    Curiously Strong Mints



    A box of Curiously Strong Mints seems to attract all sorts of innovations….

    Lisa's Curiously Strong Knife.



    1/8” 1095, superior convex edge, square and ground spine (for striking a firesteel) and sharp.

    Ready to go…

    Minty good.

    Who would not need one?

    Lisa,
    I received this wonderful little knife the other day. In no time at all, I've removed any indication that it was ever sharp...doh!

    Any recommendations on how to get that edge back? I'm obviously not very good at sharpening so any direction would be a good start.

    Thanks for a neat tool,
    Jay

    Thank you for these, Lisa. I bought two, one for me, one for my wife, and we absolutely love them. They are, without a doubt, the best of the knives this size.

    Was this a one time run or are you going to always have them available? I'm thinking ahead, gonna need four or five for next Christmas. Do I need to buy them now or can I wait? I would rather wait, because if I buy them now they will probably wind up in my pocket. I have this addiction...

    The edge retention on my Altoid Knives have held up quite well. Light stropping after every hard use restores the edge retention and keeps you from the downhill path to getting a blunt edged knife.

    Click on that link and look at the various ways of sharpening and stropping your convex edged knives. The videos by Turly Knives and NechakoRiver are the best two, IMHO. Sharpening convex edges is super-easy and super-inexpensive.

    Good luck!

    Just send it back to me and Ill sharpen it for free. Otherwise I can tell you a couple ways to get it shearp. A cheap mousepad for a buck and some fine grain sandpaper is one way..Stropping on a leather belt is a good way to keep it that way..Id be happy to put a new edge on it for you though..

    Thanks for the offer. I think I need a lot more practice since I've been making it even less sharp using the mousepad and sandpaper method. I'll review the videos more and keep at it.

    It's a wonderful little tool.
