on a strop. Would like to try and strop it, but if all I need to do is run it along a kitchen knife steel I will do that. I thought that you always should pull away as opposed to pushing it? Nice thing about it though is the chisel grind.

    Cheers,

    Nope, you are basically just aligning the edge again by straightening the micro serrations.

    I love the chisel grind. You can almost cut translucent slices of pepperoni with it. They put a back bevel on for edge retention which is perfect for EDC.

    I really want a chisel ground chef's knife now.
