It's the Titanium Vines and Roses 12. I had a titanium backspacer and obverse scale to replace the original G10. The other 12 is one of the factory Titanium 12s.

What's a good sharpening tool for these? Didn't find one in a search of this thread, besides Wicked Edge, which is a bit pricey for me. I was debating sending it back to Emerson, but don't want to wait.

Emerson's sharpening instructions on their website show some type of a diamond hand tool.

If you're uncertain about your own sharpening skills or have a complex knife, like a CQC-15 and we're talking about a production knife then send it in. The turnaround is very fast.

If it's a custom I can recommend someone to do it for you who has a very solid reputation and won't be the months and months (and months) for custom work. (Ernie does each of these himself).

Otherwise, pretty much any sharpening system will work. he designed these, from the angles to the type of steel, to be easy to put an edge back on.

I submit for your weekend viewing pleasure...

The owners of EKI and Steel Flame agreed to make this clip for me. I'm surprised it was never requested before. I really like it. It is as if the shield is being held in front of his chest.

Aw, dammit. I'm new to the club, recently got a Mini CQC7.

Posting that could potentially hurt my wallet. That is so sweet!

Mini7 is a great knife, congrats!

It is extremely cool. It is also a very specific tool. Because of the copper beryllium blade it is used in explosives ordinance demolition, hence "EOD". The edge will lose sharpness much faster than a steel knife. It is extremely important if you get one to not sharpen it yourself as you would another knife unless you have robust ventilation and dust management gear. This material is very damaging to lungs.

Regardless, it is s sweet, bad implement!

In all honesty, that would be an investment buy and it would be a toss up between that, or three less expensive Emersons. I'm eyeballing the commander variants at the moment. I work with steel, so that definitely caught my eye!
