Re: Picklock sharpening fails

Not the "bayonet" but the "standard" blade could be sharpened a little. Since the blade is very narrow, the blade losts very quick its original shape after resharpening.

Re: 3knives.com, my experience...

I sent the knife back and got the refund, so far the problem has been solved for me. What they make with those knife is up to them, but it was definitly not a simple "oiling" problem.
